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.

Studio 409


While writing her senior thesis as a social studies major at Harvard in 1985, Stone said she first realized a passion for film during a screening of “Enormous Changes at the Last Minute.” The film was written by John Sayles, and was about single mothers. “It was really powerful and had a lot to say,” Stone said. “That was my big epiphany moment. I just had stories I wanted to tell that could best be told visually, because my first love has always been storytelling.”

Studio 214


Of particular interest to Ortale are skylines, city-scape, structure and the visual energy where the sky meets the edge of building forms. Contrasts, such as hard/soft, blue/orange, light/dark are all emphasized. Abstraction of both form and color create a two dimensional plane that is layered one over the other for a sequential sense of depth.

Artist statement:

I am primarily concerned with the expression of color, light and movement in my compositions. The exploration of transparency and reflection are central to my thinking.

The Game with Colors and Geometrical Shapes.

In my spontaneous painting ( I named it:“ Free painting” ) with ink on wet rice paper  I draw my inspiration from imagery of the large arias of landscapes seeing like from pilot view (looking down while moving). These painting are like a poem, composed not from lines, but woods and fields, grass and flowers, earth and water. One can watch them as one would watch a fire, or look into a pool of water, and meditate. One can feel them as one feels music. Looking into them gives one a sense of peace and happiness. I think the ability to meditate, to take beauty into oneself is the most important and revitalizing ability of every person. It’s each person‘s spiritual force and beauty. It is what heals us. The Rays of Light, Rainbow are my colors, my source of poetry, my inspiration. The Infinity of Light. The Light is Life. The Childhood is Light. The Light is the Childhood. Experimenting, playing with colors on any surface, imagining them coming to life shaped in some 3D object, become alive with the magic touch and then let them go to real life with people to be admired, loved, remembered… This is what I am trying to do in my work.
