It is with a heavy heart I announce that ReCreative Spaces will be closing at the end of 2017. It has been a FANTASTIC three and a half years, and I am so grateful to all of the artists, supporters, and audience members who have joined us on this journey. It is because of YOU that we were able to do as much as we did. Unfortunately, it is no longer sustainable to operate out of our current space in Mount Rainier, MD.
None of this would have been possible without my co-founder John Kagia or the fearless Jordan Dyniewski. From the bottom of my heART, thank you.
I also want to take a moment to offer my sincerest gratitude to The Menkiti Group - and to Bo Menkiti in particular - they have been our pARTner in real estate since the beginning. Without them, there never would have been a space to make + share our vision. I am forever indebted to them for their kindness, enthusiasm, support and most especially, for the opportunity to turn my dream into a reality.
OK. BUT WHAT DOES THIS MEAN, EXACTLY?
There will be FOUR final chances to catch us in December. Please come! Celebrate with us!
FINAL GALLERY SHOW

December 14 | 6-9pm | You Should - one night only!
• The current Resident Artists will remain in the space through March of 2018

• We will NOT be booking any new events after December 31, 2017
• As of January 2018, we will transition into a consulting company - please reach out if you’d like to work with us!
Closing a business, it turns out, is almost as expensive as running one; without all the perks. We greatly appreciate you supporting us by buying tickets, and coming to help us celebrate - to help us ReCreate ALL OF THE AMAZING MEMORIES we will carry with us.
You can also make a tax deductible donation HERE. (Any donation above $10 includes a ticket to the pARTing pARTy.)
*If you have photos or video of your time with us, or stories you'd like to share - from any of our locations - please send them our way. We’d love to include them at our goodbye pARTy!
With so much love + creativity,
Co-Founder / Director
