About Trax Art Studios
TRAX Art Studios, Inc. was founded in 2016 by Tristina Dietz Elmes and Heather Neiman as a working artist studio with a twist. Besides using the space to paint for themselves, the TRAX studios are unique in that the artists offer open studio time to both experienced and beginner painters, art parties for those who want to immerse themselves in a relaxing activity with co-workers or friends while enjoying skilled instruction, art classes and longer workshops in subjects such as art journaling / oil painting / mixed media painting / encaustic wax, as well as much needed business services for South Florida artists.
Business services for artists include the ability to rent the studio space by the hour for project work or as a classroom for up to 12 students for a reasonable rate (with tons of free parking out front) and while-you-wait services including by-appointment artwork photography with light editing and cloud backup, quick one-sided postcard setup with on-site printing, and painting hanger fastening (saw tooth or wire). More services are anticipated soon, such as help with writing Artist Statements, Resumes, and Press Releases, and even fast website and social media setup will add to the convenience for local artists.
What's in a Name? We are often asked, "Where did the name TRAX Art Studios come from?" Well... from our experience quite a few artist studios are located in warehouses and other funky buildings near rail-road tracks. Plus, there is a railroad track right outside our front door! So, TRAX is a play on the word 'tracks'. :-D
