There are a number of opportunities for individual artists to become part of the Workhouse visual arts community. Opportunities include: studio space rental for working artists, gallery exhibitions for the emerging and professional artist, and public outreach and teaching opportunities that will provide an exciting educational and cultural experience for the community.
The Workhouse complex includes six buildings that are comprised of working artists' studios. Each building, or "house," has its own dedicated gallery space where the artists from that house display and sell their finished pieces. Visitors to the Workhouse can peruse the studios and the house galleries, interacting with the artists and viewing their works. Visitors are also able to view exhibitions of Workhouse artists in the two-story gallery building.
Workhouse Artists Association
There are two levels of Workhouse Artists Association (WAA) membership: Associate Member and Studio Member. Associate Members do not occupy studio space but enjoy the benefits of belonging to WAA. Studio Members occupy individual or shared studio space and work on site. For more information about the Workhouse Artists Association contact Brett John Johnson, Director of Visual Arts at email@example.com.
