Slate Takes Savannah
I am not sure if I have mentioned, but I share a collective studio space- Slate Studios- in Charleston with some pretty amazing ladies. Lulie Wallace, Teil Duncan, Blakely Little, Raven Roxanne and their teams are so impressive both in artistic talent and how they run their businesses. It has been so fun for me to work around all of these talented creatives. I may be the oldest bird in the coop, but I certainly love learning from these accomplished chicks.
After some really cute SCAD summer interns talked up the town, the Slate ladies decided to take a field trip to Savannah to check out SCAD and this beautiful city. I have been to Savannah very few times, and it had been many years since my last visit. It’s surprising to me what little connection Savannah and Charleston seem to have when they are so close together. So, after Lulie’s summer intern Libby talked about how we should come check out SCAD, we decided to hit the road.
What a treat it was for all of us to step out of the studio for a couple of days to get inspired. We contacted another former intern from SCAD who proved to be the highlight of our trip. Louisa was so lovely and kind and TALENTED. She showed us the painting and textile buildings, as well as some of her work. She also walked us around the city a bit and showed us her daily studies journal on the rooftop at dusk.
