First Look at the New Studio

November 8th, 2007 · No Comments · Writing



It’s a big space, 2800 sqft, and we’re sharing it with two other artists (both teach at RISD). Like many studios in the Providence area, it’s an old mill building that’s now multi-use industrial with artist studios thrown into the mix. This space has been in the artist studio rotation for who-knows-how long, so we’ve got the happy task of peeling back the layers of inherited materials and tools and dust and cobwebs to make a space that’s workable for this new crew of studio-mates. It’s already set up well, with a shared wood-shop and a shared open space for building larger projects or showing work for studio visits.

Since I took these pictures, Murray and I have pieced together a smaller work space for the two of us and have started to move in the boxes of studio gear that we’ve been edging around at home since we got our stuff off the moving truck.

What you’re not seeing here is a large loft space over the shop area, the kitchen area, and the individual studio spaces, as well as the view out the wall of windows, which captures a steep tree-covered sloping hill and the roof lines of the rest of this enormous complex.
