It’s hard to believe but Chapterhouse turns 10 this coming Sunday so we’re throwing together a little shindig to celebrate. From 12 to 4 we’ll be serving up mimosas and hanging out, sharing crazy stories about this place we have called home. We’ll be having a grand toast to ten more years at 3pm! Stop by if you can!
We survived the Pope-pocolypse and now we’re ready to celebrate with a new art opening at the Chapterhouse! We’ve got the TEN YEAR ANNIVERSARY on November 1st so we’ll be extra saucy and maybe a little liquored up! This is also a special all ladies show with Eleanor Grosch, Martha Rich and Gina Triplett. Please join us for some wine and snacks, hugs and serious vibes as we cheer on the shop for another ten years! Thanks to the neighbors and past and present employees who helped make it possible! We love you!

SUMMER VIBES • I’M SRYSLY
The leaves are wiggling into the light and the buds are about to pop as we send this out. We thought it would never come, and we could only watch in awe and wonder at this new thing which lay before us. We wept and laughed and it was glorious. The wretched, overlong winter faded into a blissful state of blessed relief and now we can’t help but ask; Is this a good time for another art opening at the Chapterhouse? Thankfully the answer is: HELL YES. So please come out and join us this Friday to bask in the warm glow of these two new artists: JEFFY THOMAS & APRIL KUHN. Quench your hungers with delicious wine and snacks. Gaze upon the beauty and unsurpassed skill of these warriors of modern art. Bring a towel because you are going to bathe in the light of a new dawn of awesomeness.

Her writings are often published in limited edition, handcrafted chapbooks by small and micropresses such as Belladonna (New York), Horse Less Press (Denver), Little Red Leaves (Texas), Albion Press (Philadelphia), and Zumbar Press (San Francisco). Recent work can be found in Aufgabe, Conveyor, XPoetics, Thermos, Women’s Studies Quarterly, OmniVerse, Jacket2, EcoPoetics, and Encyclopedia.

That’s right, winter is here and to keep warm we’re throwin’ down the freshness this Friday! Join us and help welcome Blair Barbour and Chris Ginnetti to the Chapterhouse family. We’ll all be hanging out with their art and drinking lattes together! There will also be wine, snacks and good times so bring a towel and point your feet toward the place where we’ll be: Chapterhouse Cafe & Gallery 620 S 9th Street!
