Rain means no studio use

When the studio has to close due to flooding...the classes and open-studio times are canceled.

The building used to be the police department garage...then was rennovated, the wall of doors changed to a wall of windows, and decorative murals placed on outside walls.

Our manager, Charles Freeland, gets out the shop vac and works to get the water sucked up.  It seeps in under the walls from rain coming down the hill above, as well as the roof downspouts.  The city owns the building, and has made some improvements in the drainage, but it still is a problem.

We are very grateful to now have an air-conditioner-heating unit, and hot and cold running water.  In the 11 years I've been a member, there have definitely been improvements!  Just can't get past the rain intrusion yet!
