It has been a long time coming. 4 years ago I sat looking out the window of my home, brand new baby asleep in my lap, and I envisioned a way to solve a problem I have had for a long time. How to combine the things that are important to me. My art practice and a creative, selfless, community centric project. My art practice is a solitary and fairly self centered act. It is my way of making, and I cannot and do not want to change that. My desire to be a part of a community, however, has grown over the years and as I look around me toward a world that is becoming more foreign to me, I require a place that feels hopeful, open, non-judgemental and encouraging for both myself and other newer, younger artists. Performers, musicians, artisans, artists, craftspeople, skilled laborers, I feel that we all get lost in a world where craft and creativity is being used to sell products, but not respected as professions. I want to change that, I want to make a place where people cherish individuality, yet know that they must work together in order to create a space that works for all, that gives back to the community, that provides a judgement free space for exchange of ideas, work, knowledge, craft and yes, I said it, love. I have worked so hard on this with my two amazing partners, Lily Lamberta and Julie Elkins, and want you to come and play.
