Within the studio are several different sized studio spaces, the sized of the space you are given is dependent on how much rent you pay, bigger size= more rent. They have a common room area but also an exhibition room the artist can use for free when wanted. This gives them great opportunity to hold exhibitions and to see how their work look together.
Business Cards And Exhibition Leaflets From The Studio:
My Visit To StudionAme
After a volunteering session I was invited to see the studio by practicing artist Emmer Peers, on the Sunday after I went to visit the studio. This was a great experience as we got to look around each of the artists areas, their works and thoughts. While looking around the studios I was able to see work in progress, finished works and even machines that help the artists.
These are photos I took through the studio, this was great inspiration both professionally and contextually. Looking around the studio it gave great example of how they live and help each others art.
Artists We Spoke To
While at the studio I talked to 3 artists being Emmer Peers, Jack Casey and another I can not remember the name of. Once we had looked around we where able to talk to them about any recommendation they have for us to be able to become artist. Jack Casey was really helpful within a professional light, due to explaining to us his journey from becoming part time artist with a job, into a full time artist.
Talking to Emma I found out that there are grants artist can apply for to help them produce their work, from looking i have found one that could be useful within my future projects. The link below is a website from the Leicester Art And Museum Gallery, where they have information about how to get grants and about different grants that are possible to get.
To be able to talk professionally to the artists was a really important step, this gave me a really strong insight to understand the next moves I will need to make after I leave DMU. Where if I do not have a studio at home I should look for one. I am fortunate enough to be able to create a studio at home ( I am currently in progress of this). I feel this has been one of the most beneficial experiences I have had this year.
