Toledo’s newest shared space for artists and creative writers, Launch Pad Cooperative, invites the public to celebrate their grand opening and inaugural exhibition “Prologue” on Friday, June 15, 2012 from 6-10pm unveiling their 911 Jefferson Avenue location, at the Davis Building, in downtown Toledo.
The exhibition will feature the best works of the cooperative’s five founding, core member artists – Timothy Gaewsky, Crystal Gale Phelps, Kimberly Adams, Ian Welch and Allison Parsons. “Prologue” will run the duration of the summer with future events and receptions to follow.
Launch Pad Cooperative is an artist-run gallery that was established in 2012, by Timothy Gaewsky, with the intent to facilitate a network for emerging visual artists and creative writers of high quality who wish to enrich the community of Toledo and beyond. Launch Pad’s mission is to provide support and encouragement for artists and writers, nurture the talents of one another, cultivate ideas and creativity, foster cross-discipline collaborations, and actively pursue broader exposure of member’s work.
Launch Pad also seeks to encourage experimentation and innovation through the presentation of fresh, provocative new works by cooperative members. Through exhibitions, lectures and artist talks, poetry readings, performances, film and video series, and community outreach, the gallery is dedicated to the cultural enrichment of Greater Toledo.
