Midway Artist Studios Artist Live-Work Studios in Fort Point, Boston MA

Permanent Affordable Live-Work housing for Artists Fundamental to the arts in Boston is a place for artists to live and work. That place is Midway Artist Studios, 89 live-work studios located in Fort Point in Boston, just a short walk from South Station. As Boston’s largest affordable live-work building, Midway Artist Studios was established in 2005 as a place for artists to live and work affordably in Boston, when the real estate boom swept through Fort Point and displaced hundreds of working artists. Midway Artist Studios is unique and pivotal as the only remaining artist rental building in Fort Point. The rental model allows emerging artists a place to stay and work in Boston, and artists from around the world to come and work in Boston. It encourages the free flow of ideas between disciplines and generations. In 2014, the artists organized themselves to purchase the building, making it a permanent rental artist controlled building, run by a board of directors, elected in part by the artist residents themselves. Visit us online at MidwayArtistStudios.com

Mission: The mission of Midway Artist Studios is: To preserve, in perpetuity, Midway Artist Studios as an affordable artist live-­work building based on the rental model. To be a vital arts building with active resident participation, and to actively participate in, and support, the arts community both in Fort Point and the greater Boston area.

Join us for the opening reception of PROCESS AND PERCEPTION on Friday, September 7th from 6-9 pm! The exhibition will be on view from September 1st-30th. PROCESS AND PERCEPTION is a collection of drawings examining forms of permutation, iteration, time, and blandness. These works convey a place where an infinite potential of imaginings and realizations are possible while providing the viewer with concrete examples of those potentials.
When given over to an audience, the drawings can be imagined
as an experience of that felt time and a vastness of imagined or
concrete space. The works in the show are interconnected in that theyall begin with a form and a process. The artist imagines a space for a procedure to occur while allowing the materials and the process to dictate the result.
The show also includes a sound installation titled "Structures:
Metal". The installation uses resonating sheet metal and examines the architectural and acoustic properties of these objects. The installation will include a set of drawings illustrating the properties of the individual metal pieces and their relation to one another.
