Post Studio applications will open on November 1, 2019. Stay tuned for more information.

The deadline for individual Studio Space is now closed.



Ranging in size from 100 to over 600 square feet our studio spaces accommodate artists at different stages of their careers and artists with different studio practices.  Between the two floors there are a total of 21 studios.

Studios are dedicated to visual artists of different ages, socioeconomic backgrounds, ethnicities, career trajectories, genders, sexuality and artistic practices. STABLE is committed to a cohort of artists that is reflective of the broader community.




STABLE will not have equipment on site (wood shop, printer, ect…). However, in partnership with Halcyon, artists in STABLE studios will have access to the Halcyon wood shop. We continue to build partnerships that will benefit our artists and the greater arts community in Washington DC.



STABLE studios are open 24/7 for artists, but are not open to the public. The gallery, when it opens this spring, will be open to the public.


open studios

STABLE will host a number of open studio events per year, which will be open to the public. This program will be an important part of how STABLE makes the arts community of the DC area visible to the broader community.


post studio

The post studio co-working space allows 12 individuals who don’t require traditional studios to have desk space within the STABLE complex. This space is available to artists, independent curators, and art writers.



In addition to hosting cutting edge contemporary art exhibitions, the Gallery space is run in collaboration with partnering institutions, providing opportunities for community and neighborhood events.


will I be able to show my work in the gallery?  

The Gallery is run separately from the studio program, in collaboration with partnering institutions and guest curators. STABLE founders and staff will facilitate curatorial partnerships for the gallery space but will not play a role in choosing which artists’ works will be featured in the gallery.


how long will I have my studio?

The studio space is intended to be long-term. At the end of each year there will be a conversation to ensure the space is being utilized, and that the partnership between STABLE and the artist is rewarding and successful.


am I required to use my space for a certain number of hours per week?

STABLE doesn’t require artists to use their studios for a set number of hours. However, STABLE is an active community of working visual artists and we ask that STABLE artists use their studios regularly.
