StudioWorks is a non-profit art gallery and studio benefiting adults with developmental disabilities. The artists can choose from a variety of art making processes and materials. Central to our program are drawing and painting, but ceramic sculpture, jewelry making, collage, photography, and fiber arts are also available. We respect the idea that artists with developmental disabilities are capable of significant individual expression.
All the art at StudioWorks is made by the artists in our space. We encourage sales and our artists receive an 80% commission on all sold work. The remaining 20% goes back into the program for art materials. The program receives its funding primarily through Medicaid waivers which provide our artists with a range of choice that can enrich their lives.
Our staff consists of five professionally-trained artists who interact with our member artists daily as they teach new techniques and provide support. We welcome visiting artists into our space to provide workshops or presentations of their own original artworks. Our visiting artist program helps expand our member artists frame of reference for what is possible through art. StudioWorks also holds art exhibits and looks for exhibition opportunities outside our space as well. Framing all our activities is the inclusive idea of belonging to and participating with the larger community.

Monday – Friday: 8:00 am – 4:00 pm
