Mike Spagnola said his store sells art and music from local artists. When Mike’s store, Underground, sells local music all of the profits go to the musicians. The store takes a small percentage of the profits from art sales.

“There are seasoned artists coming39f7ac9ee25d15f0718c5b185e04ee22 and there are new artists,” Spagnola said. “Artists who are 16 and 17 years old will be here. A lot of them are excited to meet like minds.”

There will be a wide array of art and artists on display.

“Everything is always cutting edge, but all genres will be represented, from traditional to low brow,” Spagnola said.

“They’re here to rub elbows with other artists. It’s all about exhibiting,” Spagnola said. “They want to have their name and their work recognized.”
