Founded in 2010, The Clay Lady’s Artist Co-op & Galleries is a 10,000-square-foot building providing studio space in Nashville, Tenn. The Co-op offers gallery opportunities in a mentoring, supportive and educational environment. They are committed to creating a community of artists who support one another to succeed individually as they facilitate a love for creativity in the artists, their friends, family and the city. The Co-op sustains this commitment by sharing resources, experience and opportunities. They expand the commitment with four community outreaches per year to create the energy of giving which is at the heart of cooperation.

The Co-op was founded by a core group of eight artists and a few contractors who spent three months renovating and preparing an abandoned building. Within one year, The Co-op was fully rented with 24 artists and paying expenses. Within that first year they also raised more than $6,000 for community programs that support arts with children.

The Co-op now has more than 35 members and is thriving. Co-op artists attribute their success to the spiritual principle of sharing resources and opportunities. They especially believe one must give to receive. Please join them at any time to see what can happen when artists create together!
