ART.WORK is a local, cutting-edge collective of artisan entrepreneurs that operate in a variety of industries. Our studio in the heart of downtown Austin is intended to facilitate the “WORK” side of artwork during the week and the ART side of artwork on the weekends. All week we are researching, learning, promoting, and closing deals, the ART.WORK studio is constantly electrified by our members’ drive to elevate their work and careers to new heights. Friday nights are Private Artist Showcases by RSVP only.
At ART.WORK, we operate under two defining pillars:
1. A transformative idea or evocative design will never find a voice if it’s promotion doesn’t honor the original inspiration. The business-side of art is often neglected by the artists themselves. We empower our members with tools and resources to negotiate, disseminate, and thrive off of their work.
2. Creativity wilts without diversity and community.
Brainstorming, problem-solving, and creative energy are inherently amplified when participants represent a diverse cross-section artisan industries. ART.WORK members are expected to leverage the multitude of creative benefits afforded to them by the unique composite of artisans from various backgrounds sharing their workspace.
