Alfred Arts Studio at The West’s doors will officially welcome the public on August 7, 2021 for Makers on Main Street; part of Alfred University’s Reunion Weekend. Transforming the space formerly known as The Manhattan West into a community arts studio, this space will serve a purpose once again. Fostering creativity and encouraging inclusivity, offering workshops, classes, and rentable studio space, are all within the property's potential.
Seeking volunteers: John Ninos and his construction crew have been making major headway on the physical needs for the property. We need some help! We will be opening in stages, beginning with what we have at hand. On Sundays, after the Farmers Market, we would love your help with various cleaning and painting projects in the space! Interested? Join us on Sundays from 2-4pm beginning July 11.
Seeking Donations: We are building from the ground up. This is a community effort! Do you have studio supplies in your garage or basement? We are in need of basic essentials such as wheels, electric kilns, tables, shelves, and storage units.
Interested in joining our project? Our next scheduled zoom meeting to answer questions regarding the studio project is on Thursday, July 8 at 7:00.
