Washington Street Art Center, a co-op art studios and gallery/event space in Somerville, has two work-only studio spaces available. We are seeking a visual artist for each vacancy and are specifically looking for artists interested in being active members of our community for a year or longer. We function as a collective, working in committees to manage the space, gallery-sit, and plan events. We are located about a 10-minute walk from the new Union Square T-stop, and various bus stops are nearby as well. Some weekend parking is available.
One studio is 123 sq ft and $332/month. It has two long wall spaces, and a window facing north.
The 2nd studio is 178 sq ft and $455/month. It has a closet, overhead storage, and some of the best light in the building.
Both studios are on the 2nd floor, which is accessible only by stairs. Rent is inclusive of wifi and all utilities. Please note, studios may not be used as music practice spaces nor living spaces, and our lease does not allow kilns.
We are conducting interviews with potential members via Zoom. Please fill out the form on our website ASAP, answer all questions, and include a link to images of your work -- Google docs is fine if you don't have a website. We will get in touch if we are interested in setting up a virtual interview with you at this time. We may also contact you about future studio openings.
