Brick and Mortar: The New HQ !
Art Lives Studio has branched out to a new brick and mortar space in South Jersey's Cumberland County Glasstown Arts District. Now based out of Millville's new Creative Enterprise Center (CEC) located at 14 East Mulberry Street, which is part of The Holly City Development Corporation and the first of its kind facility in Cumberland County offering collaboration, co-working and studio space for small business development and entrepreneurship, Art Lives Studio is gearing up for the next level.
As one of the creative professionals and entrepreneurs occupying the four upstairs studios at CEC, there is now room to expand and innovate as well as to more deeply engage community arts. Since its inception, Art Lives Studio has been a home-based practice. With this move, the studio is even more focused and has gained the capacity to now offer workshops and classes locally, including arts integration and professional development programs through community partnerships, within the Creative Enterprise Center's downstairs class room / conference. Studio #1 @ CEC will now serve as headquarters and info center for all Art Lives Studio activities out in the field.
"A dedicated space is so crucial for serious work; not only physically but psychologically. The team at CEC has so warmly welcomed and encouraged me and through this facility has made possible a resource that allows for concentration and honing my craft as well as completing those projects that have been for so long on my mind and dominating my conversations. Now is the time to boldly manifest on all those ideas. CEC is an asset and I deeply appreciate that it's here. It’s exciting." ~ n
The official Open House is on Third Friday, April 20 @ 6-9pm located at 14 East Mulberry St.
Introducing and featuring works by the new studios now located at the Creative Enterprise Center, the public is welcomed to view and collect original works by Denise Powell of Beyoutiful Inspirations and Nadïne LaFond of Art Lives Studio. Refreshments provided by Wildflower Vegan Cafe.
