Dallas CreativeSpace Open Studios March 23 & 24

DALLAS, TX- February 26th- Dallas CreativeSpace is pleased to announce Spring Open Studios featuring more than 60 of Dallas’ most innovative artists on Friday, March 23rd from 6pm-10pm and Saturday, March 24th from 2pm-8pm at the historic Continental Gin Building located at 3309 Elm Street Dallas, TX 75226. The public is invited.


The newly rebranded Dallas CreativeSpace (formerly Continental Gin Building Studios) has been home to some of Dallas’ most notable artists for more than 3 decades. Twice a year, the artists host their Open Studios event, which is arguably the best of its kind in the region. Bob Nunn, one of Dallas’ most well-known painters and art instructors, is one of the featured artists. Dallas CreativeSpace is a highly sought after work space by artists from across the country.


“Our Open Studios event is a rare look inside the personal studios of some of Dallas’ most notable artists. It’s a showcase for the many different kinds of innovative art that is produced in our own backyard in a building that is a Dallas Landmark. It’s truly a wonderful event for art enthusiasts, buyers, and designers,” said Andrew Kochie, a featured artist and one of the organizers of the event.

The event will feature street tacos by TheTacoDude on the loading dock as well as complimentary drinks served throughout the building.

Built in 1888, the Continental Gin Building was responsible for the manufacturing of cotton gins which were then distributed across the nation. In 1982 the building was converted into the artist studios that it is known for today. The hardwood floors and original architecture allow for inspiration and demonstrate the building’s industrial past. Home to 60+ artists, Dallas CreativeSpace is now prepared to host one of its largest events. For more information or sponsorship opportunities please visit http://dallascreativespace.com

Historic Continental Gin Building Opens Doors to Showcase the Work of 40+ Artists

The Continental Gin Building (CGB) will open its doors to the public Friday, November 6th from 6-10 pm and Saturday, November 7th from 2-8 pm for an open house showcasing the work of 44 diverse artists.
Guests are invited to enjoy abundant wine, treats, and live music by the Felix Flores Band.  The 127-year-old building is known as the oldest art community in Deep Ellum. For almost 30 years the CGB has been the home for a community of diversified artists including: craftsmen, film producers, painters, photographers, designers (clothing, accessories, interior), and more. It has grown to 65 tenants who create and collaborate within the historic walls. They are individual artists, under one roof, inspiring each other through an interactive community. 
About the CGB:
 For over two decades, artists have occupied the Continental Gin Building, making it one of the oldest creative communities in Dallas. At least twice a year, the studios are open to the public, each Fall and Spring. The Continental Gin Company was built in 1888 by Robert S. Munger, housed in a series of brick warehouses along Elm Street and Trunk Avenue. The company was closed in 1962, as Deep Ellum went through several transitions. In 1982, local real estate developer John Tatum purchased the property and spaces first began being rented to artists, thus establishing the Continental Gin Building as one of the oldest art communities in Dallas. It now houses a mix of accomplished professionals, soon-to-be-discovered and the as-yet undiscovered hopefuls, who are all diligently pursuing their talents whether that be apparel design, graphic design, photography, sculptures, film, painting, glasswork or more.
