Over the course of the past several months, I’ve been very fortunate to rent a studio space at the The Bright Blue Door. The Bright Blue Door offered me a wonderful opportunity to work in a spacious, bright and sunny shared studio space centrally located in midtown KW, right across the street from home. Working in a shared studio with other artists has been transformative for me.
Unfortunately, a few weeks ago I found out that the Bright Blue Door was moving to a different space to focus on their marketing activities and I would have to find studio space.
After an emotional rollercoaster ride, I have decided to team up with some of the artists from the studio. Together, we are thrilled to announce we are launching the KW Artists Co-op, a co-operative working studio located within the same space.
Our renters are all co-op members, with a share of the responsibiliy, steering and profits of our co-op studio. We have rearranged the space into fewer, larger rental spots surrounding a common lounge/library/meeting area. We are excited to be working together to promote the space, paint unique signage, source furniture and shared equipment and build a shared studio library.
Although at this time we are a working studio and do not organize shows or events as a co-op, we encourage members to hang their work up on the gallery walls and make use of our shared facilities for events and classes.
I am excited for this new adventure, and eager to meet more artists to join me on it 🙂
