INSTALLATION BY RACHEL ANDRZEJEWSKI AT GOLDEN RULE COLLECTIVE.
Golden Rule—a jewelry shop, art gallery and collective housed in a charming white clapboard home in Excelsior—is celebrating its one-year birthday Saturday June 4 (10 a.m. to 5 p.m.) and Sunday June 5 (noon-5). The festivities include pop-ups on Saturday by A Mano (handmade artistic treasures curated from coast to coast); Kiki Koyote (Minneapolitan Kris Singleton’s “everyday” jewelry) and NEAL Jewelry (by Minneapolitan Lauren Neal); and Solid Manufacturing Co. (home and leather goods).
For all of you yoga and Pilates enthusiasts, Lululemon has a trunk show on Sunday (3-5 p.m.) and Coffee Cart Mpls will be available at the same time to fuel your shopping experience. Also throughout the weekend Ashley Mary will have her abstract artworks and vivid line drawings for sale, as will Missy Monson, who paints lovely abstract pastels. It’s really a who’s who of young makers and artists breaking onto the scene. The new WORKSHOP upstairs will provide a wave of milliennial makers with space to create and a sense of community for testing out new wares.
As Jahna Peloquin wrote in Minnesota Monthly, Golden Rule brings the maker movement to the outskirts of Minneapolis, with a store that “is stocked with a thoughtfully curated, contemporary selection of handcrafted goods from local, national, and international makers.” The new WORKSHOP upstairs will also provide a new wave of milliennial makers with space to create and a sense of community for testing out new wares.
