We want to create a place where artists can explore, innovate, collaborate and provide increased opportunities to showcase results.
The WEDGE is the legacy of John Payne, sculptor, inventor, engineer. Although no longer with us in the flesh, John’s vision continues to inspire an entire generation of artists a visitors alike. John was always the first to help artists by giving them space to live and work, and by creating a community in which to flourish.
