"2018 is the year of new opportunities and new beginnings," said Owner of Renaissance Art Café Femi Anderson.

Anderson said she has already started to get her business settled into its new home, 123 Front Street.

"To be able to give people more opportunity to paint, come have fun, look at some art once we get the gallery part going," said Anderson.

Renaissance Art Café has been a mobile business for the last four years.

Anderson said this move will help secure her endeavors.

"It will allow us to be more stable," said Anderson.

Anderson explained that the move downtown will be a dream come true.

"I've been researching downtown for five years, so I've been searching and deciding where I want to be and always wanted to be downtown because I want to help it grow," said Anderson. 

This organization will join the new Front Street Market with neighboring companies.

Anderson said each and every business will benefit from the partnership.

"I'm excited. It's good to be with good people and ready to enjoy downtown," said Anderson.

Anderson said she will continue to use her business to inspire people and create a love for art to add to the downtown environment.

"I just love to allow people to use art to change the way they think about things. They can change their mindset and it can also make them feel good," explained Anderson.

Renaissance Art Café is set to open the first week of May.

The business will announce its open house party in the next week or so.
