Hello friends!

 
It’s been a while! We hope you and your loved ones are staying safe and healthy.

We’ve been hustling to keep LABspace going as a functioning IRL artist-run space... and it’s working!

Thanks to your generous support, we are able to keep our physical space for the foreseeable future, which is a HUGE accomplishment in these uncertain times.

We are blown away by your collective kindness. Dozens of unsolicited artwork donations have flooded in, and we are also selling work at our usual (or a slightly reduced) commission, which helps LABspace AND the artists we love. Many of you have collected work from us during this time and we are so grateful.

We are dreaming up new ways to exhibit artists, and for you to see inspiring artwork safely from home, and safely at LABspace.

Detailed below are 4 ways you can help keep LABspace going. We will continue doing everything we can to support this thriving community that we have all created together.

Sending love to you and yours.

Thank you, friends!

Four ways to support LABspace ❤️

1. Space Case is still on view! We have successfully made arrangements for visitors to see the show safely and privately on their own, making an appointment for an individual or couple, once every 3 days. Message us to receive instructions for this ZERO-CONTACT visit, or to view our digital checklist by email.

Huge thanks to Karlyn Benson for featuring Space Case on her new blog, Art Valley. Click photo to read the whole crazy backstory of the show, and be sure to follow her blog!

 
Susan Carr, The Fickle Finger of Fate, 2020, oil on wood, 24 x 18 inches. Message us for a digital preview of Susan's upcoming solo exhibition. 

2. Susan Carr’s solo exhibition has been postponed until late summer/fall.Email us to receive a digital preview of her exhibition of 86 artworks (so far!). We can’t wait to install the extraordinary work that Susan has been making for the past year, and to reopen our doors.

3. Throughout this health crisis, I’ve been struggling to find a way to make sense of everything. Fueled by frustration, I began painting all the envelopes that have come to LABspace from all of you over the past two years. My goal is to make and sell 100 envelopes for 50 bucks each. I post new envelopes on myInstagram nearly every day. Painting them has become a therapeutic experience, and continues to help fund the gallery. You can read more about it on Etty Yaniv’s blog, Art Spiel. Her Artists on Coping series has been a balm in these anxious days.

 
Christina Tenaglia, Untitled, 2020, paint, wood, nails, approx 18 x 7 x .5 inches. Email to claim via LABspace fundraiser. $300

4. We continue to show and sell artwork every day on Instagram andFacebook, as a fundraiser to keep our LABspace lights on. Please follow us, and scroll below to view available works. We are so indebted to artists who have donated their work, and to fellow artists and fans who continue to collect. We’d be nowhere without you, and certainly not in our physical space.

Thank you ALL for contributing to the success of this thrilling endeavor that we have loved since artist Susan Jennings founded the gallery in 2014. LABspace has brought so much meaning into our lives, and has connected us with so many of you. We are honored and energized to keep it going, no matter what.

See y’all SOON,
xo Julie & Ellen
