      K Space Art Studios 25th Anniversary Celebration

      K Space Contemporary is excited to announce the 25th Anniversary Celebration of K Space Art Studios, a thriving cooperative workspace for artists influential in the Corpus Christi art community. In addition to the exhibition featuring works of art by past and present K Space studio artists, the celebration includes a 25-day Art Challenge on Instagram, virtual programming, a solo exhibition by co-founder Raychelle Schaudies, and an historical exhibit of photos, news clippings and video documentation.

      K Space Art Studios was established in November 1995 by Erick and Raychelle Schaudies in the third floor warehouse of the former Kress Five & Dime Store. In addition to offering affordable studio rentals, K Space Art Studios has presented numerous exhibitions and community events, and led the way in creating a bustling art scene in downtown Corpus Christi. Realizing the need for a contemporary art center in the Coastal Bend, the studio artists established K Space Contemporary, which is now a key non-profit arts organization.

      K Space Art Studios, housing 12-18 artists at a time, serves as an incubator where artists improve their skills, learn exhibition promotion, curating and installation, and collaborate on projects. Many former and current studio artists have become prominent artists, educators, curators and gallery/art museum professionals. Their successes are part of K Space Art Studios’ legacy. This celebration highlights their talent and achievements as well as their contributions to the Corpus Christi community.

      K Space Art Studios is proud to count so many esteemed artists as former and current members. Artists participating in the 25th Anniversary Show (at printing) include:
      Tony Armadillo, Cheryl Votzmeyer, Loring Baker, Ericha Kemm, Ricardo Ruiz, Andy Niemann, Cristina White-Jones, Nola Guajardo, Debra Williams, Nora Verdin, Mayra Zamora, Payton Koranek, Carmen Ruiz, Ashley Thomas, Caroline Kuepper, Andrea Valenti, Rachel Payne, Greg Reuter, Jenna Muscarella, Lori Edwards, Diana Byers, Cynthia Alvarez, Tiffany Anderson, Courtney Bracco Bruun, Jimmy Pena, Raychelle Schaudies, Michelle Smythe, Day Wheeler, Gerald Lopez, Elena Rodriguez, Maricela Sanchez, Marie Valdez, Lars Roeder, Clay Reuter, Julia Dixon, Deborah Fullerton, Alex Chapa, Eric Cuevas, Catey Arnold, Criselda Saenz, Megan Benavides, Jorge Alegria.

      The exhibitions along with artist interviews and a video about the studios’ history will also be available virtually on www.kspacecontemporary.org, social media (@kspacecontemporary) and the “K Space Arts” channel on YouTube. The 25-Day Art Challenge will run @KSpaceArtLab on Instagram November 29 through December 22 with tutorials by K Space studio artists.
