“The Studios and Shared Gallery were first offered to tenant artists in the summer of 2020 and our proudest accomplishment is that we seized this opportunity and made it work, despite various restrictions and bottlenecks.

“We probably couldn’t have picked a worse year to start, but we had a lot of interested visitors. It was totally worth it and we are looking forward to a busy spring and summer!
