In February 2005, I was juried into Artspace as an exhibiting artist. A few months later, I moved into the building. As a studio artist, Artspace has provided me a place to create, collaborate with other artists, and exhibit my work. I have been fortunate enough to participate in both the annual New Works Show and the biennial Fine Contemporary Crafts exhibition. More importantly, Artspace has given me the opportunity to participate in a number of community events, such as doing demonstrations for the Downtown Raleigh Business Alliance and the Fayetteville Street Paint Out, as well as participating in community activities. I have been proud to participate in Artspace's Process and Product Program, an integrated art experience for fifth graders, as both a teacher and tour guide.
I often say that Artspace is the center of the Downtown Raleigh arts scene, not just because its size or its location in the historic City Market, but also because of the way its outreach and educational programs extend far beyond the four walls of the building and into the community, inspiring creative energy by making the creative process accessible to the public. It is truly a special place.
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
...the ability to participate in a variety of community events and activities, including the Process and Product Tours, an arts program for fifth grade students.
