Gage is pleased to announce an expansion of its operations to a new studio school at the Equinox Studios (6520 5th Ave S. 98108) in the historic Georgetown neighborhood in South Seattle.

This new, versatile 2000 sf space, Gage South, houses a variety of year-round studio programs in painting, drawing and sculpture. Gage South programs will include the exceptional Contemporary Painting Atelier with Kim Trowbridge; the new Core Drawing Atelier with Geoff Flack; The Georgetown Full-Time Atelier & Part-Time Programsas well as specialty workshops, classes and Teen Programs.


Gage South offers beautiful shared studio and teaching spaces within the vibrant Equinox Studio arts community, a sprawling, energetic industrial arts community that features fine and heavy arts studio space that is home to scores of fabricators, artists, artisans and now teaching artists. The original “Big Blue” warehouse contains 36 studios and shops with over 50 tenants in blacksmithing, metal sculpture, painting, ceramics, woodwork, leatherwork, glass and photography. Gage is excited to join this innovative enclave, dedicated to supporting and sustaining people and their art through creativity, collaboration and community.

Located on 5th Avenue South just off Michigan Avenue South, Equinox Studio was founded in 2006 as an consortium of artists and artisans in a rehabbed World War II era factory building in the quirky, alternative Georgetown neighborhood of Seattle. Now expanded to three converted warehouse spaces, Equinox has transformed the faded buildings back to their original beauty of timber, post and beam architecture, exposed wood floors, ceilings and beams.

The first Equinox Studio was the original home of the company that invented Norton Bomb Sights (the “crosshairs” that bombardiers would look through to zero in on their targets), and later the home of Mastermark Printing and Engraving.  Gage South is located in the old McKinnon Furniture Warehouse, and is truly excited about being part of this vital collective that is growing and collaborating to create inspiring work and engage the public, allowing them to come and experience the arts in the place where they are made.

We are excited to share this news with the Gage community! Stay tuned for more details about our grand opening and reception!
