I’m Back! After nearly two years without a studio, I’m back in a new art community, with a new studio. You’ll find the backstory HERE.
Interesting coincidence, I found Art Works Downtown because when I was looking for a place to locate for Marin Open Studios in 1996, someone mentioned an art center on Fourth Street that visionary, Phyllis Thelen was creating. I ended up there 24 years until July 2020.
In the summer of 2021 I was coming out of Civid hibernation and realizing I needed to find a new art community. In September I went to the opening of Phyllis Thelen’s one woman show at Marin Museum of Contemporary Art. Seeing all the positive changes that had taken place in that building over the years since I had been there, by the time I left, I knew I wanted to be part of the MarinMOCA community.
It took half a year waiting in line for a studio and by early spring 2022, I had the keys to a wonderful studio with a real window in the 781 Building on the Marin Museum of Contemporary Art campus.
Wonderful lighting! I’ve already spent many happy hours working there at my workbench. I invite you to come see for yourself. Best time is the Second Weekend of Marin Open Studios – May 7 & 8 from 11 to 6.
Here is the sign that will be hanging right outside my studio door on the MarinMOCA campus. You’ll find me and several other artists with doors open at 781 Hamilton Parkway.
