Benefit at Norton Factory Studios Saturday, September 21st

Added on by Lara Hoke.

My studio building, Norton Factory Studios, is holding a benefit and art auction next Saturday evening, September the 21st at 6 p.m.  We are raising money to help build out a 1,220 square foot space into a classroom. There will be live music, beverages, a silent auction of over 25 pieces of art made by Norton Factory artists and friends, as well as a bunch of raffle items donated by our favorite Bay Area restaurants and makers.

Join us!

Moving into a new studio!

Added on by Lara Hoke.

I am thrilled to be moving into my new studio next month at Norton Factory Studios.  The past several years I've been lucky enough to have space in our home to paint.  I'll miss the convenience of home, but won't miss some of the challenges (lighting, ventilation, cat hair...).  What I'm most excited about is the opportunity to be part of a community.  It is something I've missed dearly ever since I left Madarts Studios in Brooklyn five years ago.

It's hard to capture the beauty of the space.  It is airy and full of natural light.  Construction is not yet complete, but it will be ready for move-in on February 15th.

Gearing Up For Open Studios

What a difference a month makes! Norton Factory Studios has undergone a transformation in just a few short weeks. It's been fascinating to watch the space come together - the sheet rock is up, taped, and painted, bathrooms installed, doors cut, concrete poured.
