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.
