Studios Inc’s permanent collection is showcased in the studios.gallery space. It is a large and varied collection of artwork donated by artists from our Residency Program. The growing collection of diverse work from Kansas City’s most prominent artists allows studios.gallery to engage all art communities as an arts-centric program; offering educational and acquisition opportunities for the casual art enthusiast to prominent art collector.
The work sold from the permanent collection supports our commitment to mid-career artists, by placing all proceeds directly back into our five programs. The permanent collection allows Studios Inc to earn revenue to sustain the overall organization as well as other community-based art programs.
All of the work purchased in our public gallery space is priced at a fair market value. We respect our residents and work hard to ensure that their artwork isn’t devalued and garners the acclaim that it deserves.
