Newly opened Riverbank Cannabis Collective has partnered with some local artists to display their work that is available for purchase. Currently on display is an oil pastel and black ink set of four pieces on canvas called “Nature is Calling” by Alise Frosceno. The 2018 environmental set is priced at $400. Frosceno is a local artist and business owner of Stuff and Things Art Studio in downtown Riverbank.
“It’s hard for artists to find a good reliable space for their art to hang without it costing them an arm and a leg,” added Frosceno. “Such an amazing opportunity for artists in the area to get their work recognized. I know they said they have plenty of wall space and welcome more artists.”
The other local artist on display at Cannabis Collective is Robby the Pencil Minstrel. The military veteran has five single pieces on display that are available to purchase. The art has been on display at the dispensary for a short time and the plan is to have more local art line the walls in the future.
“The pieces are on display on our walls and able to be viewed in the dispensary sales area to spark interest in local art,” said dispensary director Danielle Gravelle. “We are currently seeking out more local area artists to display their art. We are big on supporting the community and the creative talent in it, so we figured instead of just lining the walls with generic dispensary marketing materials that we could instead help encourage the support of local artists as well.”
Stuff and Things Art Studio, at 3220 Santa Fe, Suite C offers open studio time for arts and crafts as well as a variety of art classes and more.
Riverbank Cannabis Collective, 6609 Third St., is a recreational and medical cannabis dispensary that is open daily.
