"This community space is the One I went for when seeking a great coworking environment of creatives. "

    February 2017

    In the heart of New York City's LES, this space is an affordable option to gain more experience, affordability, friendships warm as family and tools/ supplies to boot! I've loved being a part of the Collective, exhibiting alongside some of the long standing Members, newbies and supportive Staff since 2014. Openings and Closing parties get better with time, and it's free to the public. Aside from all of this, pick what you like to eat because it's surrounded by anything and everything, including some of the greatest clubs, bars and other entertainment. Did I say "in the heart" of the Lower East Side?! Thank you ConArtist!

    "There is no "con" in these artist!"

      July 2016

      I was in NYC looking for an artist to draw me of a sketch for my upcoming clothing line. I strolled pass Con Artist, walked in, and their staff treated me better than I ever been treated. They were warm, friendly and VERY eager to help me get my sketch drawn! I was contacted two days later and my drawings is now done, and it's flawless! The gallery is plenty spiffy too!

      1 Thank Naim

      "Great Resource, Location, and Family"

        July 2016

        Con is a great place to work; there are awesome amenities. From updating your portfolio and doing graphic design to working on oil paintings and graffiti, you can focus on any part of your artwork. On top of having a place to work, you have tons of opportunities to be in shows, pitch ideas and collaborate. Plus, the Con family is teaming with talented, enthusiastic and loyal friends.

        "A vibrant community of artists in the heart of Lower East Side"

          July 2016

          Con Artist Collective is a super ambitious project, and a gem for NYC artists. It's the perfect place for artists to make work and show it with other artists. It's very democratic, allowing plenty of room for everyone to experiment. To top it off, this great network of creatives is surrounded by galleries and restaurants on the Lower East Side.

          2 Thank Marianna

          "Highly Recommended!"

            July 2016

            This is an extraordinary shared space full of extraordinary people making extraordinary things. One day you'll be sitting next to a person making props for a movie, the next day a fine art printer, then someone who makes beautiful one of a kind shoes. Everyone is respectful of each other and the space, the staff are stellar--and the place just buzzes with creativity. It's definitely grungy so if you need a shiny new conference room to Impress corporate clients...this won't be for you. However, if you want to go-work whether it be art, start-up or anything else--you've absolutely got to check it out. There are also lots of little workshops and plenty of opportunities to show your work. HIGHLY recommended!

            "Insert all synonyms of awesome here "

              July 2016

              This is an excellent place to not only work and get your creative juices oozing but to socialize with some amazing people. The neighborhood is also excellent and never gets boring.

              "An Exciting Artist Hub With Endless Opportunities!"

                July 2016

                For someone who has both worked for, and been a member of Con Artist Collective, I have nothing but good things to say! The collective provides artists with so many opportunities... from access to a supportive local artist community, to the 2-a-month gallery shows open to all members, to their participation in various art fairs... you will feel at home here and shocked at the amount of exposure that your work can achieve. I moved to NYC from California knowing no one in the city and immediately got a job at Con Artist... and the experience has been nothing but welcoming, progressive, and exciting!

                2 Thank Carmen

                "Great space to work, collaborate, exhibit, and do."

                  July 2016

                  I love this place—not just a great place to work, but really cool people there all the time. Over the past 6+ years, ConArtist has really built a community of great artists and creators of every stripe. In addition to workspace and vibe, there're computers/scanners/printers, a rolling multi-purpose conference room (gotta see it), a wood shop, screen press, giant easels, art storage, and whatever else you might need. If you need to work quietly into the night or meet enthused and creative collaborators, this is the place. I can't recommend it highly enough :D

                  "No other place like it!"

                    July 2016

                    As a Member Artist of many years, I can honestly say it's been an amazing experience. The people, place and location are all outstanding. Possibilities of being in exhibitions often, are optimal. Including all the supplies and equipment we can use if ever needed, ConArtist feels to me like going home. Thanks a million ConArtist!!!
