Marcus Rich, owner of Art Factory, has gone full circle starting at UNCW as a marine biology major, venturing into a variety of side trips as a researcher, educator, exhibit designer, importer and is now immersed in the arts. Rich decided to open up Art Factory in 2012 when there was an acute shortage of studio work space for artists in downtown Wilmington. The gallery is filled with local and African art that Rich collected throughout the years. Art Factory also offers a 40 seat theater/screening room upstairs that they make available to community organizations for a modest charge. Three years ago, Rich, put in a wine bar that helped drive many customers in. Make sure to stop by the Art Factory and try their new ‘Art of the Vine’ wine!
