Recent Visual Arts MFA Grads APPLY NOW FOR STUDIO SPACE IN THE BCA’S ARTISTS STUDIO BUILDING. APPLICATION DEADLINE AUGUST 6, 2014.
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.

Georgina Lewis makes work that probes the junctures of the human and the machine; nature and the built environment. With a diverse set of media, including sound, photography, sculpture, video, and drawing she creates pieces that are humorous, insightful, and at times gaudy. She is concurrently engaged in several projects focusing on language, technology, classification, and the moon: exploring nostalgia, data, and the common need for a place of fantasy.
Georgina received her MFA in sound art from Bard College and holds undergraduate degrees from Franklin and Marshall College and the School of the Museum of Fine Arts Boston. Georgina is the recipient of fellowships from the Millay Colony and the Virginia Center for the Creative Arts; her work has been presented at numerous venues including the Visual Studies Workshop, National University of Ireland, REDCAT in Los Angeles, Axiom, and Art Interactive. She was a 2012-13 metaLAB Fellow at Harvard University and is currently a fellow at MIT’s Hyperstudio; she works in an academic research library.

My work is an expression of my personal experience of the fullness of life. The printmaking, handmade paper and mixed media that I work with reflects the rich complexity of a tri-cultural sensibility (Indian, Scandinavian and American). I use color, texture and form to explore the push and pull of seemingly opposing forces. I often layer my work to reflect the passing of time but the final image is fresh and alive just like the present moment that carries in itself all that has been. My work is a reflection of my inner life and identifies harmony in a dynamic and constantly charged world.

Basil El Halwagy creates 'fine art superheroes', characters that embody ideas about creativity and spirituality. These characters start as drawings and spawn with a desire to make artwork come to life. Fine art superheroes draw their power and impact from fine art movements, like Art Nouveau or Arabesque Art. The motif on the hero's is based on pattern one of these artistic styles. The wearable art is used to produce photographs that explore the hero's psyche, and with the collaboration of talented dancers and performers, these fine art superheroes now interface with the public.
The Untitled Man, the fine art superhero seen in these photographs, is an avatar for the creative self. This wearable art-character is vulnerable, protective, and energetic. The interweaving white lines on its body represent a dynamic network of energy, while its blood red color, exposed beyond skin, evokes the vulnerability that comes with sharing ones creative desires.
