The Arts Center @ 319 has a working studio space available for rent on Main Street in Smithfield, Virginia. The studio is one-fourth of a room twenty feet by twenty feet housing four equal and distinct studios. The rent is $150/month with an option of earning $50 credit through serving as a regular docent for the center.
The arts center is seeking an active artist who is interested in sharing the creative process with other artists and with a general audience. Professional artists in the fine arts or fine crafts are welcome to submit their portfolios. The artists will be selected by a jury process. The initial term of the lease is six months.
The goals of the resident artist program in the Arts Center @ 319 are:
Supporting the development of each studio artist through a stimulating environment that encourages the exchange of artistic ideas
Providing an opportunity for artists to showcase the development of their craft and to collaborate with other artists
Striving to elevate the recognition of the artists’ work within the larger art community
The center is the visual arts program of the Isle of Wight Arts League whose mission is to delight visitors and serve the community in presenting quality art. The expectation of the board of directors is that the Resident Artists serve as ambassadors for the arts to visitors (over 13,000 last year), as hosts for Arts Center @ 319 and as leaders in the community.
