JOIN THE TANNERY ROW ARTIST COLONY
Renovations are Happening!
STUDIO SPACE PROJECTED AVAILABILITY AUGUST/ SEPTEMBER!!!!
STUDIO SPACE FACILITY
The incredible community known as the Tannery Row Artist Colony (TRAC) emerged in 2004 from the former Bona Allen Leather factory. The founding artists and craftsman of Tannery Row Mercantile shared their vision and skill to make Tannery Row a stunning collection of studio space. The spacious (formally) two story building echoes with the charm of Historic Buford, GA. Located at 554 W. Main Street.. Please visit our event page for scheduled events and more information.
Each space is built adjacent to the outer walls and opens to an impressive corridor of arching iron works designed by artist Dennis Primm. Many of the doors, windows and gates entering the studio space have unique variations of this theme. Inner walls reflect the needs of the individual artist and all are painted. All of the studios have a least one brick wall that reflects the antique charm of the historic building. The floors are cement and can be painted or matted at the artist’s expense. The outer brick walls are flanked with double rows of arched windows making the entire colony bright and airy. Several spaces may or may not have natural light.
Each artist has access to a community kitchen area, Wi-Fi and a large sink area. All utilities including power, heating, and air-conditioning is included in the rent amount. The tannery website is www.tanneryrowartistcolony.com and offers information about events, artist profiles and links to each of the artists.
The renovation project should be finished by February. New studios are being added and air-conditioning as well.
