Ryan Lammie says he is an artist first, and founder and executive director of Radiant Hall second. For him, it all begins and ends with the art, and the artists that Radiant Hall provides studio space for.
After living in Brooklyn and attending the Pratt Institute, Ryan saw how difficult it was for artists to obtain and retain space where they could focus on their work. He found it to be challenging because the "artist districts" began with artists, making it popular, but then ultimately making it unaffordable to remain in the space.
Ryan ultimately took some time to get a clear vision while moving back to his hometown of Pittsburgh. He then began to share some studio space with a fellow artist and soon realized this space was large enough for him to invite other artists as well. From there Radiant Hall had begun to formulate. Ryan has now produced organized, affordable studio space for local artists to work, create or meditate in their respected spaces. Many also take advantage of having such an eclectic gathering of talented artist in one area to be sounding boards, critics or collaborators. Radiant Hall has become so in demand there is a waiting list for studio space, and Ryan has begun the process of opening additional studio's in other area's in the Pittsburgh region.
