Home sweet art gallery

Downtown GJ rooming house blends art with living space

The Front Porch Gallery, 339 Ute Ave., is a rooming house/art gallery that was the vision of co-owner Monica Atkinson as a way to provide an affordable place for artists to live and show their work.
Technically, an artist doesn’t have to live at The Front Porch to exhibit at the gallery and a tenant doesn’t have to be an artist to live there — Roth isn’t — but Atkinson wanted to offer a space where young or emerging artists at least had the option to do both under one roof with little worry about cost or rules.
