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.
At the BCA since 1997
I see the world in terms of lines, and my work is about line, whether it’s an etching, a drawing, or an animation. As a first grader I was scolded by my teacher, who told me that I needed to stop drawing lines, and use blocks of color, since “there are no lines in nature.” Maybe I have spent the rest of my life proving her wrong.
I was born in New York, raised in Toronto, and trained in Jerusalem. I have been living and working in Boston since 1988.

Beverly Sky is a fiber artist specializing in handmade paper/pulp painting and fabric collage. Her fabric collage, "The Flowering of The Buddha Mind: Transcendence Over Life and Death" has been selected from an entry field of 3,400 submissions to be exhibited in a collage show at the Thompson Gallery in September, 2012. The Thompson Gallery is a teaching gallery dedicated to exploring a single theme through a series of exhibits.
Marking the centennial of the appearance of collage in contemporary artwork, this exhibition aims to explore collage within art practices as much as it endeavors to examine the conceptual and political manifestations of this evolving artistic strategy. Collage has become ubiquitous within contemporary art and culture and its myriad applications have arguably expanded its original definition to become the most inclusive of artistic processes.
Beverly creates "fabricated paintings" by deconstructing the original patterns and pictures in fabrics and reintegrating them into a new image. This new medium, is a natural evolution of her work as a fiber artist. From weaving to papermaking and now fabric collage... she is still working with the same materials, fiber and in particular, cotton fiber.

Working with acrylic paints and pallet knives, Shapiro has been able to uncover a new, ever-changing style of painting. “The Pallet Knife Series”, for example, incorporates metallic, interference, iridescent and opalescent acrylics producing altered light reflections. Also used are sand, mortar, grout, pumice stone, and glass beads for the creation of texture.
