Our newest addition to the creative team, Justine McKnight, will be launching her new website, Juxt13, in a few weeks.

Justine is a highly experienced make up artist, currently working for MAC Cosmetics and also working as a freelance make up artist. She came by the other day to do some promotional shots for her upcoming launch on Feb 14th.

We’re really excited for the launch of Justine’s site and looking forward to collaborating with her on upcoming projects at the studio!

Everyone in Hamilton knows what happens on the second Friday of every month. Of course I’m talking about Art Crawl! What you didn’t know is that starting this month Low Key Studio will be launching the Art Crawl After Party.

To kick things off we’re pairing up this months Art Crawl After Party with some great friends of ours, Johnny Major. They just released their debut full-length album on iTunes and they decided to celebrate the occasion with us here at Low Key! This will also be the Official Premiere Screening for their Music Video for the song Ghetto Fabulous. They’ll be doing a live acoustic rendition of some of the songs on their album, and GG Cole will be doing an acoustic set as well.

There will be art on display and for sale in the gallery, as well as Live-Art by Sanjay Patel. Cash bar, so this will be 19+, but FREE TO GET IN!!! If you’re Art Crawling on Friday the 13th, definitely make an effort to stroll over and pop in for a look! Things get started when the Art Crawl starts to slow down. See you here!!

Oh, and while you’re here…check out the workshops and studio rental we offer here at Low Key ; )

Things are moving along this weekend. We’ve been framing out the North facing wall to accommodate bigger window sills, finishing up the kitchen area, and getting the make-up area set up.

We also picked up a bunch of square frames from Ikea for the Instagram showcase and Augie from the Hamilton Tiger Cats stopped in to drop off his barely used leather love seat and micro suede chairs.

Still a lot to do before the Grand Opening party, but most of the big stuff is out of the way so we’re feeling pretty good about moving forward!

We’ve finally gotten enough confirmation to move forward with an Official Announcement for the Grand Opening Party! Low Key Studio & Gallery will have the official Community Launch Party on November 26th featuring DJ Adverb on the Technics and of course Sanjay Patel doing the Live Painting.

There are still more possibilities including a possible acoustic set by pop-duo Johnny Major who’s newest album is dropping on the 11th! And there will definitely be a fun-photo booth set up at the party.

Keep checking back for more information on this BYOB party. To sign up for the facebook event, click HERE. It’s not mandatory for entry but will help me with numbers and I’ll be able to keep you in the loop.

Hope to see you all there!

Having just acquired the keys to the former architect’s office yesterday, work is already underway at Low Key to prep the shooting area.

After a days work, we’ve got half the walls down, as well as half of the 1/8th inch facade covering the original brick walls.

We’ve got a lot of work to do before the Grand Opening party in November. Check back often for updates on the construction and the party!
