A.P.E. Says Goodbye to Old Space

After 30 years, “Available Potential Enterprises”, more commonly known as A.P.E., is leaving its space on the top floor of the Thorne’s Marketplace in Northampton, Massachusetts. The arts organization provides performance space for artists, dancers, musicians and actors since it was founded in 1977 by Gordon Thorne. Thorne sold the marketplace in 2006, and had leased back A.P.E.’s third floor space. Now, the lease has expired, and he’s moving the organization almost next door. Thorne told WFCR’s Tina Antolini he’s excited about the potential for the new street level space, but the top floor of thorne’s was special.
