The Art Studio, Inc.

Art Studio Incorporated, Beaumont, Texas

The Art Studio, Inc. has served as a venue to all things art-related in the area – painting, sculpture, ceramics, and even music – for 34 years and counting. Greg Busceme Sr. founded the Studio in the 1980s to provide much-needed work space to artists whose lack of space was killing their productivity. The Studio has remained booked ever since, even renting out public space to artists truly desperate for a place to work. For a cheap price an artist can set up wherever they can find a spare bit of space to do so as long as they leave no trace when they go. It’s not perfect, but it provides more than just a spot on the floor to put your dropcloth; even without a tenant space the artist has access to the various tools the Studio provides: kilns and potter’s wheels and the like.
