Studio Events

D. M. Gremlin Studios was created to foster an artistic community. In keeping with the legacy of studio founder, the late D. M. Gremlin, our mission is:

** To offer affordable and well-equipped facilities where musicians, photographers, models, and other artists can bring their inspirations to life;
** To become a gathering place where artists can meet fellow creators and share knowledge in both similar and differing media;
** To encourage and help make possible for every artistic vision to expand beyond its ever-imagined potential.

To these ends, we organize and host a variety of community and educational events. We are proud to host a monthly Studio Open House event, and a wide range of studio photography workshops from entry level through advanced lighting techniques. Instructors include studio owner Wendy Levin, along with world-class guest artists including master photographer Adam Chilson and internationally-renowned bodypainter and makeup artist Lisa Berczel of Battledress Paint-n-Body.

Additional Event Information

Studio Open House Nights

For over five years running, D. M. Gremlin Studios has set aside one evening a month to host this free photography, music, and arts community event.

For those who wish to visit/tour the studio in person prior to booking, this event provides the opportunity for tours of our recording and photography studio facilities. Open House allows those interested in D. M. Gremlin Studios to view the facilities not just as a collection of rooms and equipment, but as a living creative space with its potentials being demonstrated in action.

Each month's event is unique, built upon the collaborative creative energies of those who attend. Every Open House will include studio tours, open photo shooting, industry networking, portfolio sharing, and social time in a relaxed, professional studio environment. And additionally, we'll sometimes plan and announce featured themes or activities, which have in the past included art exhibitions, bbq's, photography workshops, bodypainting demonstrations, and live music performances.

There is no admission charge to attend the Open House events. Friends and clients are encouraged to stop by. Anyone interested in the studio who has never been here before is respectfully required to RSVP at least 48 hours in advance of the event .

Studio Open House scheduling and information can be found at the Open House web page.
