Natural Science: Habitat for Artists update

Flash cards synchronously found on the lawn of Spire Studios speak to
undercurrents touched on by HFA.


Recent addition: Simon Draper's own tarp draped space.

Here's a little peek into the goings on at the Habitat for Artists enclave at Spire Studios over the past couple of months. More HFA on maykr
Beth Wilson included HFA in her coverage of area art projects that examine issues of land use and real estate in her Lucid Dreaming piece from the June 08 issue of Chronogram. HFA was also included in Sharon Butler's June Brooklyn Rail article about the broadening utilization of alternatives to the romantized giant industrial artist loft studio. Sharon has been chronicling her studio experience in her habitat at her blog Two Coats of Paint.

Peeking through Marnie Hillsley's window.

Above and below: residue of recent time spent in my habitat.

An aspect of the habitats will be represented in
Windows On Main St, in the windows of Exit Drake Realty next month. The boundaries of HFA will be spreading as artists from the New Paltz area will be constructing additional habitats which will appear at COTA which will be happening in New Paltz on Sept. 27.
