16 Main Street, Madison, Alabama

The honorable Major Paul Finley will join us to cut the ribbon and officially welcome the public to our new community of artists. This will be a great opportunity to meet the artists, tour the studios and see samples of our work offered in our gallery.

There will be wine, hor d'oeuvres and door prizes. Along with the Madison Belles, there will be a guided Spirit Stroll at 7pm.

Please feel free to share this invitation with others. This is just the beginning of a wonderful new chapter in Madison's history. We hope that you all can join us for an exciting evening of art and fun!

Sneak Peak

Here is a little sneak peak at what has been going on in the big yellow house.

Artists are creating!

Ned is getting the kiln fired up, while Greg is hanging all the lighting. Terry and Abner are busy creating a beautiful walkway for our guests.

Paint is going on, shelves are being hung and studio doors are getting a whole new look!

The parking lot has been packed this last couple of weeks, day and night. The artists are trying to get ready for the big Grand Opening!

SA's job of doing the Spirit Strolls is wonderful. But we have found that he is pretty handy with power tools as well!

A Whole New Life

What do you get when you add art and an historic home? Something rather remarkable! This old house, formerly known as the Clay House Museum, is getting a whole new life!

Something New is Happening to Downtown Madison

Something new is happening in downtown Madison? The old Clay House Museum has been taken over! Can you guess what it is going to be? Check out some of these pictures below of the beginning stages. And don't forget to come back for the updates as they unfold! Painting has begun!
Kathy, our designer, has volunteered her time to be a part of this great place!

One of our resident artists got a little carried away on the paint can....can you all guess what is going in here yet?

It is gonna take LOTS and LOTS of paint!

Hmmmm, a lamp? It looks very artsy. Can you guess what it is yet?

Everything is taped, covered and ready for a whole new LIFE!

All the walls in this home are WHITE!
Including most of the fireplaces
