Owner Anna Maria Whetstine hosted the grand opening tonight. The newly renovated home located in historic Haynie's Corner is part of the efforts from the Preservation Alliance of Evansville to revitalize the downtown area.

"I really like old houses," said Whetstine, "and so I wouldn't want something this beautiful to be like just torn down. It's good to preserve our history and architecture that we have here."

The two artist studio is now open Thursday through Saturday.
