WELCOME! 

The Yards Collective was created in 2011 as a collaborative art space founded by strong female identifying makers looking to offer a supportive artistic and inclusive space. With this central principle in mind, The Yards Collective now operates under a board of dedicated artists whose collective vision is to support a community of renters that share a high quality of craft, an inclusive outreach interest and a empathetic positive energy. Inclusivity of art based humans is a central component to our mission, we hope to engage emerging artists through exhibition, residency, public critiques and specialized classes. Regular programming includes first Friday exhibitions, bi-annual events, residency programs and craft sales; bringing many groups of aesthetic appreciators and makers together in one dynamic space. Our goal is provide the community with usable, affordable and accessible art space with a supportive network of makers engaged in developing connections within Rochester and beyond.

Come visit us during our Open Hours - 10am-2pm Every Saturday!
