JAMESTOWN – Progress to create a new art studio on the Jamestown Riverwalk is taking a step forward.

Local leaders with the City of Jamestown announced Friday they, along with the Resource Center, received a $195,000 grant from Empire State Development.

The money will be allocated to help build the Edgewater Art House project. Located on Eighth Street near McCrea Point Park, the facility aims to help connect those with disabilities to art.

Re-purposing a storage garage, the indoor and outdoor art studio will also be open to the public.

Classes would include activities like painting and drawing. There would also be a gallery space to showcase art.

Groundbreaking could take place as soon as this spring.
