We have so many exciting things happening at the ARTspace this year – INCLUDING turning 5!!! The ARTspace was such a huge leap of faith, I’ve told you before that I was manifesting the old adage, “Leap and the net shall appear..” and by goodness we let alright! It’s been an incredible journey, and seen many of us through some of the darkest and brightest days. It’s as much of an honour now as it was then. The space, had really gone from strength to strength, and the friendships and memories are a’plenty!
Do you think it’s cause for a party? I’m thinking so…more soon xxx
Spring is here, the sky is blue…
Hopefully if I achieve nothing else today – it’s that you had a little laugh when you sung the next line in your head!
There’s a bit on this month, so I’ll do my best to keep it short and sweet. Here’s the run down, but there’s invitations and info. some attached with this email. and other online at both http://www.redolivestudios.com AND http://www.undergroundARTspace.com
*Disclaimer – we all know how hard I find it to keep things short, but A for effort, I really real try… x K

SO WHAT IS THE ARTSPACE?
Simply, a space for the ARTS. A destination/location/platform set up by Kere M Baker of Red Olive Studios (retail and design). In an effort to provide affordable Studio and Exhibition space, somewhere for local creatives to, well, create…the underground ARTspace was founded. Ten studio spaces, a Gallery/Function area, kitchen and bathroom backing on to a glorious backyard, the space has been mostly at capacity since it’s inception almost 4 years ago.
Our goals and plans include continuing to provide an inspiring space, educate and share creative tools, and host affordable Group and Solo shows for Artists. Further to this we are looking at hosting kids and Adults Creative classes, both with our own Artists network, and with others coming in to host their own – so there’ll be lots of opportunities and perspectives.
The new ARTspace website is moments away from launch, and includes a blog where all manner of Creative / Artistic topics are up for discussion, online shopping facilities from both our resident ARTspacers, and various trusted Artists within Australia and New Zealand. WATCH THIS (ART)SPACE!!!
