The abrupt change in weather just before November was accompanied this year by an abrupt change in chapters for Atomic7 Studio. Immediately following the final two events of the season, Fall Art Tour Stop #29 and the 2nd annual Monster Bash at The Shed, the move to our new space at the former Blackhawk School began… but not before we made some great memories where it all started.
At our stop, #29 on the Fall Art Tour, we opened our workspace to visitors from near and far, and welcomed back most of the help that has made all of this possible for a bit of a final farewell. We set up our traveling graffiti wall, which is quickly becoming a crowd favorite, having now visited 4 locations! We were joined early Friday afternoon by a bus-load of AP art students from Jefferson High School, and they spent nearly an hour experimenting with different techniques and covering nearly every figure on the wall with something new and beautiful. The weather was perfect, traffic was heavy, and we were able to meet our goal for the event by Saturday afternoon, before rain fell on the parade on Sunday. Nevertheless, we appreciate the friends and buyers who braved the downpour to support us on the final day of the tour.
On Saturday, the 28th of October, we hung out at The Shed for the 2nd annual Monster Bash, a fundraiser to benefit the Spring Green Arts Coalition. Participants each created a monster that will be featured in Nick Ringelstetter’s next original painting, and donation levels coincide with a canvas print of the finished piece. This year, we raised just shy of $600 and thank 20 participants for joining us.
In addition, we are incredibly grateful for a recent donation of lumber from Cathy at SICO. We now have one room of our new space nearly ready for operations to resume. This move amplifies the capacity, potential, and overall freedom of the studio exponentially, and we all look forward to getting back to work. Team Atomic7 certainly won’t be hibernating this winter season.
