When Chattanooga Workspace, a longtime home to local artists, closed in 2020, artists found themselves dreaming of a new space where an artist community could grow and thrive. Together they worked to create new affordable studio spaces that could support local artists.
Artists in the space have cast a vision for a community that is collaborative, thriving and supportive of one another. They also believe in the importance of being part of the larger arts community in Chattanooga.
Together we are excited to host 40 studios, a beautiful clerestory gallery, and a community workspace area. We host events, create artwork, and support each other and the Chattanooga arts community.
The building located at 1673 S. Holtzclaw historically was home to a yarn dyeing factory in the early 20th century.
