We offer large, moveable tables, walls for exhibits or for working, space for small events, pop-ups, workshops, or classes, a studio sink, and other amenities.
Located in The Forrester Building on E. Redwood Ave, just across from the Larry Spring Museum and close to downtown, we hope to become a hub for creative activity and a place that brings people together. Get a better look inside on our Studio Gallery page.
Looking into our crystal ball, we see pop-gallery opportunities, art showings for young and emerging artist, workshops, karaoke night, film screenings, house concerts, artist residencies and a core group of people working together in a shared space.
Coming soon: Open Studio Days, First Friday evenings and an Art Salon.
Two years ago, on October 1st, 2019, Randy Tuell & Cynthia Sumner purchased the property at 301-309 E. Redwood Ave., which has now become known as The Forrester Building. It consists or 3 storefront spaces and 6 upstairs residences. From the get-go, our intention has been to include space rental for artists and makers in the building and to expand community through art. Covid put a hitch in our plans, but as we learn to live in this new era, we're looking to include other voices in this evolving picture.
We've kicked off 2022 with three new artists coming into the space. It's great to see creative energy and enthusiasm coming into the building and we're excited to see what's next. We'll be making further introductions going along, but for now, we whole-heartedly welcome Rebecca Wallace and Kathleen MacGregor . More to come, so check back soon or get on our mailing list.
Art is meant to be seen and for that, it needs to be accessible.
I’ve been painting in the space at 309 E. Redwood Ave. for the past couple of years and have noticed the natural curiosity of passers-by. While working in a storefront window can feel somewhat exposed, my hope is that seeing artwork in process with it's messy imperfection, might dissolve the separation people often feel about art, who it's for and who can make it. I’m hoping to to share this space with other like-minded artists who prefer to work in the company of others, want to be a part of fostering creative community and promoting greater visibility for the arts.
