Studio 111: your first look at the gallery side

Studio 111 is coming along! Between painting trim and windows, installing light fixtures, and handling other assorted prerequisites to set up my new creation space, settling in has been a slower process than I imagined. It seems all the slower when compared to how very quickly everything had flowed to get me to this location!

Here is your first look at the so-called gallery side of my space, where I will showcase completed, framed pieces. In this area, you can get a feel for what the artwork might look like in your home.

What you see on the wall to your left is just the start of what will ultimately be a salon-style installation – not my favorite style of art presentation to be certain, but a necessity in this studio.

As you can see, I had the electricians move the chandelier from the working side of the studio to the gallery side, and I think it looks quite stylish! This warmer light was not helpful among the cooler, daylight bulb shop lights, but by showcasing the fixture on the other side, it has become a real asset.

Next month, I’ll give you a peek at the working half of the space. I look forward to your seeing the new studio in person!

Things have been happening very quickly for me lately! After diving down Alice’s rabbit hole and following a proverbial trail of divine, gluten-free bread crumbs, what is the exciting end result?

I won’t keep you in suspense any longer: September 22nd will be my last day at my current downtown studio location. 

As of that date, I will be moving to a gorgeous new space that can only be called…well, sexy! Take a look at the photographs above, and you’ll see what I mean. And I will even have a lovely view of trees outside the windows, as opposed to my current view of a brick wall. The natural light in this space is phenomenal. 

Not much says “Amy Funderburk” more than that painted floor. Some splashes of my ubiquitous purple and some additional lighting, and I’ll be off to the races.  

For those of you who are familiar with Winston-Salem, my new studio will be located in the historic West End Mill Works community, in the cobalt blue building at 915 Bridge Street. I am delighted to be joining this thriving area, home to a variety of creatives and businesses, including The Breathing Room Yoga Studio and The Olio Glassblowing Studio.

Once I get settled in, I look forward to hosting some sort of Open “Studio Warming” Event to show off my new space. When you visit, you will find ample off-street parking here too, another asset of this move.

And if you don’t want to keep calling it Sexy, you can call it Studio 111.

Stay tuned to future newsletters for details!
