Hello World!

Here is the story of a simple little make space called The Warren. 

Back in November of 2015, we (Rebecca Green and Kayla Stark) began our hunt for an illustration workspace in Nashville. We were both looking for a studio which would act as a full time working office, but also a space for workshops, visiting artists, lectures, demos, shows, and other community events. 

And FINISHED! The Warren is in the top right of the middle building. (photo from google images)

After an initial failed attempt, Kayla's husband Brad (thanks Brad!) found some new buildings going up in the Shoppes on Fatherland District in East Nashville. We were both immediately taken with the space - and it didn't even have walls yet. We were both reeling with ideas for artists and the community to come together and we signed the lease almost immediately. After reaching out to community members, we found three incredible local artists to join the space as well.

The Space the day we moved in! Beautiful white walls and wood floors.

The Warren will officially open in coming weeks, and we can't wait to be part of the Nashville Art Community. If you'd like to receive updates about upcoming events, please sign up for our newsletter! We'll be sharing more soon on the space, the artists, and our vision. 

With love, from all of us here at The Warren.
