STUDIOHOUSE is designed for self-directed artists.

Whatever we were doing that was creative and right, functioned to hold us from going over the edge.” - Audre Lorde

The mission of STUDIOHOUSE is to be a dynamic incubator for artists to live, work and grow. The project provides studio space, housing, time to focus on personal research, and the opportunity to participate in intermittent professional gatherings. Studio check-ins occur periodically during scheduled visits with curators, contributors, and flourishing artists in the field. There are no required studio hours. An artist's time is their own.

STUDIOHOUSE is an artist-operated project that emerged in December 2021 post a move to Baltimore by lead artist Mahari Chabwera. The House welcomed its first resident in February 2022. Since then the space has hosted over a dozen residents, numerous visiting artists and curators, and collaborated with several artists and art spaces to produce public programs. 

STUDIOHOUSE is for artists committed to mutuality. The house is open throughout the year with a pause in programming November through January. A rotating group of artists are in residence at any time. Length of stays range from 2 weeks, to 1, 3, or 6 months, with a maximum stay of a year after a 3 month review. The project is situated in a  4-story corner row home in East Baltimore, Maryland across from Lake Montebello. The bottom 2 floors operate as studio space, and the top 2 floors are private artist apartments complete with 2 bedrooms, a single bathroom, kitchenette, balcony and laundry. 

STUDIOHOUSE honors an artist's individual intuition on how to best cultivate themselves. Each resident has the opportunity to focus on their personal creative maturation, as well as participate in intermittent house gatherings, and professional development opportunities. Seasonal programs take place in the Spring, Summer and Fall. Most are free and open to the public. 


STUDIOHOUSE is partially subsidized by Changrong Ji, a Maryland based Investor hacking code at the intersection of AI, blockchain, metaverse and social commerce ecosystems. The project has received support from The Peale's Grit Fund, Maryland State Arts Council's Creativity Grant and The Contemporary Arts Network.
