Artist Marcene Glover is owner and founder of ArtHouse6. She exhibits in NYC and abroad, painting from her Johnstown studio MG Studio On7, on Clinton Street. She formed Windscape Artventures LLC, opening the ArtHouse to host collaborating artists and audience for creative experiences in an artful environment. Nestled in the Laurel Mountains, it is a convenient train stop between the iconic art meccas of Pittsburgh and New York City.
In its first few years, the ArtHouse has fulfilled the vision with Glover, elevating over 50 artists, serving 8 organizations, bringing international recognition to regional artists, and NYC recognition to Johnstown as an arts destination!
ArtHouse Residencies have lead to advanced professional development, collaboration, and mentorship. Some of Glover's like-minded colleagues...master artists and international curators, join in activating the networks, with exhibitions, studio concentrations, creative retreats, excursions, and connoisseur indulgences. Together these AIR activities focus on elevating fine arts professionalism, fostering creativity, and igniting a passion for cross-cultural collaborations.
Spoken word, theatrical readings, musical performances, and artisan highlights animate the ArtHouse. From there, residency artists can go on excursions exploring the region's rich subjects for inspiration! Artists thrive within a guided or self-directed format.
Residencies and retreats are available for visual artists, performing artists, curators, writers, songwriters, and metal artisans. Partnering opportunities are available with State Theater, Center for Metal Arts, Gallery on Gazebo, and many regional Arts organizations.
