Today I'm excited to bring you photos and info about the Grand Opening we had a few weeks ago! Our amazing intern Jenny took all of the photos and wrote the following post. Enjoy!
Jenny the intern here. A few weeks ago the '57 Biscayne residents opened their doors to the public for the first time. It was quite the party, with lots of wine, cheese, friends, and Carmelita (our landlady and fellow studio-mate's dog).
While guests were checking out the studio, Sara was multitasking like a boss, answering everyone's questions about Constellation & Co. and printing special keepsakes for them to take home. She had multiple presses running, printing two different colors on each chipboard keepsake.
We were also selling some limited edition posters, which were reprints of our Northwest-themed posters on vintage maps of Washington. They're incredibly beautiful and we still have a few left if you're interested.
Since I'm only in the studio once or twice a week, it's rare for me to run into the other '57 Biscayne artists. The Open House was a real treat for me to get to meet and talk to our studio neighbors. There are painters, jewelry makers, print makers, photographers, videographers, and book designers. If you're ever in the neighborhood, drop in and have yourself a little look-see. For now, more photos from the Open House:
...and last but not least, Sara "perched atop her old favorite girl." (in reference to this photo, taken at the old studio.)
If you want to hear more from me (Jenny), you can check out the blog I've been updating throughout my internship here.
And if you missed the Grand Opening, don't despair! '57 Biscayne will be open to the public tonight (December 1st) and Sunday (December 4th) for a Holiday Open House! For more information, visit '57 Biscayne online.
