Open Studios tomorrow 12p - 3p! (Saturday 10/30)

Today we met with the two artists who will be holding open studios in conjunction with The State of Matter glass exhibition tomorrow. And as always, Jim Hazel of HazelGlas and Margot Gotoff of Gotoff Studios were great fun …plus, both were excited to be opening their studios up to the public. So tomorrow, in our last day of programming, please stop by HazelGlas (4150 Hamilton Ave) and Gotoff Studios (1546 Knowlton Ave) from 12p - 3p to get a rare glimpse into two established artists' studios. Margot will be showing her unique techniques of transforming clay sculptures into glass, while Jim Hazel will be demonstrating his extremely specialized capabilities in glass blowing and lathe-working. All three of our other venues will be open from 10a - 4p as well …and following, will be our final flame-working demonstration by Michael Goodman at Prairie (4035 Hamilton Ave -- above Take the Cake). Addresses and our schedule can be found here . And a short cam-phone-video-clip of some

Our journey continues with an image.

Images from The Northside House

The initial success of The Northside House, our eclectic gallery space, which was nestled comfortably in the Northside community of Cincinnati is one of the main reasons we stay motivated to push on. We understand our value as a group and now know we have the talents to pull off great events that not only support the arts, but support ideas of community through creative outreach. Below is a slideshow containing images from our inaugural event. Articles that were written about The Northside House can also be found at: + (via City Beat) + (via Soap Box Media)
