If you are craving an artistic live/work experience and have an entrepreneurial spirit, I have a space for you to consider.
By now you’ve heard that I am taking a “Gap Year” in 2023 to take a much-need break, travel the world, spend more time with family and reassess what I’d like my art business to be and do moving forward.
Between now and 12/1/ 2022 I hope to manifest a purchaser for the building & contents so that someone can take over the shop, studio, workshop business, and furnished Loft apartment.
Although I will keep the Ephemera Paducah name and social media accounts attached to it, I would also be willing to include the website (the workshop functionality is not the easiest thing in the world to set-up) for the interested buyer as well as share my knowledge, processes and contacts for running the workshop business.
The building at 333 N. 9th Street in Paducah, Ky is @ 4700 s.f. & was built in 2007 during Paducah’s Artist Relocation Program. The original owners and I are the only folks who have owned it. It was built for this purpose – artist studio, retail, and living space — the lighting, ceiling heights, and functionality on both floors is amazing!
The first floor houses a large studio space, retail space, utility room, front and back doors, a half bath, and a small kitchen with a sink, microwave, and fridge. The back studio doors open to a paved patio enclosed by a wooden fence. The .24-acre lot also includes a gravel parking lot & storage shed behind the main building.
The Loft is an apartment that the original owners lived in until we purchased the building in 2013 which we furnished for AirBnB space a few years later.
