Powerhouse Arts (PHA) is a not-for-profit organization committed to creative expression.

committed to creative expression.

a factory for art & ideas

Powerhouse Arts is housed in a purpose-built facility in Gowanus, Brooklyn, on Lenape land. We host an extended network of art and fabrication professionals and educators who work together to co-create and share artistic practices vital to the wellbeing of artists and their communities.


Our in-house production facilities and expert fabrication teams help artists produce work in a safe environment, in a more cost effective and collaborative way than typical studio buildings can accommodate.

Community Ceramics Studio

Our ceramics membership program offers artists access to workspace, materials, equipment not accessible elsewhere, and professional assistance.

Community Engagement, Partnerships, and Events

We actively engage the imaginations of our neighbors in developing public programs that support the creative lives and vitality of our communities.


Space Hosting

We invite mission- and values-aligned artists and organizations to partner in activating the building, and our Private Event and Corporate Rental program supports our mission of fostering creative expression.

visit powerhouse arts

Powerhouse Arts welcomes visitors to the lobby of the building during our open hours. As we are a working fabrication facility and venue space, the rest of the building is open by invitation or through our scheduled tours programming.

This new program seeks to introduce collectors to a diverse range of artists and technical processes made possible through their collaboration with the PHA Printshop. Each artist will produce an edition of approximately 30-50 prints, ranging in price. Artists receive 50% of the proceeds, and PHA receives 50% which is redirected back into the Printshop.
