Monolight is here to serve the needs of artists in our community. 

We know how difficult it can be when studio space is expensive, our homes are full, and exposure is limited. The residency at Monolight was born from conversations with local artists for an affordable place to work, that is or can be open to the public, and the desire for exposure. We hope to provide an interactive environment for artists and the community, to have a retail space our visiting artists can show their work, and create connections within our artist community.

Residency Details
  • This short term studio will run long term in 3 month intervals. We are currently booking for our Autumn and Winter residencies.
  • The space is 150 square feet, with heat and AC. There is shelving available, a bathroom, and hand sink. You will have 24/7 access to the space.
  • Your work can be available in the retail portion of Monolight on a consignment basis.
  • The space and this residency is flexible.

Please contact us if you have any questions. We are especially interested in what kind of work you do and what you hope to accomplish here.
