Meredith Moore, graphic design student and founder of a local creative initiative called Shift Design Group, is hosting her an artist pop-up event, Living Creatively, on the last weekend in February.

Moore is a student at the Savannah College of Art and Design, or SCAD, where she is completing her master’s degree. Living Creatively is Moore’s thesis project, which she must complete upon graduating. She is the sole creator and coordinator of the pop-up shop, and is taking her creative abilities to new heights.

“Because of my close ties with the creative community in Lexington, I wanted to expand my education through this degree to provide more creative opportunities.” Moore said. “The purpose of hosting this event is to help promote the ever-growing creative talent that is here in Lexington.”

The event will host 12 local artists with a variety of different creative talents, and allows for the Lexington community to see the cities creative talents.

“This pop-up shop is a new opportunity for these local artists to share their talent and to promote their businesses,” Moore said.

Moore said the proceeds will go back to the artists, and that she is just setting up the venue as an opportunity for artists to share their work.  

Living Creatively will be held Feb. 27 and Feb. 28 at ArtsPlace in downtown Lexington, 161 N. Mill Street. The shop will be open from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Saturday and from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday.

Moore will also be hosting a cocktail reception Saturday night from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. to celebrate the artists as well as thank the sponsors, donors and volunteers who helped make this event possible. The reception is open to the community.
