THE ANNEX: A Scalehouse Project located in the atrium of Franklin Crossing is the latest program from Scalehouse Collaborative for the Arts. The ANNEX is a space dedicated to showing emerging local artists. Through an open online application, artists will submit work and proposals. We’re delighted to support local artists with a space to show new works, gain experience and exposure in the field, and add to Scalehouse’s mission of building community around arts and culture events.

Current Exhibit: Prisms Featuring Michelle Schultz

November 29, 2023 - January 20, 2024

My forthcoming collection, Prisms, aims to spread a message of hope and connection to a community facing overwhelming responsibilities.  Art possesses the power to unveil the magic often overlooked in our daily lives and transform it into waves of joy.  Through this collection, I hope to offer viewers a different perspective, reminding them that even in the midst of pain, there is light and hope. Just like refracted light our own eyes can re-learn to see the world and all its beauty.

As a mother, I believe that my purpose as an artist extends to inspiring the next generation of compassionate and innovative thinkers.  My art is my voice, and through it I share my story, empower others, and foster healing, truth, and hope.

Creating community with local non-profit organization, HUE, played a pivotal role in shaping this collection. I have had the privilege of teaching a watercolor technique to HUE students and including their work in this exhibition. Our rainbow creations together bring symbols of hope and joy, enveloping the room, guiding us all toward a brighter tomorrow.

The artist has been creating acrylic paintings exploring feminine empowerment by capturing the intimate moments within her own spiritual journey. Vivid colors communicate the sensitivity and emotion in her work. Through paint she creates a channel for the viewer to connect to ones’ own sense of self more deeply.
