Munka Studio is opening next to Munka Coworking, a space that Lewiston mayor and businessman Carl Sheline said he hopes attracts artists and makers.

“I just feel like it would be a good fit for downtown Lewiston,” he said Tuesday. “We have dedicated space in a shared setting as well as private studios. How the gallery space will be used will be driven by the artists in the space. They will decide the exhibit themes and plan out a schedule that works for them.”

The former home of LA Arts at 221 Lisbon St. has brick a interior with a wide open space and a number of partial walls.

Fees will start at $400.

In six months, Sheline said he’d hope to find there “anything from painting and drawing to basket weaving and crafting.”

“We’re wrapping up construction now,” he said. “I hope we can be ready for our first member in a week or two.”
