It's time to start building a new gallery and performance space. Inspiration Studios opens its doors on March 1, 2014. Much has already been accomplished, but there is plenty to do before that Grand Opening, Do I admit that I'm a bit nervous about taking on such a huge challenge? OK. I admit it. It makes me a bit nervous, but it will be worth the time and effort. The excitement of creating something new...from an idea... is exhilirating! I will most certainly make mistakes in the process. (I already have!) If you have advice or suggestions that will help me keep this dream alive, I'd certainly welcome them. -Erico
