creating community one artist at a time…
In late 2012, a great number of New River Valley artists gathered for a critical exchange of ideas, needs, goals and desires, and what emerged was a resounding interest in an affordable, collaborative, creative environment within which artists could work together, exchange ideas and promote on another’s work. Within weeks, our old office location at the corner of Faculty and Progress Streets in the heart of the newly minted Arts Overlay District of Blacksburg was transformed into just such a collaborative working studio environment for artists. With that, The Artful Place, A Fine Studio was born as a Studio Project of The Artful Lawyer, A Fine Gallery Inc.
The Artful Place currently claims 15 artists in residence. At The Artful Place, emerging and well-established artists alike work side by side, collaborating and creating in an artfully inspired and thought-stimulating environment. Workshops, classes and special events covering the spectrum of art media and styles and pushing the limits of what can be done in the space are in the works at The Artful Place as well. Stop by and be inspired, or lend some inspiration of your own, to this wonderfully collaborative and creative environment.
Find out more about The Artful Place’s events and offerings in our Calendar section and at our open Group on Facebook. The Studio is also open for your workshop or meeting needs; download our workshop agreement here.
