A second chance at some fabulous (& affordable!) art

A lot of art flew off the walls on First Thursday, but the fifth annual 100 under $100 (plus the Sweet Suite 300) show will be up through the month. There is still a bunch of great work here looking for a home. We’ll be hosting a more intimate affair to give our friends in the arts, and of course our loyal fans, a chance to see the show in a more leisurely setting. With cocktails, naturally.

Wednesday, October 24

5-7 PM

Industry night at ’57 Biscayne

Artists from the studios, artists from the show (and the intersection set of the those two groups), will be on hand to hobnob and perhaps open a studio or two for a peek. When you get tired of the rarefied atmosphere up here on the arty second and third floors, you can descend via the secret stairwell for the grand opening of Bad Bishop Bar, our newest neighbor in the Good Arts Building.

Some happy collectors on opening night

Birds: can’t keep ’em in stock

This beauty by Seattle Sketcher Gabriel Campanario is still available.

As is this watercolor by Julie Kim

Opening night with artists Amy Nikaitani & Michelle Kumata

You can see this tin construction by Nia Michaels on the third floor.

100 under $100 and the Sweet Suite 300: October 4 Open House

Mark your calendars for the fifth—yes 5th!—annual 100 under $100 plus, to celebrate our recent expansion to the formerly corporate third floor, we’re also exhibiting an additional selection of works priced under $300. (On the third floor, Suite 300, get it?) As always, collectors get to take their art goodies off the wall and home that night. We’ll have over a hundred works of art priced to sell, by the artists of ’57 Biscayne and their guests, including drawings, tiny paintings, tintypes, photos, prints; collages of paper, reconstructed tin, fiber, and plenty of surprises by established and newer artists. Plus the debut of three new installations by resident artists Savina Mason and LinLin Mao, two floors of open studios, and live music by our favorite pianist and songster, Victor Janusz.

First Thursday, October 4, 2018

5:30-9 PM

Small private studio with sink

Our gorgeous, light-filled new third floor has just one space still available. All spaces are work-only, 24/7 access; rents include utilities, wifi, and use of shared kitchenette, bathroom, lobby, and display spaces.

Studio 311

A former kitchen, this space has a sink and loads of cupboards. The current kitchen sink could be replaced by something more industrial or specific to your medium. There is no window to the outside, but light filters in through the glass door, and there are lovely, spacious common areas in which to take breaks, including one with a gorgeous skylight. There is working HVAC, and the potential to add more robust ventilation if required. 175 square feet; $400/month

To make an appointment or ask a question, contact jane@janerichlovsky.com

The most adorable studio ever

UPDATE: Adorable goes fast. This space is rented.  To be informed of future openings, please join our mailing list (form on sidebar).

. . . is available September 1!

170-square foot L-shape, with variable ceiling height, operable south-facing windows, a transom for ventilation, fir floors, a combination of track and can lighting, and loads of charm. It was carved out of our lobby shortly after Good Arts bought the building, and it has its own separate entrance and a large window facing the stairwell, which gives it possibilities as a retail space as well as a workspace. It could be great for a jeweler or designer who works small, but the big wall is great for display or for working vertically. $425 monthly rent is inclusive of utilities. Contact Jane to find out more and take a tour.

Windows look onto Cherry Street. Yes, they open.

This is the view as you walk into the space. The tall pitched ceiling above you is the bottom of the staircase.

Cute built-in bench seat looks out the windows. (Could also be made into a desk or work table.)

View of Monkey Puzzle and other fab lobby art. Opportunities to add your own.

Stay at ’57 Biscayne!

The Salon Rue de Cerise is open for business! There is now a lovely little getaway for visitors to Pioneer Square, a private suite tucked in amongst working artists’ studios. It even has its own exclusive art show, of affordable works by local artists, hung salon style (natch). All the art, and even the lamps, are for sale via an easy secure webpage, accessible to guests.

Best of all, the proceeds from the rentals will help keep all the spaces at the Good Arts Building affordable to artists and other creative enterprises.

The name is an homage to 27 Rue de Fleurus, where Gertrude Stein collected art and artists, supporting as-yet-unknown painters and fostering conversations at her weekly salons.  We hope to inspire visitors to do the same.

WALL O’ ART!

Studio for rent

In addition to 311, available now, we also have a sweet space on the second floor coming up for rent September 1st.  Suite 204 consists of two adjoining rooms, which could be a great fit for someone who wants to separate the business from the messier, making aspects of their work. Or for two artists who want to share. It’s spacious (400 square feet total) with lovely windows and a utility sink right outside the door. The ceilings are about 12-1/2 feet tall and the floors are nice, worn, unpainted fir (which you are allowed to get paint on). Rent is $810 per month and includes utilities, NNN, wifi, and use of fabulous common areas.

For more info or to schedule an appointment, contact Jane.

Studio 311: Your new workshop, print shop, photo studio, maker space . . .

All spaces are work-only, 24/7 access; rents include utilities and use of shared kitchenette, bathroom, lobby, and display spaces. Oh, and membership in the single coolest artists’ community in the city.

Studio 311: 910 Sq Ft; $1950/mo. includes utilities

This large space would make a FABULOUS print studio, shared maker space, or classroom. It includes an adjacent kitchen area, which has plumbing & storage, and could be converted to a darkroom, wetroom, or a separate space. A huge skylight floods one corner with light all day long.  Plenty of power, including a 220v outlet.

“You Are Here, Too” and open house May 3!

First Thursday, May 3, 6-9 PM

In a city in which the ground has literally shifted several times over the past hundred years from seismic activity or, more dramatically, human intervention, and in which it continues to shift through highway projects and rampant development, maps provide a link to its history and a record of the layers underneath.

You Are Here Too, an exhibition of artists’ responses to maps and mapping, opens May 3, 2018, and continues through August 30, here at the Good Arts Building in Pioneer Square. The works will be spread between two galleries within the building: Good Arts Gallery, inside Cherry Street Coffee House at 700 First Avenue, and here at  ’57 Biscayne Artist Studios, directly above it at 110 Cherry Street on both the second and third floors. The opening reception coincides with our first building-wide open house. See the brand-spankin-new studios on the third floor, meet the excellent artists working in them, visit old favorites on the second floor and in the Arcade, and listen to live music in the second floor lobby by the always-fabulous pianist Victor Janusz.

Incorporating images, type, or constructs borrowed from maps, or the maps themselves, the artworks in the show explore the topography of the natural world, political boundaries, the built environment, slavery, motherhood, and other phenomena that leave traces. Artists working in diverse media—paintings, drawings, layered collages, embroidery, digital media, and ceramics—include David Francis, Nia Michaels, Dara Solliday, Joseph Pentheroudakis, Dawn Endean, Savina Mason, Morgan Cahn, Beverly Naidus, Elizabeth Arzani, Ann Marie Schneider, Hadar Iron, Lindsay Peyton, Warren Munzel, Marie Abando, Tara Kraft, and Karey Kessler.

Two studios for rent: available April 1

Just one studio in the new third floor expansion hasn’t yet been snatched up, and it’s a beauty. Studio 12 is 635 square feet,  in three sections, and will be available to rent April 1. The largest area is oblong and its entire ceiling consists of a stunning skylight that looks up to the gorgeous Hogue building next door and floods the space with light. There is a small adjacent nook with lots of power, including a 220 outlet; and an additional separate room with a door that has easy access to plumbing and could accommodate a sink. Rent is $1400, includes utilities.

It’s really tall.

Hurry! This guy is seriously considering it.

Also available April 1 is a lovely corner space with a west-facing window on the second floor. It’s 532 square feet, with nice wood floors and an exposed brick wall. Great for photography, but lots of other things as well. Rent is $1075, inclusive of utilities.

Studio 210

Utilities and wifi included. One-year lease. Work-only, no live-in.
OK to share w/landlord approval.

To see these studios, along with our gorgeous and practical common areas, please contact the proprietrix.
