ART/ifact Studios launched March 18th, 2017
We are a non-profit organization focused on building a vibrant community by fostering contemporary art and cultivating local artists. We are located in a 1924 warehouse turned art collective + gallery space. We are the first artist gallery in Lakeland, Florida and were part of the first CRA project.
ART/ifact houses local artists which allows for them to have a workspace away from home to cultivate their skills, techniques, and relationships. The open floor gallery design promotes an environment of collaboration and neighborliness with other artists or visitors.
Opportunities to collaborate and participate in the various art shows and events housed in the building, as well as the option to use the space to teach courses or to organize a gallery show or event are just some of the perks of working in ART/ifact's versatile space.
ART/ifact cultivates professional creatives who desire to enhance their city & the lives around them.
Our focus falls on local artists of all kinds and those who work or interact with them regularly. We believe artists are vital to our community and help their environments thrive with beauty and success. They bring culture and communication through means that often transcend languages or other barriers.
Our Board brings in multiple types of arts, city connections, and perspectives, all aiming to grow the art community where we live.
