I am the current Art Director and one of the original artists at Jupiter Studios the center of the Downtown Alliance Arts District. Six months ago, owner Richie Kindler asked me if I would like to take over management of Jupiter Studios, knowing how much I have always loved this historic gallery space. I would like to transform Jupiter Studios into an Arts Incubator Space that focuses on innovation and acts as a centralized creative space for all Ohio artists to create and exhibit. I want to offer our community a full-service venue that makes a multidisciplinary arts experience accessible to Alliance and Northeast Ohio in a supportive uncensored creative environment that puts the needs of the artist first and teaches them the art of business. Over my 20 years in the arts world I have seen many artists be taken advantage of because of the gap between the artists and the administrators. I have seen our work be censored, stolen, controlled, violated, corrupted and more in the art world, 'crimes' against creativity. I hope to bridge the gap between the artists and the administrators by teaching artists the art of business and putting artists in charge of the art world again.
As a disabled artist, mother and ten-year community volunteer it’s very difficult to pursue your dreams in small town Ohio. I suffered a stroke three years ago in addition to my heart condition, Crohns Disease, Fibromyalgia, RA and a list of chronic illnesses. Overcoming great obstacles is part of my daily life just as it is for any upcoming entrepreneur. A survivor by nature and a dedicated artist I started exhibiting my artwork at age 11. I continue to exhibit across the US from NYC to California my artwork and activism can be seen in museums, bars, coffee shops and galleries across the country. My dedication to the arts scene lets me meet so many amazing artists and people and I strive to bring them all together here in Alliance Ohio.
My multidisciplinary artwork is known to speak on social and political issues and push innovative use of color into vivid symbolic imagery. Although I have never won any juried awards in my over 20 years of exhibiting, my work and dedication are well respected by artists across the US. I attended The Art Institute of Art at 17 for Special FX and am currently pursuing a degree in Marketing with a double major in Grant Writing. I am a three-time past grantee of the Ohio Arts Council Disability Access Grant and a past Lippman Kanfer grant recipient. My artwork was recently on show at The Columbus Museum of Contemporary Art’s premier event Art of Recovery and is seen in events both large and small. As a curator I aim to bring innovative artists from not only Ohio but across the US to Alliance as part of multidisciplinary art experiences.
I have dedicated my life to the arts and hope to use the remainder of my days to revitalize the downtown Alliance Arts District, what I consider my home arts district.
The people of Alliance have stolen a part of my heart, from the homeless lady in the alley to the lawyer across the street, Jupiter Studios has been an important catalyst for the people of this community and offers accessibility to the arts.
I am asking all of us to come together to help save Jupiter Studios for the artists and keep this amazing creative space in full artist control. I hope that you can help me Save Jupiter Studios for the Artists and transform this beautiful historic building into a Multidisciplinary Arts Innovation Incubator, an artist’s Co-Op studio space known as The Interstellar Workshop, The Kosmic Kitchen Incubator Space, The Nebula Stage, and The Mystic Chrystal Gallery. I am asking the community to help me turn this beautiful building into the Arts Complex it has the potential to become, under control of the artists.
I am requesting the public's help to rent Jupiter Studios and transform it into Jupiter Studios Innovation and Culinary Arts Complex. I will need a cushion and start-up costs while I restructure and promote Jupiter Studios, The Center of Innovation and Accessibility in the Ohio Arts Scene. As a disabled mother with big ideas it’s not an easy task to take on revitalizing an arts district and restructuring a business, but this is my destiny and when destiny knocks, you answer the door ready to fight. I am a warrior for the artists, I aim to put the creative needs of the artist first. I am a survivor and I want to see Jupiter Studios survive. I hope I can crowdfund $10,000 to help create an artist co-op and save Jupiter Studios, with the help of an entire community. Together we can paint the beautiful picture I see before me and revitalize this dead-end main street with the future of innovation and art. Jupiter Studios is the future of Alliance and you can help me paint this beautiful canvas and lead the areas most cutting edge artists toward revitalization of an entire community. Together we can Save Jupiter Studios for The Artists and for our city.
