550 Gallery and Studios… Come make us your home!

 The 550 Gallery and Studios primary mission is to offer a gathering space where people can come to learn, create, teach, exhibit and sell their art. 

It has been mentioned over the years that the building has a “great energy” that lends toward a very comfortable space to build skills or to leave inhibitions at the door and learn a new art medium.  Collaboration is a word that is often expressed here… let’s share our skills and learn from each other. Artists do not have to work in isolation, whether a student or a professional, all can find a home here.

There is a Latin phrase, “Docendo discimus”, by teaching we learn. By having opportunities to teach, artist members can experience their craft with renewed excitement while sharing their experiences with students.

The 550 Gallery and Studios provides artists with a convenient location to share and sell their work. With a gift shop, Gallery for shows and our online store we are sure to find the right channel to sell our creations.

There are opportunities to rent the space for special events such as art shows or to teach classes in various specialties. The 550 Gallery and Studios currently has a pottery studio, glass fusion studio, a large, well lit, gathering room where 16 people can comfortably sit around a table to learn 2d art mediums such as watercolors, acrylics, Zentangle and the like. The 900 square foot room in the back offers the opportunity for larger events and is often used as a gallery space or where quilters come to work side by side with their peers. This space offers an excellent opportunity for artists to teach larger groups in a room filled with lots of natural light. If you have a talent you’d like to teach, come make us your home!

The 550 Gallery was established in 1998 as a venue to display and promote the work of local artists.  We continue to host art shows throughout the year highlighting various local artists.
 
The classroom studio space has evolved over the years from life drawing classes and painting lessons to the recent addition of a pottery studio and a glass fusion studio. The pottery area is equipped with 5 wheels, a pug mill, a slab roller, an extruder and a huge variety of molds and tooling equipment. The glass studio has cutting systems, grinders, and several kilns.
