Our relatively untouched, mid-century warehouse, with exposed brick and a myriad of cherished imperfections, provides a perfect backdrop to creative thinking and industrial inspired art. Because we recognize the importance of utilizing and giving new life to materials, and the joy of continuing the story of a particular piece, we require all Artists in Nesting to create a piece of art through deconstruction and/or up-cycling directly from our resource library of materials.
All artists are also required to design and host a workshop within the warehouse to educate the community about a particular style of art, and bring awareness to sustainable artistic practices. At the end of his or her residency, each artist will choose a piece to display for six months on the Magpies & Peacocks gallery wall.
This program is a way for us to further facilitate and support the creation of art, while encouraging sustainability, providing resources and making connections for artists in the community.
If you are interested in being a part of this program, contact us and use “Artist In Nesting” in the subject line. We currently have the space to house two studios at one time. We are excited to continue to open our doors, hearts and all the corners, nooks and crannies of the warehouse to art, creativity and sustainable innovation.
