Thank you for your interest in Western Avenue!

We are a place where artists make their work while interacting, learning, and growing together into a creative community that is greater than any individual studio or artist.

THIS IS THE LIVE/WORK LOFT APPLICATION: if you are applying for a Work-Only Studio please click here.

The Lofts at Western Avenue are residential spaces for working artists who can document current productivity in their chosen medium. It is not necessary to have the sale of art as your primary income. While the spaces are suitable for making artwork, it is not required that you make your art in your loft.

The Studios at Western Avenue are work-only spaces for artists at all stages of their careers or practice. The individual studios are intended to be primarily used for artistic production and not as resale or retail shops, or solely as display galleries. Applicants’ work must be able to be created in a studio at Western Avenue.

About this Application

Our application process is designed to understand your creative foundation, completed work, artistic concept, technical competency, and community-mindedness. The jury, through a thoughtful review of written statements, artistic activity in your resume, and examples of your work, aims to select individuals who will not only benefit from the community but also enrich it.

The review committee meets after four applications are collected or every three months, whichever comes first. In the event that all studios or lofts are filled, accepted applicants will be placed on a wait list. The review committee’s decisions are final, but applicants who are not accepted are invited to apply again in six months’ time. Applicants must be 21 at the time of application.

Thank you

We appreciate your time and care in completing this application and look forward to seeing your work!
