Yosemite Studios Party Was Pure Creative Dynamite

By Alissa Walker Comment

It was kind of a religious experience we had Saturday, stepping into the shared studio space of so many artists we admire from afar. We were at Yosemite Studios, a former liquor store now inhabited by Mark Todd, Esther Pearl Watson, Saelee Oh, Seonna Hong, Carlos Ramos and Martha Rich. Right there in the thick of their work, it was kind of like we were poking into their brains or something. And what brains they were!
