I moved in to Studio 203 at 450 Harrison Avenue very recently – on May 1 – so I am just starting my second month here. My furnishings are still a little bare bones but I’ve moved a lot of my supplies and furniture in and actually managed to do a little work here already. I’m still figuring out how to best use the space, so it may see some changes as my work habits take shape here.
I’m really pleased to now be included in the SoWa Artists Guild’s directory (top left on their page).
The SOWA Artists Guild at 450 Harrison Avenue is a non-profit association of professional studio artists. From their website: “The Guild’s purpose is to promote the diversity and individuality of the artists working in this flagship space, the center of the SOWA Art District.”
There are about 70 artist studios in this building, with mediums that include drawing, fiber arts, mixed media, painting, sculpture, photography, printmaking, installation and jewelry.
The first Friday of every month, from 5-9 pm, 450 Harrison Avenue artists open their studio doors to the public. Unfortunately, I can’t be here on Friday nights (my studio mate, jewelry maker Barbara Goldberg is likely to have the studio open, however), but I’m usually here 1-5 pm on Sundays. You can come to this art + design district for SoWa Sundays and make a whole day of visiting the outdoor art and craftspersons’ tents, the farmers’ market, vintage market, food trucks, and of course the artist studios inside 450 Harrison Avenue. And not only does our building have artists – it has bathrooms! These Sunday events run from May-October, they are free and parking is available.
