theArtWorks™ houses  a 7K square foot gallery, artists studios, coffee shop, wifi, and more.  The gallery gives artists a place to work their work, the community an event venue.  Studios include workspace, individual galleries and shop.  Meeting and classrooms are also available. And of course, the coffee shop and wifi enhances space for conversations, meetings, and social interaction.


The Studios

The studios are looking good. One of these days in the not too distant future, people will want to come to theArtWorks™ just to see the clever and creative ways the artists have fixed up their spaces, inside and outside along the village streets.

Jim and Betsy have allowed the artists to do what they want to their studios, within reason of course, keeping in mind that there is a New Orleans theme going on. That is quite a license to an artist and also makes for a lot of fun. Even if they look finished, most of the studios are works in progress, and on any given day, you are likely to find an artist changing the color of a wall, rearranging, adding new pieces. There are bold and bright colors, interesting exteriors and lighting, each studio as unique as the artist who uses it. Who knew that so much could be done with 150 square feet!
