Elizabeth and I are creating a new community for paper-based artists!! We've been day dreaming and planning and tweaking our idea in secret for a little over 2 months now. It all started on our trip to Philly. While we were there exploring artist studios and print collectives, we started making note of all the things the Philly art scene was doing that we wish we had here in Baltimore.
We liked their collaborative print studios, their studio buildings with common spaces and gallery spots too. And the buzz of creative juices melding together.
So, the first step was combining our studios together. We're starting to work collaboratively (keeping up our solo work too) and are reaching out to other printmakers, illustrators, and graphic artists in Baltimore. We are so excited!
Our studio is now the home base of Piccolo Studio, where we are starting a community for like-minded artists to come together to critique and share personal experiences.
On December 6th from 2–7pm we will be hosting an open house in the studio. I'll be doing press demos with Joe at 3 & 5 pm, and we will have some delicious goodies, and printy things too! Come say hi!
Piccolo Studio: 218 E Preston St, Baltimore MD 21202
