Last month some obviously drunk and confused person tagged our door. We don’t know wither is was some failed joke or a negative slur but it was really dumb and poorly executed. At the top left corner you can see they misspelled the word “red” and ended up crossing it out. Nice one. There was little to no skill in the can-handling and a weak letter style. They covered people’s artwork and they even sprayed out faces on a photo. Wow. What a jerk.
We don’t really get it. But it’s just paint and we got tons of that in our studio so it’s kinda funny. We figured out a cool way of using a milk crate as a stencil too! We’re very happy with the results.
We just want to point out that we have a non-discrimination policy and don’t tolerate any form of hate in our creative space! Thanks!

Vanessa Rieger from the White House Studio Project was asked to create tickets for tonight’s Trampoline Hall at the Garrison. She will also act as a liaison to help curate different artists from the White House to make unique “artist made” tickets every month for the lecture series. We are very excited about the White House Studios becoming involved with Trampoline Hall! Stay tuned for more info on upcoming Trampoline Halls (happens once a month).

The White House Studio Project is currently applying as a not for profit organization…. however we have always been not-for-profit as all the money we earn from events goes right back into the space! This keeps our rent affordable for us emerging artists who can’t afford the large rent increases around the city. Any profit we make goes into improving the space. Here’s what we’ve accomplished this summer:
This year we have built an extension to one of our main gallery walls, which is on hinges and casters! This way if we need extra space we can swing the wall out more. Also we built a movable wall partition with storage inside! With these two new walls it makes our gallery space more flexible and dynamic! We improved our wash out room and built more shelves in the storage area. The woodshop has been the most functional and organized it’s ever been!
Thanks to James Fowler, Vanessa Rieger, Ceilidh Stidwill and Vince Vining for all their hard work improving the space!
Also thanks to all of our supporters who come out to shows and make our project possible!
