from the beginning.
A marvellous artist named Ji once told me and I quote "OMG, you should open a gallery, like for real... I'm serious!". So that same day, I looked it up and things seemed quite arduous and costly. I didn't gave up and continued the research. Not 4 days later, I had found the location, the name, the website, etc. It just goes to say that when things are meant to be, they will fall into place.
Funny story about the naming process of the studio. A few friends of mine would describe me as having a squirrel obsession. I describe it as just having a lot of enthousiasm over those small animals. I wanted something that would embody who I truly am while remaining simple. So I tried The Squirrel Studio, but it just didn't sound appealing. Then I thought about The Nut Studio, but this one sounds a little bit inappropriate. It's at that moment when my friend was laughing about that name that it hit me, The Acorn Studio.
The goal is to have a place that gathers all of the Maritimer's talent in one place. People don't seem to be aware of how much there is to show in the provinces. That's why we need to build stronger art communities that do not put up a wall... nut!
