FRANK & VIRGINIA ROBERTS
Married in 2002, Frank and Virginia live in Central Gardens - a short drive from his family's business, Palladio Home and Garden. One of the businesses owned by Palladio is the Art Factory - a former office space converted to private art studios. Through on-going interactions with the local visual arts community, Frank became keenly aware of a lack of quality, creative space dedicated to Memphis' visual arts community.
In 2017 an old Quonset hut on Flicker Street became available, and through an exciting turn of events Frank and Virginia were able to acquire their first commercial property with the intention of implementing the lessons he had learned through Palladio and the Art Factory to create a quality, professional space for the visual arts in Memphis.
Frank and Virginia are placing a strong emphasis on customization of the Quonset Studios experience for each member. They want to provide more than "four walls and a roof" and supply each member with the space, utility, and support they need to succeed in their business goals.
