Create / Art Studios

Artists Studio

Where the co-working area is the digital realm of activity, the art studios welcome makers from a wide variety of disciplines: painters, textiles, jewelry, printmaking, photography, sculpture and more. The studios are rented on a month-to-month basis. Studio spaces become available periodically, so get in touch if you are interested in renting a space.

Gallery

PHOENIX is a running Art Gallery. Exhibits are in constant rotation and we have an open call for art. Contact us here with references to your work if you would like to exhibit here. Selections are limited but we’ll get back to you about details and availability, either way.

Creative Workshops

Our goal is to give Alameda an immersive artistic incubator by offering designated spaces for workshops, where makers can do printmaking, hand lettering, collaging, flower crowns, fairy doors and much, much more. Let us know if you would like to host a workshop at PHOENIX or which workshops you would like to see offered.

Joy Coakley

Photographer

Joy is an Alameda based photographer, capturing family, newborn + child, maternity, and high school senior moments. With a BFA in Photography from the Academy of Art in San Francisco, She’s led a very fun and successful career as a commercial photographer and stylist. It wasn't until some years ago, when Joy decided to bring my love of beauty and working with real people together and start shooting again. “As a lover of psychology and human behavior, it's like my own way to study and record the beauty and intrigue I see in people and the interactions between. And then it just comes down to that fact that I also love to have a ton of fun with anyone who is willing to enjoy it with me!

Yosiell Lorenzo

Mixed Media Artist

Yosiell’s work incorporates a variety of textures, often using the palette of earth tones or dark colors. He works in varying mediums including sculpture, painting, ink and digital art. Yosiell creates Victorian era inspired illustrations along with resin figures called Sicklings. Many of the illustrations are influenced by the spiritualist movement of the times. Each has the subtle feel of the sepia toned photos of the 1800’s.
His paintings and resin sculptures are collected around the world. Additionally, Yosiell makes his presence known in group shows around the country with events in New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago and Miami. Recent personal highlights include being a featured artist in the Pixar Times, Juxtapoz.com, and Hallmark UK.
