Makers in Business with Liz Smith Ep 207 Maxine Farkas

I had fun sitting down with Maxine Farkas, the manager at Western Avenue Studios in Lowell, MA where I have my studio. I found out how she got started in her textile and mixed media arts and we talked about the significance for artists of having a studio space.
