Artist Work Spaces

King County

’57 Biscayne | Seattle, WA
After the closing of the Western building Jane Richlovsky worked to develop thirteen new studios out of a vacant office space at 1st and Cherry, in the heart of Seattle’s historic Pioneer Square neighborhood to help restore the space lost to artists. Several other artists from the Western pooled their benefits to help with remodeling costs, many pitched in with their own labor to finish up the space. The new studios provide light, spacious, safe work space for a variety of artists, including painters, jewelry makers, printmakers, photographers, videographers, book designers, and a letterpress.

SpaceFinder from Fractured Atlas | Nationwide
For artists, the process of finding work space can be frustrating and inefficient. Meanwhile, venues have limited resources to spend finding new renters. Earned revenue is critical for creative venues yet many rental spaces are tragically underutilized. Through the SpaceFinder program, Fractured Atlas is increasing visibility of rental options, helping artists find the space they need, and helping venues promote and rent their spaces.
