Seeking studio mate for fully equipped ceramics studio beginning September

I am seeing 1 or maybe 2 people to share a large (approx 700sq ft) ceramics studio space and equipment on the first floor of the Ant Farm Co-op Art Studio Building in Boylan Heights. Antfarm was started in 1993 by a group of NC State design school students who secured and renovated a 1925 warehouse in Raleigh’s historic Boylan Heights neighborhood. Today Antfarm is home to a diverse group of artists working in a variety of media. Over 40 artists and craftspeople have occupied Antfarm’s individual studios over the years.

The right studio mate will be: vaccinated, LGBTQ+ friendly, able to attend co-op meetings every few months, willing to pitch in with AntFarm chores like taking out the trash, etc.

This is a list of what will be available to you in our shared space:

-2 heavy duty Shimpo wheels and 1 Creative Industries pottery wheel
-2 wall extruders
-Slab roller
-Pug mill
-Electric kilns
- ~800+ pounds of high fire clay that needs to be reconstituted
-Every hand tool you could imagine
-Raku firing equipment
-Access to an off site gas kiln
-Huge library of books on techniques and glazing
-Enough dry materials to make buckets and buckets of glaze
-24 hour key access
-Automatic entry into the Boylan Heights Art Walk

Litmus Gallery & Studios bids everyone “Au Revoir” with one last exhibit of the art of our talented resident artists as we sadly close our gallery and studios at the end of July, 2021. 😢 Our “AU REVOIR” exhibit will open with a reception from 6-9 pm on First Friday, June 4 and will close on June 26. We wish to express a special ‘thank you’ to the many gifted artists who have shared their wonderful art with us by participating in our exhibits over the years, and an enthusiastic thanks to the many art lovers who have attended our exhibits. We hope many of you will be able to drop by for our opening reception so we can personally say goodbye, and maybe reminisce with us about previous good times spent at our gallery.

Sharing this upcoming opening, which will be online!

Truth to Power 8 opens August 6, 2020 at Power Plant Gallery at Duke University. The exhibit, at least initially, will be experienced through online formats, such as an online gallery guide, zoom talks, video and Instagram live due to the pandemic. In this year of 2020, as we face viruses of many kinds, the stunning and emotional works in the exhibit provide powerful commentary on our times, with a focus on structural racism’s impact on a personal and societal level. Thank you to the co-jurors Angel Dozier and Cor Art for their dedication, and for the 30 talented artists who created work that speaks Truth to Power.

**Happy to welcome our new member to this space**

Looking for a secluded and inexpensive place to make art? We're a co-op with 7-8 members, the space open, but easy to ventilate; and very hot in the summer, gas heat in winter. Water, sewer, trash/recycling, gas, electricity utilities included in rent. Dedicated parking lot close to downtown, grassy yard for spray painting, 24/hr access and best feature in an epidemic: we are not open to the public. Space measures 20'x11' with option to build/move walls, add a loft, etc. Message for tour and details. I guess, wear some kind of a mask so we don't infect each other. Or, we can do a facetime tour! This is not a great time, but maybe an artist out there needs to move to a more flexible or inexpensive space.

I forbindelse med sit besøg i Aarhus i tirsdags, lagde Ambassadør David Akov vejen forbi Tue Madsens Antfarm Studios i Ebeltoft, der i hele september måned lægger hus til det israelske metal-band SHREDHEADs studieindspilninger af deres næste album.

Med både lydprøver og en guidet tour gennem studiet og den tilhørende fantastiske have, er der ingen tvivl om, at bandet er i kyndige hænder.

God arbejdslyst til bandet og et stort held og lykke her fra. Vi glæder os til albumudgivelsen!

Vi ønsker vi alle en god weekend og Shabbat Shalom 🇩🇰🇮🇱

Tillsammans med Mighty Music bjuder vi i dag på premiären av Black Swamp Waters nya video "Showdown".

Låten kommer från den ännu obetitlade plattan som kommer till hösten och är inspelad av meriterade Tue Madsen på Antfarm Studios.
Let's kick of the weekend with the first single from southern rockers Black Swamp Water’s third album which will be released on Mighty Music in late 2020.

“Showdown” is an epic and classic heavy metal song with a soaring main riff that burns itself into your ear canal. Produced by Tue Madsen (Antfarm Studios).

Lead singer Bjørn Bølling Nyholm says: "In "Showdown", we've found a worthy successor to "Bitter Harvest" (1,5 million plays on Spotify in one and half years). It's gonna blast through the wall of sound".

Chronicle er det nyeste stjerneskud på den danske melodiske dødsmetal scene!

Med udgivelsen af deres kommende album "Demonology" på Mighty Music i 2020 er vejen lagt for de unge dødsmetallere!

"Demonology" er produceret af Tue Madsen i Antfarm Studios!
Chronicle sign with Mighty Music!

This is the new Danish guns of technical melodic death metal!

We are more than happy to announce that the new guns on the technical melodic death metal scene Chronicle has signed a record deal with Mighty Music.

We are blown away by the bands technicalities in such a young age and can't wait to release an album that is sure to kick some ass! For all fans of early Dark Tranquillity, early Children Of Bodom & The Black Dahlia Murder.

The band says:
"We signed a record deal!!!
It is with tremendous amounts of pleasure that we are finally able to unveil, that we have joined forces with the people of Mighty Music /Target Group, for the release of our next album!

We've always strived towards a high level of technicality and musicianship in the music we write, and "Demonology" represents to us a big step into a heavier and more extreme direction, while maintaining our brand of catchy Melodic Death Metal. We can't wait to share more info with you all in the coming months!"

The new album will be released in March of 2020 and will be entitled "Demonology".
Produced, Mixed and Mastered by Tue Madsen at Antfarm Studios and with artwork by the great Par Olofsson.

"Chronicle is a young band who took me completely by surprise. Very complex energetic deaththrash of sorts. Amazing players and really good songs." - Tue Madsen.
