ARTISTS GALLERY RESIDENCE,
In 2007, their pioneering spirit drew Tom and Miki to Chattanooga where they were part of a group of artists from around the country selected to receive an artists incentive to live and work downtown. They have settled in the Southside’s Main Street arts district. Their home, a 100 year old brick Victorian, took two years to restore. As in Vermont and Florida, Paulsin’s talents have again made this house a standout, converting the downstairs into one of the most popular short term furnished residences available downtown. The artists live upstairs in their loft/studio. Known as The Artists Gallery Residence, the space is designed as a living gallery, with art for sale in every room. There is also a show room which opens during open studio tours the first Friday of every month.
VILLAGE OF THE ARTS
In 2000, they moved to Bradenton FL, where they were among a core group of artists who pioneered the Village of the Arts, a creative community in Bradenton, Florida. Kaos Gallery South found a home in that artist’s colony and has been featured numerous times in magazines and on HGTV.
MOUNT SNOW, VERMONT
Beginning in the mid-nineties, Kaos Studios & Gallery opened its doors for the first time in the Mount Snow Valley village of Wilmington, Vermont. It served as both a gallery and working studio for Boni, and it also represented the works of other fine regional artists. It was there that Miki Boni and Tom Paulsin met and later married.
