Sankofa Studios Has Been Accepted Into Passageways Studios in Riverdale, Maryland!

I just wanted to let you know that I have just been juried into the Passageways Artist Studio in Riverdale, Maryland! Therefore, Sankofa Studio will have an established studio from which we will be working. I am so excited and in the process of moving now!

A little about Passageways:

Passageways came together in 1991 when a group of local artists found a large open space for rent in conveniently located Riverdale, Maryland. The artists rolled up their collective sleeves and constructed ten airy studios - learning to make drywall partitions, and other construction tasks. Five of the early members are still active in Passageways.

Passageways functions as a cooperative, providing: a congenial working environment for creative artists; an opportunity to interact, collaborate, and learn from colleagues; and an opportunity to show work with other members of the group. The various members work in painting, drawing, printmaking, mixed media, photography, stained-glass, sculpture, tapestry, quilting and fiber arts - wherever the muse directs.

They host an open-studio event twice a year - in the spring and in the fall. The dates are posted on this website, along with directions. They heartily invite you to come to the open-studio to see the latest work of our artists, and chat with them about art, while enjoying light refreshments.

The ARTISTS section of this website contains representative samples of our work along with contact information. You are invited to call to arrange an appointment to view and discuss the work of a favorite artist in greater depth.

Studio vacancies occur from time-to-time. If you are a working artist and wish to be placed on a waiting list for studio space, call them at 301 459-8038, and learn more about the jurying process.

Future posts will include photos of the new space! Stay tuned!
