K Space Contemporary was established by key members of K Space Art Studios, a cooperative art studio formed in 1995 founded by Erick and Raychelle Schaudies. The “K” in our name refers to the building’s historic roots as the Kress Five & Dime store built in 1917.Take a look at our Corpus Christi trip builder app to schedule your visit to K Space Contemporary and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.
From it’s inception in 2001 to early 2007, the non-profit organization operated out of a 700 square foot gallery located within K Space Art Studios on the third floor of the building. After reorganizing in 2006, K Space Contemporary began plans to open a more accessible and visible community-based facility. The new street-level venue, K Space Contemporary, opened October 13, 2007.
K Space Contemporary is the oldest alternative art space in the Coastal Bend region. The primary goal of the organization is exhibiting emerging and mid-career artists from South Texas. K Space fills a void, not met by other local organizations, by providing a forum for under-represented artists whose works are experimental, non-commercial, or difficult to exhibit due to unusual installation requirements or site-specific ideas.
