Building 30 West

Had a great time visiting the Building 30 West Artists in the heart of the Sand Point Naval Air Station Historic District. Their recently renovated building is home to studios for about 30 artists. Watch for their next open house – they do it about twice a year. I stuck my head in a bunch of studios and had many interesting and inspiring conversations. The photos below show Emiliya Lane, Heather Carr, Amália Couto, Sandra Power, and Marc Bohne.
