When you need help, ask for money. When you need money, ask for help. Alfred Arts Studio at The West needs both. It is safe to say this past year has been a challenge for everyone. For the vacant space adjacent to our beloved coffee shop, the challenges can most clearly be solved through a call to our supportive Alfred community. Looking to transform The West into a ceramic studio, the overall goal is to serve the community and feed the needs of local artists. Visions of a communal studio, small local gallery, and rentable maker space, are in the works. Residency programs are also a possibility in the foreseeable future.
While the space remains under construction, this summer is prime time to evolve the studio. If you are interested in helping us in any capacity, please attend our virtual meeting on June 9, at 7:00pm via the QR code provided below. More information regarding the project will be shared during the meeting. Much of the equipment needed to make these dreams possible has yet to be acquired; however, a poor craftsman blames their tools. We have the tools -- the strength of a loving community. Let’s pull together to transform Alfred Arts Studio.
