hello art friends, this is what's been in the works...
my husband, Mal, and I have purchased the building at 120 front street. it was most recently the New Heights Teen Center, just before that... New Outlook Teen Center, before that the 120 Deli and Market/Laundromat, and before that in the early 1900's Poggio's Market. I will elaborate on all of those at some point.... because the ties to community with this building mean a lot to us.
we have, with the help of MANY, turned the bottom floor and basement into an artists' collective of studios and work spaces. my studio is there. mal's computer business is there... and we have three fabulous artist friends who are moving in this January.... Deb Wheeler-Bean, Dawn Amey, and Gaby Grossman. there are 4 more studios available at this writing.
there is an application process for studio space... our goal with this adventure is to maintain a collaborative effort for all of our art businesses and MOST importantly to be a nurturing space for creative energy.
there will be a few shows a year. we will have gallery hours. we will have "salons" and demos and a podcast or two. there is parking, a kitchen, and a back yard..... we really look forward to sharing it with you.

thank you to all who have been so enthusiastic over the years... we look forward to making many memories with you in this new space. :-)
rose and mal
