Mainframe Studios draws 6,000


Mainframe Studios, home to artists and nonprofits, since October has drawn 6,000 visitors since it started open studios from 5 to 8 p.m on the first Friday of the month. Attendees can visit 65 artists’ studios and six nonprofit spaces. The artists work in glass-blowing, gaming, jewelry, painting, ceramics, clothing design, string art and woodworking, for example. Mainframe is a nonprofit that strives to offer affordable workspaces in the former CenturyLink building. Three of the five floors are finished. Fundraising for more renovations continues. There is a growing list of artists waiting for more studios to open. Once complete, Mainframe Studios will be the largest nonprofit workspace for artists in the country. The April 6 event will highlight letterpress printers Red Door Press and the pop-up restaurant offerings of the Tangerine Food Co. The May 4 open studio event will feature album cover artists Jay Vigon and Margo Nahas, a classic rock musical guest, and City Sounds’ newly-adorned public pianos, which will be placed around town.
