“Montage” a new arts collaborative to be on Mill Avenue


If you’re a local artist and would like to work and show your art on Mill Avenue, I hope you’ll check out Montage, a new project of the Downtown Tempe Community, Inc.  slated to open this Fall.  Montage is a shared studio concept that will bring together artists and art patrons in an interactive, collaborative environment.  Member Artists will enjoy 24 hour access to shared studio space and participate in group shows exhibiting their work.  The studio will benefit emerging and established artists by offering exposure to the 4 million plus visitors each year attracted to the Mill Avenue District.  Artists will also have the unique opportunity of being part of a newly formed community of artists who support and learn from each other.

If you’re not an artist, but love art, be ready to see some great local art every Third Thursday as well as other hours designated as open to the public where you can meet the artists, ask them questions about their work, and know that when you purchase art directly from the artist, 100% of the funds go to the artist.
