Visual Artist Residencies

Studio 2035 / Bowland Art is a fine artist collective workspace gallery and academy in the downtown Reno area. Studio 2035 is located about a mile from the city center on what is becoming Reno’s emerging art culture district; Dickerson Road.

The collective provides very affordable artist workspace on a square foot basis to suit each artist’s needs. Resident workspaces start at approximately $125. per 8’x 8’ area (about $2/sq. foot).  Artists have 24/7 access to the building with amenities including utilities, trash, lounge/kitchenette, materials/art storage and wifi internet access. Although a workspace, it is also a gallery where artists may use their walls to display work for sale. There is a great diversity of subject, technique, medium and pricing within the community of artists. The culture of the building is for artists to have a creative affordable space to work and enable those who want to sell their work as well as eventually make their living from it.

The residents have the option of joining quarterly group shows in the foyer gallery space or can have a one person show as often as space permits. Artists are also welcome to have exhibitions in their workspace as often as they like.

2035 is also a teaching academy with a classroom of adequate space for about 10 students. Several of the artists are educators who teach traditional technique and methods. They are planning a complete curriculum including structured classes and workshops. These are scheduled and approved by the collective. Teachers can also schedule student shows both in the foyer gallery and their space.

Mission

Studio 2035 is an art space located in Reno, Nevada that was established in 2015. Our mission is to foster creativity and community by offering exhibition, education, and networking opportunities for emerging and established artists. We provide a place for creative people to focus on the development of their art and their career.

Visual Arts Residencies

Residencies are granted to emerging and established visual artists whose work must be relatively clean with minimal dust or aerosol contaminates such as solvents.  Residents must make use of the studio a minimum of 4 days per month. Workspaces are not storage space and must be kept reasonably clean as per renter’s agreement. Residents are encouraged to display their artworks in their space whether for sale or not. Residents work in collective and some semi-private studio spaces.
