Studio Sunday - Water Street Gallery

Welcome to Studio Sunday!
I am hosting a Studio blog party every Sunday to encourage and share our creative gifts. 
Or just show off your studio and what inspires your creativity. 

This Sunday I am at Water Street Gallery here in Batavia IL. It is where I rent studio space along with 30 other artists. 
We donate our time to the gallery and share workshops. 
Today is my time to work so I thought I would take you on a tour...

 This is the art gallery. It has a juried show that lasts until mid May.

Today I had the pleasure of working with Leah, as you can see she is a talented artist. She works in oils and does amazing work. She is the mother of 2 children and has her studio space designed to bring her children in with her. They have a play loft and there creative space. I love that.

She has some workshops coming up and I plan on taking her portrait class in July. She also has a blog called On the Easel  please visit her to see more of her beautiful work.

Here are some of  the art pieces that I especially love.

These sculptures are made from driftwood and architectural remnants.

This wall art is made of book pages and wire... love the roots

This sculpture is made of coffee filters... interesting isn't it.

The gallery is open every weekend and second Saturday of the month features artists studios for tours. Fridays evenings there is usually music or movies. Check Here for schedules.

The H2O Gallery is our art for sale from resident artists and members.

Here is some of Leah's work for sale in the Gallery

and all are welcome here.

  4. Hi Rebecca,
    Thanks for sharing your studio with us! I loved looking at all the art work too! Wow! So much talent! I love that collage you are working on.Fabulous! What a great place to hang out!
    Blessings and have a wonderful SONday.

  5. SO much fun to see this studio space. I am jealous. ALthough I love my upstairs space there is laundry to do and dogs to let outside and dishes to wash.It would be nice to have fewer distractions and other artists to share ideas.

    Lucky you, and you deserve it.. : D

  9. Oh, Rebecca. I can see why you love that place! Do you feel a peace come over you when you enter the world with such creativeness? I felt it in your pictures. Truly love your personal space too. I really need to make some time for myself as I am feeling mighty taken advantage of these days. I need to feel that peace and let the creative juices flow. Thank you for the journey through your photos and the gentle reminder to find my space!

  10. Your studio is such an inspiration. I hope to have a larger space of my own one day; I'd love to be able to spread my wings. Thanks for sharing the other talented artists.
