Natalie Baldeon is a Visual Artist and Educator living in Saint Louis, MO. She received her Bachelors of Fine Arts from The University of Central Florida in 2008, and her Masters of Fine Arts from Washington University in 2012. She has exhibited her work locally and regionally at venues such as the St Louis Artist Guild, Arcade Contemporary Projects, and the Millitzer Gallery. Her work has also been shown nationally at North Seattle Community College, Seattle, WA; Kinsley Institute’s Grunewald Gallery of Art, Bloomington, IN; Zhou B Gallery, Chicago, IL; San Francisco Public Library, San Francisco, CA; and 1310 Gallery, Ft. Lauderdale, FL. In 2017 she was the Visiting Instructor for 'Drafts in Gesture' at the Pulitzer Arts Foundation, and the Visiting Artist for the LEAP Program at the Contemporary Arts Museum. She currently works as an Adjunct Professor at Webster University.

Baldeon’s work investigates psychological states and responses to transitions throughout life. She works in a variety of paint media including watercolor, oil and acrylic. Through her paintings, she seeks to shed light upon subject matters and experiences that are often hidden or obscured. She uses her personal experiences as the entry point to address a broader conversation. The intention of the work is exposure; turning outward what may be concealed within one’s body or subconscious, as well as within the restrictions, taboos and expectations of societal roles. Her most recent body of work focuses on motherhood, and the complexities that accompany it.

Philadelphia, PA

My name is Genevieve Geer and I am opening a hybrid space that is a glass studio/ retail / gallery, and most importantly, houses four small 10x10 studios, that we are renting for $285. This covers rent, electric, ac and internet. Each studio is private, and secure. We created these spaces to fill a gap in the Philadelphia studio market. Most studios that are safe and warm or cool start at $600 plus utilities. We think these high rents are a trend in Philadelphia that is completely unsupportive to artists, and is driven by developers looking solely to make a buck. Happy to have artists in the neighborhood, but do nothing to sustain them. We think these small inexpensive spaces are a necessity for a healthy creative city, and we want to set an example! We are looking for a nice combination of artists for our first rentals- hopefully for December 1st. 


Utility Works Creative Community:

We are just getting started so there are several studio spaces available. Studios from $125/month and Hot Desks from $100/month. Visit  for more information or 610.745.4013 or email at to schedule a tour!
