First Friday-New Artists

Upstairs Studio is excited to introduce our 2 new Studio Artists.
Sioux Blackledge is a painter, her works are bold watermedia with subjects often related to indigenous peoples and spirituality in the natural world.  She has some striking pieces on display this month along with  prints, cards and jewelry.
Erin Osinkosky creates whimsical collage pieces and drawings. She incorporates many found items into her works. Many of her textures start with rubbings from surfaces she encounters on walks around town.She also utilizes reclaimed fabrics and found items in making  her unique puppets. She is showing collage pieces, drawings and puppets.
Stop by Upstairs Studio this First Friday and see them for yourself.  We also have works by our other studio artists which makes for a lot of creativity up the stairs.  Come on up!

What is Upstairs Studio?

Upstairs Studio is a group of working studios downtown Anchorage. We have 5 shared studios housing 10 resident artists. Our artists work in a variety of mediums, including fine art-oil, acrylic, watercolor, and encaustic, collage, puppet making, felting, fused glass, polymer clay and leather work.
 Our Gallery is adjacent to our Studios. We open our Gallery to the public during Anchorage's  First Friday Artwalk. The Gallery is a unique space where Art and Artisan works can be purchased directly from the Artist.

We are located upstairs at 406 G Street in downtown Anchorage.
