Exciting New Changes Coming to Athena’s

Calling all local artists! We want to help you get your art out there!


Athena VII recently launched a new online store where we partner with local artists to sell one-of-a-kind art online. This is something we feel will be mutually beneficial to both of us.


Athena VII is a unique digital platform for local artists to showcase their work. Unlike traditional galleries that often focus on established artists, this market welcomes creators at all stages of their careers. From emerging talents to seasoned professionals, Athena VII offers everyone a chance to shine. This inclusivity helps diversify the art scene in the Salt Lake City area, introducing residents and visitors to a broader range of styles and perspectives.


Showcasing your art on Athena VII’s new website is more than just an opportunity to sell art; it’s a chance for local artists to grow. The market’s interactive environment allows artists to receive direct feedback from buyers and fellow artists. This immediate interaction is invaluable for personal and professional development, helping artists refine their techniques and better understand their audience.


Art markets like the one in Utah play a significant role in bolstering the local economy. By attracting visitors from around the state and beyond, Athena VII stimulates economic activity in Salt Lake City and surrounding communities. Art collectors and enthusiasts often explore the surrounding area, patronizing local restaurants, cafes, and shops. This influx of visitors not only benefits the artists but also supports a wide range of local businesses.


Athena’s also promotes sustainability by encouraging the purchase of locally made goods. When you buy a piece of art here, you’re not just acquiring a beautiful object; you’re supporting an artist who lives and works in your community. This focus on local production helps reduce the environmental impact associated with shipping goods long distances and fosters a more sustainable economy.


Beyond its role as a coffee shop and online art gallery, Athena VII serves as a gathering place for the community. It’s a space where people can come together to celebrate creativity, share ideas, and build relationships. Whether you’re an artist, a collector, or someone who simply enjoys the beauty of art (with maybe a hint of dark brew in the air), the market offers a sense of belonging and connection.


Athena VII strives to be more than just your new favorite coffee shop; we are aiming to help promote local business and artists on a much larger scale. Email [email protected] to find out how Athena VII can help get your art more exposure.
