Ash Street Project

Ash Street Project, the vision of artists Thomas Orr and Joanna Bloom, encompasses art studios, visiting artists, gallery space, community programs and a clay-based emerging artist mentorship program.  Our site also hosts an on-line gallery shop.

Emerging Artists Mentorship Program



The Ash Street Project Emerging Artist Mentorship Program (EAMP) is a laboratory for personal development. It is an eleven month studio intensive where clay-based artists work alongside Thomas Orr in a mentoring atmosphere. Participants are typically seeking a specific goal such as portfolio building for graduate studies, gaining knowledge in preparing for life as a studio artist, or a focused studio time to reposition their work. It is a making seminar with a collective work environment providing interaction with visiting artists, exhibition space, lectures and critiques.
