Garage on York to Celebrate Grand Opening in Newport


A new business opening in Newport is designed to accommodate photo and video shoots, as well as commercial productions.

Garage on York is a two-story, 3,000-sq. ft. rentable space at 706 York Street.

Ron and Monica Pies, owners of studio821, a customizable studio space, and Laura Chenault, founder of the former Pallet 23, which offered similar services, teamed up to launch Garage on York.

A grand opening and ribbon-cutting ceremony is set for Friday at 5:30 p.m.

“We were looking to add to the variety of professional studios we already offer," Ron Pies said. "We found the right property and by adding Laura, a veteran producer with an established clientele list to the mix, we are better positioned to meet the needs and demands of creative agencies and production companies in the region. We have been thrilled by the response & bookings already while operating by word of mouth the past few months.” 

The space can be rented by the full or half day.
