If you aren’t following our building on Galleries at 140, you need to, as we are getting ready for a night of incredible art, live music, demonstrations, and light refreshments. Book your babysitters now for a date night on 7/16 from 5-9!

Some of you have seen Kate’s beautiful encaustic pieces in the gallery. On gallery night she will be in the studio with MORE work, plus showing us her process! I am SO excited. I have been to her studio and encaustic painting is simply fascinating. You will love watching her work, she is easy to talk to, and just a beautiful soul!

Cant wait to see her work at Gallery Night!

Kate Huser Santucci lives and works in Dayton, Ohio. She graduated from Wright State University in 1994 with a BFA in visual art with a concentration in sculpture. She recently completed a residency in encaustic painting with artist Patricia Seggebruch, and was a 2020 recipient of a Montgomery County Arts and Cultural District and Culture Works Artist Opportunity Grant, which allowed her to take classes in advanced encaustic painting techniques with artist Alicia Tormey.
Her work has most recently been shown at the 3060 Gallery in Columbus Ohio, the Main Branch of the Dayton Metro Library, Dayton Society of Artists Project Space, and the Dutoit Gallery in Dayton, Ohio. Public work includes a mural in downtown Dayton on E. 3rd St., and a series of 3 pieces for the new Southeast Branch of the Dayton Metro Library. Her works are part of private collections in Dayton OH, Cincinnati OH, Los Angeles CA, St. Joseph MI, Brooklyn NY, and Lexington KY.

In the gallery, the popular prints of “Constitution Falling” and other Americana pieces are available for 15% off. Stop in and see us!

That’s a wrap! We were missing sweet Christopher due to holiday travel, but the week wrapped up with more creative fun and a wonderful art show! The kids learned so much about different artists and styles of art (quote of the day from Sophia: “Frida has a unibrow!”). Their pieces were all so unique and wonderful. Thank you to everyone who participated. We look forward to creating with you again soon! Remember to looking up and keep chasing light!

Most of the kids recognized what this painting was based on...and ALMOST got the artists name right. It was fun watching their excitement as they started to recognize the buildings- especially one extra special house.

Such a special day! Animals in Art History had a moment of modern art inspiration. How many people can say they met both the artist AND the subject? Thank you @a.s.murrill_artist_carpenter for taking time out of your busy day to answer the kids questions on how you created this wonderful painting. Thank you to Officer Wilson for bringing Blue. Now taking this inspiration back to the studio for paintings! @city_of_springboro

Another fun day in the studio! The kids learned a couple of different methods of printmaking and created pictures inspired by the work of Matisse. Erica has such creative projects- they did awesome!

I can’t reveal what just sold, because it is a surprise gift, but I am incredibly excited for both the artist and the receiver. One of my favorite parts to my job is connecting people to art and to one another. Knowing the story behind this piece and the story of the receiver- it is art destiny- and I love it! ❤️

Stepping through Art History this week, starting with cave paintings. Perfect quote to kick off your Monday comes from Christopher: “Mine is looking SO old it looks like it’s from the EIGHTIES!” 🤣😊

Last week was a break between sessions, but there was still fun in the studio! We had fun painting llamas for a sweet 10th birthday party. The smiles and laughter brought lots of light. The timing was right to deliver “The Messenger” to it’s special owners in Indiana. I’m going to miss having an angel in the studio, but as with most paintings, he looks better in a home! Looking forward to welcoming some new artists this week for another round of workshops and classes! Have a beautiful Sunday!

8 Father-Daughter Artist Duos Who Share a Creative Bond

Happy Father’s Day to all you dad’s out there. Even if you don’t have “a creative bone in your body” (as I often hear at the studio), your child will never forget your encouragement of their creative endeavors. Thank you!

My heart is full from all the creative light happening in the studio last week! Submarine Studio was 4 days of BIG fun. In between were classes, both private, group, and family. Thursday was hopping all day, topped by the fun Girls night Out event and the honor of receiving an award from the city. Friday Open Studio brings me so much joy to see women filling up their creative cup. They understand how the process of creating is so good for the soul! Saturday I loved seeing downtown filled with smiles during the Juneteenth event and enjoyed meeting so many new people. Thank you to those who stopped in this week and supported local artists.

Another shoutout to Erica Eyre, whose talent blessed our workshop this week as well as the Juneteenth Celebration. If you are interested in prints of “Blessed Trinity,” they are available at the gallery and the Historical Society Museum.

What a wonderful week it has been! Miss Erica and I had so much fun sharing our love of art with these creative kiddos. My favorite quote when setting up for the art show: “Best day ever!”

Honored to be recognized at the Springboro City Council meeting for painting the “rugs” down Main Street with these two wonderful artists. I wish the two student artists could have made it, but they were on vacation.

Extended hours today! We will be open 10-9 today. The studio is hopping with workshops and lessons, then this evening is girls night out. Sunday is Father’s day and we have 15% off unique gifts for dad. Or consider getting him a gift certificate for a daddy and me art date. It is going to be a beautiful evening to shop on Main Street!

A Little About Me...

I’ve been an artist my whole life, but didn’t really understand what that meant until after my kids were born. You see, even though I went to college for fine arts, then worked in graphic design for years, it wasn’t until I stopped creating (because I was busy with young children) that I realized I was denying part of who I am. So I happily started creating again, with photography, drawing and painting. I truly believe we are all designed to create in some way. Art is a healthy outlet that is so good for the soul!

I’ve been an educator for almost 20 years, first with natural childbirth classes, homeschooling, then in recent years, at the Dayton Art Institute, Middletown Arts Center, and private lessons. I love people of all ages and I aim to meet my students where they’re at in their artistic journey. My goal is for learning to be a fun discovery!

The arts bring communities together in such a beautiful way and I am honored to be part of the Springboro Arts Council as well as ARTfest on Main. I am looking forward to meeting you and creating with you soon!
