In 2016, Edgewater Artists in Motion (EAIM) purchased a commercial space in the building at 1070 W. Granville to get a permanent presence in the neighborhood and give Edgewater artists a home.
We have a number of EGA members and area residents who are involved with the organization which is excited to announce that the space – called Gallery 1070 – is currently in construction and its unveiling is expected to take place during the Edgewater Arts Festival, Sept. 23-24.
The first gallery exhibit will expose the work of EAIM’s Member Artists to the 12,000+ art lovers expected at the Festival.
Gallery 1070 will include two spaces:
- one dedicated to group exhibits, solo shows, fundraisers, and other special arts events (public and private);
- the other to be used for art workshops and private parties.
Artists will be able to display their work, be part of Edgewater Artists in Motion’s “exhibits season,” and rent the space to host their own art classes (or even work on their own art!)
The public will be able to enjoy art shows all year round and use the space for community and private events.
Artists interested in learning more about the Gallery and how to exhibit their work there are invited to attend their free business workshop for artists (June 22.) The workshop will focus on how to increase the visibility of your artwork online and participants will also have the chance to take a preview tour of the Gallery and learn more about EAIM’s plans for the space.
