Monthly Rental Waitlist Updates

Dear Potential Studio Artist: We have been experiencing much longer than normal waitlist times for all of our monthly rentals due to increased demand and a decrease in the rate of vacancies. If you think you might be interested in getting monthly studio artist access, please contact us ASAP to be placed on the waitlist. We apologize for the long wait and hope to be able to accommodate you as soon as we can!

Because of this increase in demand, we can no longer accommodate scheduled short term rentals, and Studio Artists relinquishing their monthly rental will have to place their name on the waitlist if they wish to return in the future.  

Studio Artist Basic Monthly Rental Fee: $105.  

Additional shelves (up to 2 max): $10 per shelf, per month 

Please contact us to inquire about availability - there is currently a waitlist! 

Semi-Private Studio Space

(Limited Availability- contact us to be added to the waitlist) 

Spaces are approximately 80 sq.ft. and include one shelving unit.
For the primary renter the monthly rental rate is $260 month-to-month.
The rate is $235/month with a minimum 6-month lease.
A one year lease further reduces the monthly rate to $210/month.


One additional person, a secondary studio artist, may share the individual work space for an additional fee of $105 per month (which covers their basic monthly access).
