This article about Madison and Main was originally published in Greeley Style Magazine in June 1988. Rodney Barnes, pictured at right in the photo below, is currently Coop president.  Many of the original members are still actively involved with the gallery.  As the article states, making a living as an artist was difficult in 1988 — and that unfortunately has not changed.  It is exciting to know however, that after 28 years the artists coop is clearly a sustainable business concept, and continues to provide professional  working artists and people shopping for the perfect piece of original art the ideal place to connect.
