In 2001, Spacetaker.org began with a simple idea: provide a place on the web for Houston artists and organizations to promote their work. Since its inception, Spacetaker has grown into a dynamic, multifaceted organization dedicated to equipping local artists to succeed in the business of art.
Most notably, Spacetaker opened the Artists Resource Center or ARC in 2008—envisioned as a haven for local artists to gather. It continues to evolve as a workshop classroom, exhibition space, technology lab, and complement to Spacetaker’s presence on the web.
In the fall of 2009, Spacetaker launched the latest manifestation of Spacetaker.org with an updated look and expanded capabilities. The new site gives artists and organizations control over their web portfolios, so the Artists Registry is always up to date. Artists can now upload their upcoming events and sell their pieces at the ecommerce shop. The new Field Guide provides and extensive database of tools, materials, and services. And, the popular Culture Guide has been expanded and reorganized to bring audiences the finest art events Houston has to offer.
The launch of the site begins a new chapter in Spacetaker’s exciting history. The organization is focused on keeping Houston artists and the businesses who support them on the cutting edge of economic, educational, and networking opportunities.
