WHY

WHY ARE WE DOING THIS?


The goal of Art Lab is fourfold:

1. to provide working studios for a group of artists in a supportive and collaborative atmosphere

2. to provide retail opportunities for those artists


The retail space and working space flow from one to the other quite seamlessly.

Folks really enjoy chatting with the artists about the work.



3. to create a vibrant and welcoming venue for anyone interested in learning various art and craft forms through courses, demonstrations, and general interaction with working artists

4. to establish an exhibition space for work by guest artists
