Open Studios Walk All Over Waterloo says
Waterloo Arts supports artists at many levels. One aspect of this are the studios located upstairs from the gallery. These spaces serve a number of deeply committed artists providing room to give over to process, experimentation and exploration.

One of the studios is home to Loren Nagi’s “Art Lounge.” An alternative to traditional gallery space, the Lounge acts as a lab for artists to present work liberated from commercial concerns. As an artist in his own right, one of the fundamental drives of Nagi’s practice is to create opportunities to open art up for the public, and even more importantly, for other artists.

In this iteration Loren Nagi's Art Lounge will be hosting guest curator Douglas Max Utter. He is featuring artist Nico Pico Train with a show called: "Death and Gandma's Curtains and other works by Nico Pico Train."

The studios provide space to artists exploring through a broad spectrum of creative approaches including photography, video and painting. Among the artists with their doors open will be:

Loren Naji (Art Lounge)
Rachel Yurkovich
Katy Richards
Melissa Markwald
James Holloway
Lane Cooper
Bridget Caswell (Collinwood Camera Club work on display)

The back porch will be open, snacks provided and things will be somewhat tidied up. So take the opportunity to get a behind the scenes look at what some very interesting artists are up to.
