The newest addition to Artlandish Gallery’s network of art studios is Eco Chic Studio.
Run by Jennie Graham-Henderson, the studio offers eco-friendly art projects such as lightbulb terrariums and repurposed jewelry as well as guest workshops and open studio classes. Columbians can also rent the space for private events with the added perk of recyclable and biodegradable tableware; what’s better than enjoying yourself without feeling guilty about the cleanup?
The studio features a gallery area of home decor and accessories made from recycled materials and a workshop space. The studio is outfitted with repurposed and upcycled materials, including the shelves made from wood pallets, used tables, spray-painted folding chairs and juice bottle lighting.
Eco Chic Studio will have its grand opening at Artrageous Friday from 6 to 9 p.m. on April 19. Enjoy food, drinks, innovative art and music from local band Hennessy Brothers. Open Studio begins April 23 and the first group workshop, tie dye thigh-high stockings with Tie Dye Queen, is April 27.
