In August 2014 my husband and I launched a new collaboration, Range Studio. Range Studio is a tiny art studio and artist residency program based in Oakland, CA. It aims to support artists’ creative work, foster partnerships across disciplines, and advocate for sustainable solutions for artists and the arts community. Range Studio prioritizes: short-term creative residencies for artists across disciplines; collaborations with institutions to create adaptable, site-specific public art programming; and acting as a platform for social action, community engagement, and social practice.
Range Studio creates an adaptable and agile solution to the shortage of affordable art spaces in urban areas. Range Studio is a tiny art studio and mobile space for artists residencies; a scalable and sustainable solution for arts programming; and a model for DIY green building for artists and institutions. Range Studio is interested in partnerships with arts and ecology institutions and collaborations with individual artists, writers, performers, designers, and other creatives concerned with social practice, community engagement, sustainability and the environment.
