Adornments is looking to expand into The Loft at the Factory at Franklin

This space can be seen from the ground floor from many restaurants and shops and is directly across from the Southgate Gallery.  Our goal is to provide artists and craft artists with studio and retail space; providing the community with the opportunity to see artists at work and purchase artisan goods as well as a place for artists to work and sell their creations. We do want any artists who take a space there to actually be there regularly (not necessarily every day, but several days a week). In exchange for rent (price is based on the size of the studio space (5×5-10×10) that is desired ranging from $320 to $400 per month or more), we will provide the artists with the following:

1. Studio Space (artists will have access to their studio space 24 hours a day)

2. Advertisement in various publications (Tennessean, VIP Magazine, etc)

3. Advertisement on our website (

4. Retail opportunity- use of our credit card machine at no cost to the artist. (i.e. we will not take a commission for works that are sold by the artist whether the artist is present at the time of sale or not) The Loft will be open for business during regular store hours (most likely: Tuesday – Thursday 10am-5pm and Friday/Saturday 10am-6pm) and an Adornments staff member will be present to process any credit sales during those times (again at no cost to the artist).

In order to make this venture possible, we need at least four artists to commit to taking studio space there within the next month. If you are interested, please e-mail with The Loft in the subject heading. Tell us your medium, how much space you think you need, when you would want to move in and start working, and please include a couple pictures of your work if you can. We do want there to be a variety of different styles and media so our selections will be based on ability of the artist to create on site, quality of work and diversity of the space (i.e. we won’t pick all painters or all weavers).

We look forward to hearing from you!
