The origins of POP-UP 265 began during the ADA’s 2016 Raw Space Art Walk, which brought new vibrancy to Water St. The question arose: How do we bring more culture to Augusta on a smaller than shoestring budget?
The answers: creative problem solving, sweat equity and the willingness to try to address revitalization 250 sq. ft. at a time. The large windows and shallow depth of the space will allow viewers to enjoy the contemporary art 24/7 without the overhead expense of having a gallerist present.
At the end of three years, our run at 265 Water St. is up. It was a good run. There are still plenty of artists out there, and some of occupancies on Water Street. Keep your eyes open, because we might be popping up somewhere else soon.
