The fusion of craft, community, and culture.
Atithi Studios invites everyone to meet our family! Each of the Atithi Artists possess their own strengths and styles in a unique way. This exhibition explores the range of our artists, with each participant showcasing work that represents their individual practice. Although they operate separately, this exhibition presents the Atithi Artists as one unit, drawing connections throughout the collective. We’re grateful for the variety this in-house community brings to the table, and hope to share the wealth of artistry with everyone!
Our family extends beyond the confines of our building. We’re also celebrating unity with Adda Coffee and Tea house, and Gluten-Free Goat, our sister companies. Though each group follows a different path, our pillars of operation remain the same throughout. Conversation, community, and connection are what drive us in our endeavors. Their framework was the blueprint for the core values of Atithi Studios. Together, we strive to encourage growth and appreciation for local living artists.
This celebration doesn’t end with the artists who work directly out of the studios, or the companies we work alongside with. We’re here to say thank you to every visitor, club member, facilitator, performer, caterer, partner, and neighbor that has engaged with us in our first year of operation. This is a celebration of you! And the way that our beautiful community has coalesced into Atithi Studios today. So come mix and mingle with us. Let’s talk about where we came from, and where we’re headed next. Get to know Atithi through the art of conversation, so we can grow together.
The exhibition features Atithi resident artists; Bethany Lyn, Claira Heitzenrater, Dodi Dean, Emily McGaughey, Giovanna Ferrari, Jacki Temple, Julia Toal, Michael Fratangelo, and Ravi Kamath.
During the opening night celebration, we have curated sounds brought to you by Wade Anthony and DJ Femi, a delicious selection of food by One Classy Cook, and a collaborative live painting project for all visitors to participate in!
