Five Points Gallery opens Torrington incubator space 

Five Points Gallery opened a new initiative, the Incubator Space, on March 15.

The 470-square-foot studio was developed to accommodate emerging artists by allowing them to rent space at an affordable rate.

“We are excited to offer another opportunity which enriches, educates and inspires the artistic lifestyle of a talented and diverse community,” Judith McElhone, the gallery’s founding executive director, said in a release. “As we add another layer to the arts and culture community of downtown Torrington, our hope is that the enthusiasm will spread and encourage the repurposing of other spaces for the arts.”

The Incubator Space is at 5 Water St., directly above Five Points Gallery. The space is currently occupied by three local artists. A waiting list has been started for other artists who may be interested when space is available.
