Alchemy Chosen as Lander Chamber of Commerce "2017 Rookie of the Year"
On Feb 3, 2017 at the Lander Chamber of Commerce's Annual Awards Luncheon, Alchemy was chosen as the 2017 Rookie of the Year. The Chamber had this to say about Alchemy:
"On November 6, 2015 Alchemy: An Artist Cooperative was born on Main Street. This unique model of business houses local artists in the back Studio 320 space as well as Alchemy’s front retail space that sells Studio 320 artwork and other local artists that are part of the 14-member cooperative. Since its opening Alchemy has become a vibrant member of Lander’s Main Street community of merchants promoting hand-made local art, shopping locally and building a sense of community by displaying original works year round. Alchemy has also been an active member of the Chamber from day one participating in the Shop Local campaign, Storefront Competition, hosting Business After Hours and has opened its doors for numerous Lander community events. Alchemy artists take pride in their “strength in numbers” and have proven that cooperative models of business can be successful and that small communities can support local artists. For an impressive first year of business, the 2017 Rookie of the Year Award goes to Alchemy".
