We’ve received an update on AlterWork, a new shared space for artists, founded by local businesswoman and restaurant owner Tina Stipanovic, who you likely know from her delicious work at RAR Bar. In fact, AlterWork is just up the street from the restaurant, at 30-09 35th Avenue. It will open officially in October 2017, and is currently renting out private studio spaces and looking for monthly members for its shared studio space.

AlterWork considers itself to be “the first and only multi-disciplinary artist studio space in Long Island City.” More about AlterWork from Tina, who herself is an artist (MFA, Parsons School of Design), curator for the Kaufman Arts District, and creator of the District’s Backlot Art Festival:

“AlterWork Studio is a brand new shared community workspace available to artists of every skill level and offering tools, resources and inspiration in multiple art disciplines. AlterWork Studios will have tools for printmaking, screen-printing, painting, potters wheels and kilns as well as a multitude of small tools, machines and some materials available to its members for a flat monthly membership fee. Members will also enjoy free wi-fi, a gallery space and a soon-to-be-added woodshop and dust room.”

Along with providing a great place for independent artist to work, they will offer workshops and classes (open to both members and non-members alike) interested in learning a new skill.

We are big supporters of Tina and her work at RAR Bar and we wish her only the best with AlterWork!
