A space for art making, exhibitions, workshops and more


Have an idea for an art workshop, artist talk, performance, exhibition or other project but need a venue? Contact me with a proposal! Portmanteau is available free of cost for art related activities and community building projects.


Location & Facilities

First floor of the B-C hallway at Front Street Studios 1001 E. Second St. Dayton Ohio 45402.

The space is two stories but the main project area is on the first floor and is handicapped accessible.

The space has a large basin sink.



The project space is self-funded by me, Carrie Chema, to encourage and support art initiatives in whatever small way that I can. While it is free to use the space, donations of any size are greatly appreciated and go directly towards the studio operations.
