The BCA is now accepting applications for recent Visual Arts MFA graduates to rent studio space in the Artists Studio Building at the BCA.

PROGRAM OVERVIEW: The Boston Center for the Arts (BCA) is extending a great opportunity for recent MFA graduate students to join the artistically established members of our Artists Studio Building (ASB). Two artist studios (one single occupancy and one optional double occupancy) are available for a term of 2 years, at a very competitive market value, as of September 2014. This offers recent graduates space to develop their practice while working in a community of active studio artists in diverse fields. Participants also have access to Mills Gallery programming, Boston area open studio events, professional development, international artists and art professionals.

About the Artist Studios

The Artist Studios at the Boston Center for the Arts are dedicated to providing affordable workspace and a supportive environment to artists in all disciplines, and at all stages of artistic development. Artists working in studios at the BCA include painters, printmakers, sculptors, filmmakers, craftspeople, writers, performing artists and other art-related organizations.

The building includes fifty work-only studios for artists and arts organizations (studios are not live-in spaces). Studio sizes range from 110 sq ft to 1500 sq ft.

Artists and arts organizations are selected and placed in studios at the BCA through an application and jury-­review process as studios become available.

If you would like more information on the Artist Studios or are interested in applying for a studio, please refer to the application instructions.

Artist statement:

"My work delves into the intangible aspect of the tangible. I think of my paintings as dreamscapes, or psychological environments, that can hopefully provide a platform for reflection and discovery. The figure is used metaphorically, with a penchant for the absurd."


The Dutch Masters and Italian Renaissance painters left an indelible imprint on Deborah as she explored the personal context of self-expression in her art. A reverence for painters of the past is evident in her work, where old world style combines with contemporary images in dream-like worlds rich with symbolism. Van Auten has spent her adult years in San Francisco, London, Boston, and New York where she studied at the Art Students League, School of Visual Arts, and was awarded a scholarship to the Salmagundi Club.

The award-winning work of Van Auten is in many private collections, and has been exhibited nationally. She has been featured in such publications as Art News, Art in America, American Art Collector, Southwest Art Magazine, Who’s Who in Visual Art, The Boston Globe, Art New England, among others.
