1 ArtSpace, inc is a nonprofit organization that was founded in 1980 to create affordable living and working space for artists and cultural organizations, among other groups, its website said.

“Our gallery is an opportunity for emerging artists to display their artwork,” Jero Nesson, director of ArtSpace Maynard, said. He added that it can be very difficult for artists to find such a space.

2 ArtSpace Maynard is located at the former Fowler Middle School, which now holds 43 studios used by 80 artists.

“Almost 10 years ago the town built a new middle school, and they were looking for a productive re-use, “They set up a re-use committee, and they contacted us and asked if we thought it were a good building for artist studios. It turned out to be a terrific fit. We leased the building.”

Maynard’s ArtSpace is one of the largest visual art centers in New England, its website said.

3 , many of the artists of the Fowler School ArtSpace are from Maynard, but others also come from out of town to work there because of its environment.

“About thirty or so artists are from Maynard and others are from Acton or Stow,” he said. “Some travel from Brookline and Cambridge. The sense of community is really attractive.”
