This is the general outline for the Southampton Art School Open Studio concept. We can accommodate approximately 15 core artists. The artists will have access to the Art School for a 6 month period. Starting November 1st until the end of April, the artists will have access to the School from 9:00am-9:00pm Monday to Sunday. We are looking for a commitment from the artists for the 6 month period. The cost to each artist will be approx. $60/month. (We do have a tenant in the apartment upstairs above the school so this is the reason for the proposed hours.)
We are looking for anyone who is interested to contact Joyce Carr, Sharon Barfoot or Jo Ann Sturgeon to let them know of their interest and then attend a meeting on November 1st at 10:00am to discuss the general guidelines as a group and to put down your payment on the studio space.
Things that may need to be discussed: what types of medium will be used in the space; whether to offer an open studio to emerging or other artists in the area one or two days a week.; where a small amount of supplies can be stored if left behind by artists, Insurance, etc.
This is an opportunity to have studio space that you can use at your convenience, paint with other artists for motivation and inspiration and be part of a core group of dedicated artists that are interested in gathering in a space with history and presence.
Please contact the committee members by email Joyce Carr, Sharon Barfoot or Jo Ann Sturgeon.
Watch to see what is happening for 2017. The catalogue and classes will be available by February1st.
