Meet Our Monthly Featured Artists!

The Workhouse Arts Center has over 60 resident visual artists throughout our artist buildings as well as the Arches Gallery. Each month, we feature individual artists or a group of artists from each building as our Monthly Featured Artists. The artists exhibit a current body of work either solo or as part of a group and during our Second Saturday Artwalk they are onsite to speak about their work during the exhibit opening reception.

Moving forward we will be sharing our monthly featured artists and their exhibits here!
