Artists Studio Spaces in the Greater DC Area

DC doesn't have big warehouses like NY and Baltimore and artists have studios in all kinds of spaces, from home studios to art organizations. An artist recently emailed me about where to find available artist space in the greater Washington DC area. I've started a list of organizations and groups who have artist studios to rent or to share. I've decided to post this for my readers as an expandable resource. You'll need to check with each location about guidelines for their studio spaces.

Let me know of other artist studio spaces you'd like to add to the list, please leave the information in the comments form for review. I will expand the list as time goes on. Here's the beginning and I hope it helps some of you find a great place to work.

  2. Hi Anne. I know this is an old post, but I'm looking for studio space.

    Right now I work out of a shared space in Brooklyn, which has been awesome, but I am forced to move to DC and am discovering how difficult it is to find this type space for welders and metal fabricators.

    Any advice is greatly appreciated...

    Can anybody out there help?? thanks again,
