Join us and see what happens when artists create together!
Located in Nashville, TN

Co-op members, alumni and guests all participate in the Annual “Ugly Pot Throw” during our Birthday Bash on Aug 18th, 5-8pm. This began as a practice of letting go of old work to make room for new.  Knowing not every pot makes it to the gallery shelf, we throw pots that didn’t make the cut against our building wall. We shout- “I’m going to make the next pot better”, an ode to those pots that taught us something through the process.  

The Artist Co-op is celebrating 8 years together in Nashville, nurturing life-giving community- one artist at a time! This event is FREE for the whole family, so come celebrate our Birthday and be a part of the community!
