Small Business Thursday—Bastion Art Studios
A Studio For Everyone’s Needs
“At the Bastion we believe that people should have the resources needed to get their best work out into the world. Our well equipped art and music studios ensure that people have easy and convenient access to the tools they need, our library and workshops ensure they have the instruction needed to further their craft, or learn a new skill. The Bastion Art Gallery provides an outlet for our members to get their work, and more importantly, themselves into the public eye.”
The Bastion Art Studio is a new collective space opening on 2016 Peach St here in Erie, PA. Their mission is to give artists the needed space and resources to perfect their art form. Paying patrons will have full access to studios, workshops, galleries and an entire community that can help carriers in this field blossom into something beautiful. Paying patrons will get full access to all amenities offered at Bastion depending on which membership is chose. If patrons decide to choose full time, that is $100/month. Under this plan, you will get 24/7 access to all of the studios and amenities. When using their mobile app, it will unlock doors after hours so patrons can have their own quiet time. Another plus of the full time membership is that all artwork sold in the gallery, the artist will get 100% of the commission. The part time membership, which is $50/month, allows access during hours of operation, and the artist will receive 75% of the commission on their work sold in the gallery. If you are not quite sure if the Bastion Studio is the right fit, you can also join them with a day pass at $15. This will give you full access to the studio for one day during hours of operation.
