I have an announcement regarding my studio, Studio19. This morning I received an email about a sudden shift in studio management. I can’t go into details, but its’ causing a lot of people to move out of the community that I’m apart of. I will be staying for the year and then spend that time to create a new body of work and to figure out what to do next. Since I am transitioning with my contract position on top of a lot things that are up in the air right now, moving out of Cabot Street Studios is not an option unless I’m forced to and if management tries to pull shit on me then I’ll take legal action but I won’t go that route unless I have to. I am going to let the dust settle and see where things go. But for the most part I’ll be staying and my reception will still be on.
Why am I staying? I am staying to make art. And to express what I love to do. I didn’t join Cabot Street Studios because of a certain individual or to socialize. I joined because my artwork needs space for me to make more and that is why I am staying. To continue with my goal to make more artwork. Sure I’m disappointed that a bunch of people are deciding to pack up and leave – but that’s their decision and this is mine.
