We are looking to lease additional space to divide into private and community studios for artists working in a variety of media. If you are interested in private studio space, please email us.
The space we are considering, is located adjacent to Magpie3x3's current studio and will offer the following location, community and amenities.
Magpie3x3 is located on historic Frankfort Avenue - a quirky arts and entertainment district near downtown Louisville. Friendly neighborhood businesses include tattoo studio, florist, ethnic cuisine, locally crafted ice cream parlor and many boutiques, bars, restaurants and other small local shops. Frankfort Avenue was established in the early 19th century and maintains a unique cultural, historical and commercial ambiance - small town america in the heart of a culturally sophisticated metropolitan area.
The street is served by public transit, and the Frankfort Avenue Business Association operates the FAT Friday Trolley Hop event the last Friday of each month which attracts a crowd looking for shopping and entertainment.
Magpie3x3's main teaching studio is a fully equipped pottery working and teaching space; including two large electric kilns, 10 wheels, slab roller, extruder and several work tables. The interior space is open with a lot of natural light and a warm atmosphere. The building is a renovated shotgun house with approximately 1200 square feet, covered porch and small parking lots in front and rear.
The gallery at Magpie3x3 is introducing an exhibition schedule beginning with our first of monthly openings on November 30, 2018 to coincide with the trolley hop. The store front gallery invites the community to join in the clay experience at their own pace; as a visitor, collector or someone interested in trying out clay or an experienced clay artist looking to build their skills. Magpie3x3 puts out a weekly newsletter to our growing mailing list, which provides further opportunity to invite participation from the community at large.
We are building Magpie3x3 as a community, around our mutual love of art - ceramics in particular. The addition of 1500 square foot studio space would allow us to bring more passionate artists on-site to contribute and share in the positive energy, providing access to impromptu critique, inspiration and sharing of ideas.
