Magpie3x3 is looking to expand and provide studios for artists working in a variety of media. We are planning approximately 14 spaces ranging in size from a 6 cubic foot “station” to a 400+ cubic foot studio. Prices from $65 to 500 per month. Spots expected become available in April / May 2019.
Magpie3x3 is located on historic Frankfort Avenue - a quirky arts and entertainment district near downtown Louisville. Friendly neighborhood businesses include tattoo studio, 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 those 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.
We invite the community to join in the art & clay experience at their own pace; as visitors, collectors, for entertainment and experienced clay artists 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 approximately 1600 square foot for private studio space would allow us to bring more passionate artists on-site to contribute and share in the positive energy, providing opportunities for collaboration, critique, inspiration and sharing of techniques and ideas.
