Local artist opens creative studio downtown

Annie Ross has many creative passions: dance, photography, makeup. But her biggest one is guiding the creative passions of others.

That’s why the Auburn native will open a new studio, Atelier, on the first floor of the city’s historic Phoenix Building this weekend.

The name of the studio is a French word for a space where artists create together, Ross told The Citizen, which is what she’ll offer there. At an hourly rate, the studio can be rented by makeup artists who need to teach a class, for instance, or photographers who need to take a headshot. The natural light of the space makes it ideal for those uses, but any number of artistic possibilities await there.

“Auburn is so rich in talent — actors, pianists, singers, dancers,” Ross said. “It all needs to have a space where it can all go.”
