Stepping into an artist’s studio can be like walking along the shoreline. Always interesting, there is the sense of passing through a potential treasure trove of discarded or unfinished pieces, past efforts, current ideas and experiments. Occasionally one comes upon a brilliant, exceptional thing of beauty. Similarly, the developmentof an artistic practice takes place over a mysterious ebb and flow of vision and technical discoveries, something that can often only be understood over time. The work presented here reflects a selection of works by artists at Akin’s Lakeshore studio; works-in-progress, old pieces,
and new explorations. With the goal of building community relationships and highlighting the voices of artists living outside thedowntown core, this group exhibition shares recent work from the artists working in our Akin studios at 2970 Lakeshore Blvd West.
