Tiny Roost Gallery

Roost Studios has created a fresh way to show, see, experience and interact with art outside the traditional gallery or museum model.

Roost worked with Ryan Solomons, a 3-D fabrication design artist to make the first Tiny Roost: Art on the Outside gallery to be installed at the entrance of the Gardiner Library in February of 2022.

 

Open call for art submissions. Roost Studios will award 4 artists a solo exhibition opportunity to create a month-long installation in the Tiny Roost Gallery "Art on the Outside". Get more information about the Roost Grant Awards and applying here.

 

The tiny gallery is a 24"x 36" moveable clear art gallery box that sits on a 36" high steel and wood base. It is weatherproof, powered by solar energy, and has both permanent and changeable signage, LED lighting and audio capability. It will house rotating exhibitions by various artists focusing on a variety of relevant themes. We are so excited to bring art outside for everyone to enjoy!
