ST. JOHNS — Studio Retreat and the Clinton County Arts Council are two great resources for up and coming artists in the area. After speaking with Mary Ablao, owner of Studio Retreat, she made it clear that her studio was made for artists to create and share their work.

Clinton County Arts Council, just a block or two away, works hand-in-hand with Studio Retreat in displaying and selling local artists work, as well as collaborating on community events such as Art To Melt Your Heart, where families make art at Studio Retreat and then show it at the Arts Council.

“They are absolutely wonderful, they support the arts” Ablao said.

Ashley Jackson, Executive Director at the Arts Council, said that they help provide a platform for local talent to be displayed and noticed as well as host art classes. You can take classes at Studio Retreat as well as at the Arts Council. Don’t be shy, go and create something great to share with the world!
