No one would blame you if you are a bit wary about this new cool front. This is Austin, after all –  there is a great possibility that heat and humidity are again just around the corner, waiting in the wings to make you miserable. Feel like escaping to Virginia to cultivate your art and take in some beautiful scenery? We thought you might.

Virginia Commonwealth University School of the Arts and Fountainhead Development invite fine artists to apply for a yearlong subsidized non-living art studio in the New Manchester Flats incubator. This is part of a new 10-acre, eco-friendly, mixed-use development (artist studios, apartments) in the Manchester neighborhood of Richmond, Virginia. This is an opportunity to develop work within a community of challenging artists. It is our hope – with your help – incubator will become a synergistic and thriving artists’ community in Richmond.

Up to 20 artist studios will be available for rent at subsidized rates: $265 plus $25 utilities monthly.
Participants will have 24-hour access to the following:

  • Private studio, each approximately 300 sq ft
