When Royal Oak’s 323East Gallery closed its doors in 2012, fans were left wondering where to get their lowbrow art fix next. Enter the Inner State Gallery — the latest brainchild of 323East partners Jesse Cory and Dan Armand — which brings the same brand of hip, edgy art in a new, much larger location near Eastern Market. As an added bonus, the duo operates 1XRUN — an online retailer of art prints — out of the building as well. The gist of 1XRUN (pronounced “one-time run”) is simple: The site offers limited-edition art prints of its favorite artists for a limited time, which run the gamut from pop art to surrealism to street art. Imagine the daily deal website Groupon meets an art gallery and you get the idea. 1XRUN and Inner State Gallery bring art to the masses.
