Today marks the third anniversary of Chroma Studios! April 1, 2008 we opened the doors as an art studio space. We had 10 studios in our original location at 1606 Central Ave SE, suite 201. Since then, we have gone through several changes. We grew into a large 12,000 square foot space and then downsized to a more manageable 6,000. After a two year gallery run, we are back to being just studio space again. Only now, we have two locations. The original Central location has 11 studios populated with painters, photographers, a web designer, a sculptor and a writer. The downtown location has 17 studios and is quickly becoming our band/musician location with a few artists mixed in for fun!
We have enjoyed the ride and would like to thank Albuquerque for help in making Chroma Studios a success!
This morning we picked up the keys to our new art space!! The working name of the new space is ‘Chroma on Roma’. After measuring all the studios, we have set the rents according to size. You can see a list of all the studios available on the Studios page. The rents will vary from $150 to $400/month. There will also be a few spaces opening up at the Central location, because some artists plan to move with us to the new building. We are not only a traditional artist space, we are open to writers, poets, teachers, photographers, architects, graphic designers, videographers, musicians(as long as you aren’t too loud), any creative field really!
If you would like to see studios available at the new building, we will be there to show studios tomorrow, Tuesday the 7th at 10 am and 5:30 pm. The new building is on the NE corner of 1st and Roma in downtown. The entrance is on the south side of the bldg. If neither of those times works for you, please give Paula a call at 259-6320 to set up another more convenient time, or if you have any other questions. To see the spaces available at the Central location, please call for an appointment.
