Good News!

By Arthur of Arthur Halvorsen Ceramics

As you may or may not know, I make my work at Mudflat Studios in Somerville. You may or may not know as well that we are renovating the old Somerville Theatre that is closer to Sullivan Square. (You can check out the progress down at the new building HERE) Well I put out my application in hopes of getting a space at the new building. The running joke has been that in order to get a studio space at Mudflat someone has to die because there are studio artists there that have been there since 1985 and that is the year that I was born in!

Well I am THRILLED to announce that my application was accepted the other day and I am going to be sharing a studio with three other women! I am PSYCHED! I can't wait to have my own space, and I'm also excited to see how my work changes if at all in the new space. Very exciting time in my professional career. Attached are some photos of the progress down at the new building.

This is the outside of the *NEW* Mudflat with new colors!

This is looking towards the Multi-Purpose room before the walls went up.

And the cardboard mock up of what the building will look like after the scaffolding comes down.

Well I hope that many of you are able to come out and see the new building at our Spring Show and Sale. I'll be posting more blog posts about what is happening down at Mudflat, and what progress I have made in prep for the studio... just today I went to IKEA to measure and look at shelving units! I can;t wait... can you tell??
