Studio Rental at First City Art Center

First City Art Center offers affordable studio spaces for visual artists working in a variety of mediums on our campus, located at 1060 N. Guillemard St. in the Gallery 1060 building.

Private and shared working spaces for up to 3 artists per studio are available at low-cost rent to artists who need working space and are interested in being part of a collaborative, creative environment. Our studio rentals offer a chance to tap into the many resources available at FCAC, including a wide range of classes and volunteering opportunities. Gallery 1060 artists may work in a variety of materials, including: glass, ceramics, metal, painting, drawing, photography, graphic design, illustration, mixed media, textiles, jewelry, fashion, sculpture, installation art and more!

Lease agreements are for a 12 month period beginning in February with a deadline to apply the first Friday in January. Studio rentals are granted as a one year commitment only and do not automatically renew. Each year, artists must reapply with recent work and no one is guaranteed to continue renting a space year after year, because we want to provide equal opportunity to all, based on the level of community interest.
