Arrow Creative has a new home just off Central Avenue, which will serve as the hub for the Memphis creative community. With artist studios on site, shared equipment, co-working space, and classes year round, a visit to Arrow is sure to delight and inspire your inner creative. “A space like this is vital for creatives all over, but especially here in Memphis,” said Memphis jeweler of IV, David Quarrels, “We’re getting back to our roots, welcoming the resurgence of makers. So, a place to create, collaborate, and, of course, make money as an artist is something we’re all looking forward to. (Arrow) will help us all to continue to breed the atmosphere of community that our creatives need: that our city needs.” Meet the artists and watch them work, then purchase a piece from their studio to take home. Learn a new skill, utilize specialized equipment, or support the budding mini-maker with classes for kids, all in one location. With special events, artist chats, and multiple galleries with ever changing exhibitions, every visit to Arrow offers something new to appreciate, enjoy, observe or learn. Many makers in Memphis find themselves without the resources and space they need to create. Since our opening, we have worked to make Arrow a place for artists to grow as solo entrepreneurs in Memphis. Arrow provides, to the art enthusiast as well as the creative entrepreneur, equipment, classes, work space, gallery, exhibitions, creative studios, and a retail area to create a thriving center where art and business merge. Join our creative community and Keep Memphis Creative.
