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.
