History/Biography

Maggie Knox was founded in 2014 in Miami, Florida as a gallery, residency and studio incubator space with a focus on supporting emerging female artists. For three years, MK hosted several events, exhibitions, workshops and residencies annually, supporting and exhibiting over 20 artists. 

Maggie Knox is named after our founder's maternal grandmother Marge "Maggie" Knox, and Knox Western, our great-grandfather, grandfather, and uncle's air compressor manufacturing business based in Erie. 

In 2017, we moved our operations to Erie, PA, our founder's mother's hometown. We are happy to be producing and curating art events in partnership with PACA as we establish our own space and cultivate our community. 

Our mission has always been, and continues to be focused on building and growing a creative community. We are excited to offer creative workshops for children, exhibit local emerging and established artists, and sell artist goods. We plan to host national artists-in-residences as soon as it is safe to do so.
