"My New Studio in Seattle"
When I was attending school in Chicago I thought about establishing my first public studio/gallery space. When I returned to Seattle last summer, I was very fortunate to find a space in the old Rainier Brewery complex south of the city center. It was a blank canvas. I love blank canvases.
How do I want the space to look? What kind of lighting do I want? Do I want to have a comfortable seating area, a conference area? How many people can comfortably fit into the space? These are easy questions to ask of a client, but for me I had to recall the old adage from my school days: Keep it Simple.
My space planning is simple and works for multi-purposes. It's a work studio, a gallery, a think tank, a gathering spot, a community center and a very cool space to relax.
This is the new Joey M. Robinson Studio. I'll be sharing photographs of my works in progress at the studio as they happen. Stay tuned!
