The M. Anderson Studio and Gallery is a new creative space in Wauwatosa, Wisconsin. The project is the brainchild of painter, Marc Anderson. His hope was to create a collaborative space for artists and collectors, alike. Our mission is to support fine artists and make their beautiful work accessible to art lovers. Apart from simply displaying fine art, we aim to educate through both conversation and our in-house classes.
