Lyra Art Studios
We are located on the top floor of the once Nickerson House Community Center on the corner of Delaine/Appleton Streets in Olneyville. This photo is a composite image so it's a bit distorted. I've also added the 'Lyra Art Studios' sign digitally since we are currently without signage. The building will hopefully be painted this Spring-Summer. Our google maps address is 133 Delaine Street but the entrance is on Appleton Street.
LyraArtStudios consist of 7 private studios with a gallery and a conference room that we will be using to teach workshops. We are currently looking for 2 additional artists to join our community.
Our 2017 artists are
Deb Hickey photo-transfer collage
RIBS Rhode Island Black Storytellers
Katy Dika; soft goods designer
