When Photo Studio opens at the Museum of Art
Photo studio, a photo studio in Seattle, will open its first studio at the museum in mid-December.
Photo studio owner Lisa Gartman said the studio will offer more than a “photo booth” — it will offer a “gallery.”
Photo studio was founded in 2014 by Gartmiller.
The studio, which will open in late December, will be the first of its kind in the museum’s new galleries and will be home to more than 60 artists and photographers, Gartmans said in a statement.
“I can’t wait to get our hands on some of the artists that will be working in our new gallery space,” Gartmon said.
Gartman, who is also the founder of the Museum Photography and Film Program at the Seattle Center, said she is excited to be opening the studio, located at 1610 16th St. S., on a Friday and to be able to showcase her work on the walls.
She added that she hopes to attract more people to her studio, as she sees “a lot of new people” entering the photo studio scene.
One of the studio’s first exhibitions, “Toward the New Frontier: Modern Photography, Art, and Art History,” will be a series of installations by local and international artists.
Other upcoming exhibitions will include “The Artist in the Mirror: The Art of Peter Kropotkin,” and a project by the American-born artist Alex Katz, “An Act of Kindness: The Story of a Photographer and the World of Photography,” which will be part of the museum.
While there are no plans to create a full-time studio, Gannam said that she is “really excited” to open the studio.
And, she said, she hopes the gallery will help promote the gallery as well.
Photo studio is also opening a gallery in a new section of the new Museum of Photography and Archives in the Arts.
This is a big step for us, but we have to continue to take it to the next level, Gassmiller said.
“We want to make sure that our gallery is welcoming, beautiful and creative.”
