Artist Studios at Artspace Exhibition Opening

Most Artists “live their work,” but we all need balance in our lives—a LITTLE SPACE or separation between work and all the rest. An Artists’ studio is where the magic happens--the conjuring place for new Art. This Summer, the Shreveport Regional Arts Council (SRAC) has awarded six artists another opportunity to create their own studio space in artspace to create, work, demonstrate and SELL their art to the public.

featuring: John Daniel • Kirsi-Marja Hardy • Madeline Marak • Paige PowellSherry TamburoMike Torma
May 31 - August 11, 2018

Experience artists as they work in a collaborative, yet individual setting, in artspace to both demonstrate and experience how working in a downtown artist studio environment can be.
