Our Story

242 Grand opened its doors in 2009 with the ambition to create an eclectic space for local artists to both create and display their unique work.  As of now, the studio is called home by three artist in residence whose pieces now compose the permanent collection housed in our storefront. 

Our first artist is Perry Gargano, whose home goods and jewelry have been our longest fixture in the store.  Perry hand carves and casts his pieces, which are often dark, playful and nautical in theme.

Soon after, Britt Bolton joined us to add a bold, free spirited twist with her elaborately constructed adornments ranging from headdresses to rings, providing a vibrant juxtaposition to the space.
