About "Artists Spaces"


Kirk Waldroff sings the praises about living in the Mather Bldg.

The Posts’ Washington Express had a nice article about artist living spaces, featuring photos of painter Dana Ellyn‘s place
. Other artists are mentioned, including the glass school’s next-door neighbor, ceramic artist Margaret Boozer and the Washington Glass School’s own Kirk Waldroff.

“For Kirk Waldroff, 36, who lives at the other end of the third-floor Mather hallway from painter Ellyn, the built-in artist community was a huge draw.

“I knew living here would be a really big deal in terms of making connections,” says Waldroff, who was living with his parents previously. “It’s kind of the other side of the universe from living in your parents’ basement, in terms of getting into the art world.” His art has benefited, too: Thanks to help from a neighbor who runs the Washington Glass School, Waldroff introduced glass casting to his printmaking.”
