Sandusky Studios Opening Reception

I am now managing the Sandusky Studios project in Salida, which was conceived in January during the Inaugural Exhibit featuring Jimmy Descants' sculptural installations and my pastels and oils. The building worked out really well for the showing and making of artwork and we had a lot of interest from artists in Salida to make it available for studio/gallery partners of Milagro Design, LLC in January, 2009, decided to use the Sandusky as an art incubator for Salida, Colorado. What once was the empty upstairs of the historic building now serves as a space allowing artists to pursue their creative ambitions in an energized community of like-minded spirits. The long hallway with it's room-sized skylight creates a natural gallery space available to artists for exhibitions, movie showings, classrooms, and community art events.

The project is going well...all 10 studio spaces have been rented out, and artists are busy making things, work is being created...there are paintings, and assemblages on display in the gallery, movies will be shown starting this Sunday, March 15th, by Matthew Lyons Clark..
I am teaching workshops and classes in my studio, and we are scheduling events now for the spring and summer.

We had a very well attended opening last Friday night and will be doing this on a regular keep tuned in for announcements and dates of happenings....
