Studio Spaces

Creative Workspaces and Home OfficesFor some reason, I just love to look at the studios and workspaces of artists, designers and other “creative” workers.

In part, I suppose there is a thought that one might get usable ideas form the way others have arranged their work area; but mostly I think it’s just curiosity and the vaguely inspirational nature of being around or in artists’ working areas.

Even art school studio and work spaces, which always seem to have a “same as it ever was” feeling to them, can feel inspirational, just because of the associations they have for those of us who attended classes at one time or another.

Parka Blogs, who I profiled here, has a post about Creative Workspaces and Home Offices, with links to a number of individual workspace articles from blogs (including Man Arenas, who I profiled here); as well as links to collections of workspace and studio photos on Flicker.

Some of them are: The Creative Workspace Pool, The Workspaces – No Computers Pool, The Art Studio Pool, The artist STUDIOS Pool, The Professional Creatives at Home Pool, and even The Inspiration Boards Pool, devoted to those collage-like amalgams of inspirational and reference images most of us have accumulating push pins above our drawing tables and computers somewhere.

    Hi,

    You might want to check out these two exhibits at Norman Rockwell Museum in Stockbridge:

    “Artists in Their Studios,” a collection of 75 photographs of American artists in their workspaces from the late 19th century to mid 20th. Runs through June 7.

    “A Day in the Life: Norman Rockwell’s Stockbridge Studio,” a reinterpretation of Rockwell’s studio that returns it to the year 1960, when he was at a pivotal point in his career. The reinstalled studio opens May 2.

    Cheers,
    Audrey
