One-day Pop-Up Art Sale & Exhibit in Project 9 Gallery
9 Canal Street
Bellows Falls, VT
Saturday, November 28, 9AM-3PM

When Danhenry, owner of the 'you can have it store (www.youcanhaveit.net) located in the Exner Block at 9 Canal Street in Bellows Falls, Vermont is asked about his philosophy of giving things away, his response is "because it's a good thing to do." Danhenry's unique concept is that he has no interest in discussing money, but rather wishes to offer the random items he collects at no cost to store patrons. Clothing, books, glassware, paintings, children's items, collectibles, ceramics and small furniture are among the many offerings.

Expanding upon this notion, Danhenry will host his first Art Sales Exhibit to help fund the work on Saturday, November 28 from 9am-3pm in the lobby of Project Space 9 Gallery, 9 Canal Street in downtown Bellows Falls, a community Gallery managed by the Rockingham Arts and Museum Project (RAMP). His recommendation is "shop early for selection, shop late for price."

Danhenry began giving away items in July of 2011 at the town-wide tag sale in Cavendish, VT. Since then he has donated items at various flea markets in New England. His reasons for doing so go beyond wanting to ensure that cost is not a barrier. "In these economic times I have read many news accounts of the bleak prospects that exist for secure work, housing, family and community ties. Youcanhaveit.net is an action concept designed to bring hope and change by providing people with all manner of goods to be used any way they wish, to read, to look at, listen to or whatever they wish without the consideration of money."

The art exhibit has mostly paintings and pottery that were gathered here and there by Danhenry with the idea of doing this sales exhibit.

Project Space 9 is wheelchair accessible by calling in advance to make arrangements.

The Rockingham Arts and Museum Project's (RAMP) mission is to make art accessible to all. RAMP receives funding from the VT Arts Council and the National Endowment for the Arts. For more information, visit www.rampvt.org or all 802-463-325
