Gray Studio -- St. John, KS

Gray Studio is a 501c3 in St. John, KS. This facility is intended to promote the arts in our area.

Since the labor is volunteer there are no costs but the volunteers are only here for a short time, with two only available until mid-August.  If allowed, we would like to be ready for visitors by then.  

The issues Gray Studio will be addressing in our community are: 

  • Population decline - The residence in the building will serve as housing for a resident artist who will live, work and teach in the building. 
  • Historical preservation - Gray Studio is on the state and national historical registries.  It is a rare structure.
  • Quality of life -  The large studio space will be used for art classes and projects.
  • Retail - There will be an entrepreneurial emphasis for artists.
