The FAC Artist Studios & Gallery at 1-11 North Market Street provides a fully integrated space for artists to create, show their work, and build community.
Located in an early 20th-century bank, it also builds on the richness of Frederick’s history in the very heart of downtown. Offering the best of elegant historic detail and modern conveniences — such as an elevator, new HVAC system, and LED lighting in the Studios — it demonstrates Frederick’s and FAC’s commitment to providing the best for local arts.
The Studios are outfitted to house over 30 artists in creative spaces, and also offers additional amenities such as a kitchenette and classroom. The Gallery space displays the work of the Studio artists on a rotating basis, and also will be home to rotating contemporary exhibits, always offering plenty to see and a diverse array of creativity to the Frederick community and our visitors alike.
The Frederick Arts Council invests in a vibrant and cohesive arts community for the people of Frederick County. The organization fosters an environment where the arts flourish in the community through grants and scholarships, arts advocacy, and links to essential resources. FAC is responsible for large-scale programming such as the Frederick Festival of the Arts, Sky Stage, Frederick Public Art Initiative, Art in the Park, and Arts in Education grants.
