About the space: Originally built in 1957 to house the Carbondale Public Library and subsequently converted into a Christian Science Reading Room, 304 W Walnut St. is a wonderful example of mid-century modern architecture by architects Lee, Potter & Smith of Paducah, KY.
The renovated space showcases the original wooden ceiling and concrete floors and large glass windows allow natural light to flood the space, making it an ideal location for exhibiting and viewing artwork. The uninterrupted views from inside and the double entrances underscore the multidisciplinary nature of Artspace 304’s mission by extending the gallery beyond the interior of the building.
Artspace 304's Main Gallery space is a 5000-square-foot, multi-purpose community space capable of hosting private parties, receptions, meetings, retreats, concerts, alongside exhibitions spanning all art media, including 2D, 3D, digital, sound, and performance-based work.
Besides the main gallery space, the building houses the multi-functional Neil and Mary Ellen Dillard Media and Performance Gallery, equipped with an Epson ProL series laser projector and a wireless sound system specifically for theatrical, performance, lectures, and projected works. Our space at 304 Walnut St also houses Shop 304 where the public can browse the work of artists throughout the region and is equipped with a professional catering kitchen.
