Where We Work: Art Studios in Quebec, New York, and Los Angeles

Dozens of artists find and share art studio spaces every week on Listings Project. These artists are the lifeblood of our communities, keeping us connected to and engaged with the things that matter most. In our Where We Work series, we showcase some of these art studios.

Marian Snow is a mixed media artist. She creates murals, traditional native crafts, drawings and other artworks out of her custom-built studio in the Mohawk territory of Kahnawake in Quebec.

"I custom built my studio space with a high lean-to ceiling so I can maximize my shelf space. I have magnetic strips on the wall to hold tools and scissors, and a massive filing cabinet to keep my projects and sketches flat. The space is set up for storing supplies and works in progress, but I also have a few work surfaces and a decent amount of floor space to build stuff. I installed great lighting and there’s room for a ventilation unit if I need one eventually. I wish I could have installed a sink! Oh well, it’s a thirty-second walk to the nearest washroom. 

When I go from medium to medium (for example: beading to clay) I have many cupboards and places to stash stuff so the dust doesn’t contaminate my fabrics. My mini shop vac helps control the dust, too! 

I have a fridge for when I’m entertaining or living in my studio for hours on end, and there is a bottle of red wine hidden behind a cabinet (don’t tell anyone). My speakers are set up for music and I have a television, too, but I haven’t used it yet. I find that music is enough." — Marian Snow

A Weaver’s Studio in New York City

Morgan Hale is an artist and weaver working out of her studio space in Queens. You can also find her on Instagram.

"My studio is in my railroad-style apartment, in a space that connects two rooms, so it has to function as a hallway too. I’ve tried to make this space blend cohesively with the rest of my home since the rooms flow together. Sometimes my work spreads to other parts of my apartment, like my kitchen or a desk in my bedroom, but everything ends up back in this spot where the weaving happens.

The loom is the focal point of my studio, taking up most of my small space. Finding room for a five-foot-wide floor loom has been a big factor anytime I’ve moved. Storage is also essential; around my loom I have space for yarn, materials and other tools. On the walls are weavings that I created along with more art and vintage weaving tools. My cat also loves to nap on my loom bench anytime she can steal it." — Morgan Hale
