I just got some beautiful land with an old barn on it that I'd like to convert into artist’s studio spaces and an exhibition gallery.
NEW GOAL! $30,000!
Wow! I can't believe the outpouring of support from everyone for this awesome project! Since you've all helped me reach my initial goal within a week, I'm going to up the ante. Renovation is not cheap and I'll need every penny to turn this terrific building into Ten Horse Art Space! Please spread the word and thanks!
What are you trying to do?
I've acquired this amazing old horse barn that I want to convert into artist’s studios and a gallery. The Hudson Valley in New York State has many artists, but it can be difficult for them to find space to create and exhibit art. I've always found collaboration to be an important part of being an artist (at least for me!). I love to view other people's art, watch how they work or simply exchange ideas. It seems that in the 21st century we spend too much of our time isolated and disengaged from one another. I want to create a place where people can come together to work, share and experience the world of art.
Where is this project taking place?
The horse barn is located on six acres of beautiful land in New Paltz, New York. The area is lush with vegetation and wildlife and has a meandering creek near the building (the perfect place for a sculpture garden!). Every time I walk the property and listen the birds and crickets and frogs I think to myself "I HAVE to share this with others." It’s the perfect environment for creative inspiration.
Who are you?
Although many people know me as an artist and a bookmaker, I come from a long line of carpenters and craftsmen. I love to build things with my hands, which is why I'm a pop-up book creator (and why some of the rewards are pop-ups!). I was raised in a construction and building environment and am more than qualified to oversee all details of this awesome project.
Where does my money go?
Every dollar contributed will go directly towards the renovation of the building into Ten Horse Art Space. $15,000 will most likely not be enough to accomplish all the work, so I have set this amount as a minimum in the hopes that even more will be raised.
What rewards are you offering?
To show my deep appreciation for your collaboration and contribution, I have lots of sweet rewards for you, pop-up cards, pop-up books, even some of the the Limited Editions of some of my best known pop-up books (which can fetch up to $500 on the collector's market). Since I used to be a print maker when I first started in publishing, I've created an original, limited edition, block print of the future Ten Horse Art Space. But best of all is a one-of-a-kind, can't-get-anywhere-else, hand made, limited edition pop-up of the future Ten Horse Art Space. What pop-up collection could be complete without that?!
