A home for contemporary artists, a hub for food access.
Easyside is an artist run nonprofit offering exhibitions and education across North Texas, food and resources to our East Fort Worth community, and workspaces for creating contemporary art.
Easyside was started in the spring of 2022 by artists Adrianna Touch, Fernando Alvarez, & Corrie Thompson, along with musician & entrepreneur John Paul Thompson. Adrianna, Fernando, & Corrie met in the MFA program at TCU, and the Thompsons have been East Fort Worth residents since 2018. Outside of our own creative practices, we bring together a wealth of experience, having worked with other nonprofits, galleries, institutions, and startups. Easyside is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
In the summer of 2023, we opened a multi-purpose facility featuring seven artist studios, a workshop, and gallery, along with space for food distribution. Our goal is to share this facility & our artists/members with the growers, markets, pantries, & mutual aid organizations working to address food insecurity in North Texas.
We are looking for community feedback, volunteers, organizational partners, & sponsors. We need your support to launch Easyside.
