Gillis Art Lab

As the Historic Columbus Park neighborhood where we live and have our studio is coming alive, we have decided to open our fabulous studio space to host guest artists in the newly formed Gillis Art Lab.

Gillis Art Lab is a welcoming and casual space for artists to test ideas and show work outside of a formal gallery setting. A place to demystify the creative process by allowing viewers to see work in progress. A meeting place for artists of all disciplines to come together in conversation and collaboration. A semi-annual residency space for artists to have focused time to incubate new ideas.  It is all a grand adventure!
