Banana Factory resident artists make up the heart and soul of our programming. We have 28 studios which are all rent subsidized enabling artists to afford a special space to create their work. In addition to offering lower rents, the studio artists have an annual group show, an annual featured artist wall and 11 First Friday events where hundred and hundreds of visitors from the community and beyond go to see the studios, meet the artists and enjoy an exciting and free evening. Many of our resident artists teach courses as well and have first pick of teaching art classes at the Banana Factory. Diversity is the name of the game here. Artists in their early twenties can talk to artists in their 70’s and there are all mediums covered from painting, sculpture, photography, and pottery.
