Studios to Rent
As of June 29th no studios are currently available.
We invite interest from established and emerging visual artists, producing original art in any medium appropriate to our space. We welcome a variety of stye, and encourage you to contact us for more information. If you have an interest in renting in the future, please contact our chairperson, Lora Lea Dawson, listed below.
The LOW-DOWN: Selected artists will sign a membership agreement that includes
organizational, participation, and studio time commitments. Studios are rented on a month to
month basis, rent determined by the square footage of the space. A one-month security
deposit is required, which is held in escrow against damage or failure to pay rent. Security in
The Square is provided. All utilities are included in monthly rent, and there is access to a
kitchen and common gallery space. Each studio has large windows that open to the interior of
the gallery, high ceilings, drywall, and some exposed brick walls.
Artists’ Attic studios are reserved for established and emerging fine artists actively engaged
in making visual art created primarily for aesthetic purposes and judged for its beauty
and meaningfulness, specifically, painting, sculpture, drawing, watercolor and graphics.
Studios are to be used to create and exhibit fine art. Studio artists are expected to greet
and interact with the public, and to be present and working in their studios at least
10 hours a week.
Established fine artists have substantial professional experience (i.e. exhibitions, sales,)
and are responsible for creating their own work, not interpreting the work of others
or creating under the guidance of an instructor or mentor. An emerging fine artist is
a professional artist who is in the early stages, up to 10 years, of his/her career.
Emerging artists possess some professional experience (i.e. exhibitions, sales,) but
may not yet have established reputations as artists.
The HOW: Interested artists must submit an artist’s statement, resume, and three original
works produced within the last two years. They will then be juried for membership by the
membership committee. Contact Lora Lea Dawson, (see contact below) to set up a time
for drop off of submission materials, or for more information. Jury process takes 7-10 days.
Artists will be notified via phone or email. There is no deadline for submission, as applications
will be considered as long as there is space available. There will be a waiting list established
once all studios are full.
