Telluride Arts opens new artist studios space

Telluride Arts has announced the opening of Illium Artist Studios, a creative space above Ghost Pocket Kitchen that includes the Wheel House pottery studio.

The Illium Artist Studios will support crafted disciplines such as jewelry making, digital media, painting, sculptures, ceramics and more. Local artists can sublet a studio space and are currently available on a first-come, first-serve basis.

“Securing affordable studios for local artists has been a part of Telluride Arts’ mission since a group of local artists established the Stronghouse Studios in 2005,” the organization said in a news release.

The opening of Illium Artist Studios comes following the announcement that Voodoo Studios, which Telluride Arts established in 2017, will become Telluride’s newest large-scale affordable housing project. It’s expected to break ground this spring.

The co-working aspect of the studios will include 60 to 120 square feet work spaces, 24-hour access and free Wi-Fi.
