Founded by artists Sean Hennessey and David Mordini, Otis Street Arts Project, LLC prepares for the move into the studio spaces adjacent to the Washington Glass Studio. As Margaret Boozer’s Red Dirt Studios relocates to the renovated Firehouse, Sean and David prepare the space for their new studio venture.
Otis Street Arts Project is a Center for Material Studies located within the “Artists by the Tracks” section of the Gateway Arts District. Otis Street Arts Project offers 12 studio spaces for artists working in a variety of media. There will be space for small and experimental exhibition, performances, guest artist presentations, and group discussions. Otis St artists currently include noted DC area artists including: Sean Hennessey, David Mordini, Matthew Duffy, Alma Sellmovic, Gloria Chapa, and Hebron Chism.
Said director Sean Hennessey: “Many of the artists here choose to work on the boundaries of their mediums by exploring sculpture, video, performance, and installation as part of their practice. Experimenting with materials and methods is encouraged as our artists develop their creative practices.”
The studio is being readied for artists to move in during the month of April, with a grand opening of the studio scheduled to be part of the Gateway Arts District’s May Open Studios on May 9th, 2015. Otis Street Arts Project still has space available for artists – email Otisstreetartsproject@gmail.com for more information.
