The conception for the Platform 13 Artist-in-Residence program began in the year 2013 when the replica L&PS Station was built housing Railway City Tourism. Fast forward to 2020 and seven Railway City Arts Crawl events later, and we feel a strong connection to our local arts and creative community. Having built the capacity to connect with artists, it was time to give an artist a dedicated space to exhibit, create and sell.
For anywhere from 1 month to 6 months, a different artist will exhibit in our little space on the platform and be profiled here on our website. Every artist will additionally be set up to sell online at our Arts Crawl Shop.
Our ultimate goal is to bring further awareness and support to our incredible local arts community.
