About Made in Warren
Made in Warren Artist Cooperative offers unique artwork and a wonderful variety of gifts. It features work by over 40 artists from Southeastern New England, including paintings, prints, photography, ceramics, textiles, bags, jewelry, stained glass, fiber art, wood crafts, hand-woven baskets and more. As a handmade-in-RI shop all purchases are tax free, and because it is an artist-run non-profit, all profits of sold work go directly to the artists in the cooperative!
After the first year in business, MIW was awarded by Rhode Island Monthly as "Best New Artist Cooperative" in the Best of RI! Still successful going into our third year in business, we have incredible support from the community. We are so thankful for our customers and wonderful membership for making MIW what it is today.
The forty plus artists each have a part in running the co-op, and split the shifts evenly. There is a board of six artists that is legally required for running the co-op, but the board only facilitates and handles some of the more big-picture tasks. The store not only serves this vibrant group of local artists but benefits and interacts with the larger community through collaborative promotions, demonstrations, art nights, and special events.
The store is currently open 10:00 -6:00 pm everyday. Free parking is always available downtown (there is a free municipal parking lot close by behind the police station), and free street parking can be found often along Main Street.
