We’ll kick it off with an opening Friday, August 16 from 6 to 9 pm. Studio members and online members will exhibit works they’ve created together. If you’ve ever wondered how writers and painters might pull off a project, you’re not alone. They did too. And they decided to find out. Come see what happened!

Please join us on September 14th from 7-9:30pm for another installment of Flour City Readings!

Save the date! September 14 is our next Flour City Readings at The Yards. We're calling our September event "Further Fringe." An homage to the great arts festival, our rapidly rocketing series is flying alongside the Fringe mother ship this year. If you're looking for something that's just as fringe-y but isn't on the festival calendar (yet), come to Flour City Readings.

The curated series offers audiences the chance to hear top writers from Rochester and beyond. This bi-monthly series, hosted by Yards members Jennifer Kircher Carr and Geoff Graser, features a blend of literary genres and diverse voices. The setting in the gallery at The Yards Art Collective in the Rochester Public Market provides a unique backdrop in a creative space.

Stay tuned for our September lineup coming soon. Spoiler Alert: It's awesome!
