Local Gallery Expands Space, Offerings Something new is blooming for spring at Creative Genius Art Gallery & Studio!

The fine art and fine craft gallery and studio located in the heart of Medford, has expanded, relocating their studio to additional new space located behind the current gallery space. As a result, the gallery space has increased by 25%. Owners Julie Basello-Holt and Chris Holt are excited about the additional gallery space and the new studio space has really been a great addition as well. “The additional gallery space not only allows us to offer our clients even more exciting art but also increases our exhibit space”, says Basello-Holt. “It’s great to see our clients’ reactions when they enter the gallery and see how much larger it appears. There have been lots of oohs and aahs.”

The change in the studio has been popular with clients too. The new space has offered the opportunity to book even more events for both children and adults including additional weekly classes, a full schedule of workshops, girl scout clay and ceramics badge classes, custom art parties and more. Current weekly offerings include Pottery (wheel throwing and hand-building, Mom and Me Pottery Classes for children under 5, Digital Photography for Kids, Painting and Drawing for Kids, Painting and Drawing for Adults, and Jewelry classes (metal-smithing). Workshop offerings include many jewelry options as well as mosaics, stained glass and one on one Adult Digital Photography classes. Some workshop programs being explored right now are Fused Glass Plate workshop, Painting Techniques workshops by many local and visiting artists/instructors, Weaving for Beginners and more. The studio also hosts Girl Scout Pottery Badge Classes where scouts can earn their pottery badge and custom art parties for both children and adults. Basello-Holt stresses that adults have just as much fun as children do in the parties they book. "Art parties are a great way to get together with friends, learn something new and enjoy time spent together," she says.
