Lowe Mill Is A WonderlandSunday, February 12, 2012
My friend Conor O'Brien has a studio at Lowe Mill in Huntsville, which is basically a terrific, large mill/factory/whatever turned artist mecca, with dozens of studios (but not so big as to become crazy). It's open during certain days each week and it has a fantastic feel. Oh, and the elevators are the greatest, with someone there to run it for you. Love.
Nickel Cigar Box Guitars:
How can you not love a place called Beloved Community Books or Vertical House Records?
Other artists I really liked: Everett Cox who is a sculptor and has the bronze foundry, Gökden Alpman Matthews Art Studio (liked those pottery dresses, #3 of 7 in the online gallery), Green Pea Press (who also had work by my friends Amos P. Kennedy Jr and Glenn House Sr.), Guadalupe Robinson's pottery...
And how fantastic is Squeaking Tribe?!:
Conor O'Brien's workspace:
Loooove this piece he did...
Oh, and he likes the original Greenbriar Barbecue too. Extra points.
Cannot *wait* to come back here...
