As this space approaches its third year of operation, Art Gym remains one of Colfax’s best-kept secrets...but not for long. With new opportunities to connect with other artists, new mediums to explore, and access to the best equipment at a fraction of the cost, Art Gym is a no-brainer and a worthy investment for artists looking to take their creativity to the next level.
The answers are never simple. I've learned that the journeys of creatives rarely are. I believe that, like everyone, we were told when we were young that our art was poor, selfish, and/or pointless. Those of us who think of ourselves as creatives simply chose not to believe that. We chose to keep making.
To the typical art patron, the effect may be every bit as jarring as it is refreshing. The standard 'look but don't touch', atmosphere has been thrown out the window, so check your expectations at the door and jump in!
