studio space at the new NEST

Applications for studio space at the new NEST Arts Factory are now being accepted from artists who are serious about pursuing their art in the professional setting of a community facility. Studios are intended to be for working artists, and although artists may display and sell work from their studios, the primary function of the studio is to create art.
