Founded in 2021, STUDIOHOUSE offers a communal live + work space to artists from the U.S. and abroad to deepen and develop their artistic practice. Operating as a residency, the house provides studio space and the opportunity to connect with Baltimore's creative sector to self-directed individuals eager to evolve their creative ideas on their own timetable. There are no required studio hours. Check-ins occur during scheduled visits with distinguished visiting artists, curators and contributors.

STUDIOHOUSE is an artist-run residency in a 4-story, corner row home in Baltimore, Maryland. While in residence, artists have the space to focus on artistic research, exploration, and creation while also engaging with Baltimore’s creative sector.

STUDIOHOUSE is open throughout the year with a pause in programming November through December. The house is able to host up to 6 artists-in residence with length of stays ranging from 2 weeks, to 2, 3, or 6 months, with a maximum length of stay of a year. The interior of the house is an unfolding, fluid curation by Mahari Kathleen Chabwera, filled with artworks from her collection and contributions from artists in residence. The outside of the house features a mural by Dathan Kane, 3 balconies, a front porch, and fenced in backyard. 

STUDIOHOUSE emerged in December 2021 post a move to Baltimore from Virginia by founding director Mahari Kathleen Chabwera. In February 2022 the house welcomed its first artist, and since then has hosted close to a dozen residents, numerous visiting artists and curators, and several public programs. The project received early support from The Contemporary Arts Network. 

STUDIOHOUSE is currently supported and partially subsidized by Changrong Ji, a Maryland based Investor hacking code at the intersection of AI, blockchain, metaverse and social commerce ecosystems.

 STUDIOHOUSE is operated in collaboration with AI creator and Investor Changrong Ji.  STUDIOHOUSE residents are given the opportunity to work collaboratively in a 4,400 sq. ft. home, carving out a studio space to serve their practice. Everyone has access to their own private bedroom, shared bathroom, shared living room, kitchen, balcony, front patio, and fenced in backyard.

Throughout their time in The house, artists receive studio visits from curators, collectors, art advisors, and flourishing artists in the field. Artists have the opportunity to participate in seasonal photoshoots, artist talks, workshops and a yearly group exhibition. Additionally there are optional group field trips to museums, galleries, beaches, farmers markets, yoga studios, and thrift stores.
