Support the new PROJECT PRINT Studio

Wednesday, March 12th, 2014

Update:

Our Kickstarter was an epic fail, but we moved forward with a minimal print shop on the 4th floor of Neumann Leathers. We have one intaglio press and the gear to support etching, drypoint, block printing, and monotype. Contact us for details.

 

Help us invite artists to create a series of fine-art print editions in the processes of stone lithography, etching, drypoint, and monotype.

Project Studios in Hoboken, New Jersey, our company that provides studio space and creative support for individual artists and collectives, musicians, and creative companies and non-profits in the greater New York City area wants to re-open our print shop. Many of the artists we work with have expressed interest in having access to a traditional printmaking studio where they can create print editions or just get very creative with a medium that they don’t normally work with on a day-to-day basis.

The first step is to make our existing fine-art printmaking studio better serve the needs of local artists, by adding the stone lithography process to our capabilities. This will require the purchase of a lithography press, lithography stones, and the handling equipment required to support the medium. A good lithography press is a fairly large capital investment for a studio, and the stones themselves are quite rare and are difficult to obtain. Fortunately, we have located a private print shop that is selling exactly what we need. Our shop already has the tools for etching, engraving, drypoint, monotype, and wood cut printing including an intaglio press.

The second part of the equation is giving selected area artists free access to the print studio for six months. During that time the artists may work on anything they like, but they will also be required to produce sets of prints that will be distributed as rewards to backers of this project. The studio will provide some special found paper with historical relevance that artists may choose to work with including old paper garment patterns from the leather factory where the studio is housed, and antique blueprints from the now-vanished dockyards of Hoboken.

You can help make this happen by contributing to this project, and you will be rewarded with original artwork from artists that we invite to the studio. There is also an option to take a short printmaking class.

Pledge your support and receive original artwork as a thank-you gift.

The final celebration of the successful project will be an exhibition and opening reception party at Proto Gallery, a local contemporary art gallery in Hoboken. All artists participating in the project may exhibit prints generated during the duration of their free residencies.

New Studio Shares at Neumann Leathers

Friday, October 4th, 2013

We have an availability right now in our 4th floor shared space. See below for details about the studio.

4th Floor Share: 20 ft. x 14ft. (suite: 24 ft. x 45 ft. 1080 sq. ft.) 525.00

 

We have built a few semi-private studios at the Neumann Leathers building in Hoboken. These are contained within a 1100 sq. ft. suite with a 12 ft. ceiling. Each studio has 8 ft. walls dividing it from the neighboring studios, but the natural light from the windows lights up all of the spaces. The suite is air-conditioned and heated, and the two windows can be opened for fresh air.

4th Floor Share: 20 ft. x 14ft. (suite: 24 ft. x 45 ft. 1080 sq. ft.) 575.00

4th Floor Share: 10 ft. x 14ft. (suite: 24 ft. x 45 ft. 1080 sq. ft.) 300.00

 

4th Floor Studio Share

 

The spaces are suitable for drawing, painting, sculpture, or other creative pursuits. They are not suitable for music rehearsal. Obviously, some courtesy to studio mates is a requirement. The lease term is month-to-month, so these are great starter studios.

Proto Gallery: Pre Launch Availability

Friday, February 22nd, 2013

As we continue to bring Proto Gallery closer to launch, I want to let everybody know that we are lending the gallery space for photography and videography projects. The space is available by the day or by the week for a very reasonable fee. So far, we have had a crew from PBS and NPR, a fine artist producing a video about her painting process, and a photographer and stylists producing a fashion magazine photo essay. Please contact us immediately using the Contact Form on this site if you want to take a look at Proto or other spaces that we have at Project Studios in Hoboken.

Now in Stock for March 2013: Art Studios

Friday, February 1st, 2013

Yes, we have new studios ready for February. At the time of this blog post, we have one studio that is ready for a new artist tenant. Here are some under-construction studios that we will be preparing in the next few days.

Neumann Leathers Building C, 3rd Floor

$725.00 per month, 470 sq. ft., 1 Window, 220v Air Conditioner, upgraded 110v electrical, all utilities + wifi included

This studio is on the third floor facing South. There is a view of the waterfront and lower Manhattan. True, this space only has one window, but the other window (bricked up in antiquity) houses a powerful air conditioner. Floors are wood, walls are sheetrock and brick. Lights are 8′ tube-light fixtures.

 

Neumann Leathers Building A, Ground Floor

$650 per month, 450 sq. ft., Two Windows, upgraded electrical, High-Voltage available, all utilities + wifi included

This one is on the ground floor, sharing walls with Proto Gallery. This studio has concrete floors, a brick wall, and three sheetrock walls. There will be one or two windows depending on how the construction goes. The door will be a double steel door, so this is a good space for producing  large work. Lights are 8′ tube-light fixtures.

 

Happy New Year: Rent This

Friday, December 28th, 2012

Happy New Year from the Special Projects Department at Project Studios. Sure, we are getting closer to launching Proto Gallery, but there is still time for a Stealth B-2 studio for art or music. Looks nice, right? This bad boy is currently in development, but we want to either lease the entire space to one tenant, or split it down the middle for two. Give us a shout. It’s supersonic with a massive payload with close proximity to our heaviest freight elevator, 220 V 3-Phase power available, numerous windows, and sexy old factory floors.

300 Sq. Ft. Studio Available for January 1, 2013

Saturday, December 15th, 2012

If you are in the market for an art studio for 2013, get in contact with us now. We have one vacancy for an excellent space at Neumann Leathers, and there will be more in early 2013.

January 2016

With the closing of the Art Factory in Paterson, NJ, we once again see development squeezing the habitat of our artists and creatives. The R. Neumann and Co. leather factory in Hoboken, where Project Studios is located, is under new ownership, and this time the city of Hoboken City Council has voted on a development plan that includes explicit requirements to maintain the creative studios and shop space in the existing buildings on the property. Project Studios has been working closely with building ownership to provide a vision of what art, music, and gallery spaces can look like in a future renovation of Neumann Leathers.

Neumann Leathers will continue to be a core creative zone for the foreseeable future in Hoboken. Contact us with any questions about studio availability. We have many projects in the works that can accommodate artists and musicians displaced by the Art Factory closing.

Recently, with PROTO Gallery’s MEGALODON pop-up group exhibition, a new 6000 sq. ft. space has been added to the roster of active creative spaces in at R. Neumann. A series of exhibitions and events are currently being scheduled for 2016, beginning with a group show of Neumann Leathers tenants. Stay tuned to PROTO Gallery and Project Studios social media for details and announcements.
