Realize Studio buildout

$2,170 of $5,000 goal

Raised by 27 people in 45 months
I have finally secured a studio with the space need to set up a woodworking shop, metal and bricolage area, drawing, painting, designing space, an extensive library and a fantastic area to lounge, drink, chat and watch the river. I am fundraising to finish the buildout, walls, taping, painting, plumbing, ventilation and few tool puchases. In a few short weeks I hope to have a public and open studio where people can come, take classes, colaborate on projects and make things together. Help me make this a reality.

It is difficult for me to ask for help, but after a few years filled with sickness, death, loss of work, house and studio my financial resources have been more than depeted. Now with a place to work, a place where I can teach and collaborate and build, I hope to regrow my self and return to creating, teaching and making. And I want others to be able to share it with me.

One of the great things about the studio is the space under the Lowry Avenue Bridge. My colleague Patricia and I have been laying out a 66 foot labyrinth in preparation for Open Streets Minneapolis this Sunday. We will be installing it in the intersection of Central Ave. and 20th St. Come and say hi and walk the path. It is a Chartres derived stellated triskaidecagon generated pattern. Way mathy. Way fun.

Just finished meeting with the lovely Rebecca Aylesworth, who will bring a bit (no, a lot) of class and a tasty cocktail to the event. This should be fun.

I am holding a starving artist sale with the fancy ass name "Evidence of Ephemera" on August 6th at 7:00 at 1358 Summit, Saint Paul. Cocktails, snacks, very cool people and real live art, made by me. From tiny sketches to sofa size. Friend me on facebook to learn more.
