I feel like I've won the artistic lottery this week. Finding out just last Friday that a studio space had opened up at the Emy Frentz Arts Guild, I inquired as if throwing a "hail mary". Little did I know that within 72 hours of that first contact I would have the key in my hand and a name plate on my door. The only requirement was to pass the artistic interview (which Axel did most of the talking) and to sign a ridiculously short leasing contract. When I asked about the casual nature of the contract she simply replied, "you're artists, what harm can you do?"
The building itself is an old stone church, nestled in perennial gardens, the sanctuary has been divided into several artist studios and also a gallery. The studio that I am blessed to call mine is even more spectacular because it sits atop a private staircase and contains the most beautiful stained glass window. Literally a crown jewel.
I come into this space with no particular goals, no expectations, really just trying to let be what will be here. There is a corner where Axel can relax, plenty of room for sewing, writing or just playing around with fibers, and it even has a bathroom (or as I call it, a water source for wet felting). Wonderful energy here, peace and quiet, and most importantly, a community of people who share my passion for shedding new and mo light to our time here on earth.
Certainly more to come on my celestial studio, but for now a few preliminary snap shots.
