Resident Artist Studios Available

Studio #3 available now.

A rare opportunity to be part of our artists’ community…

SmallstudioWEBThe Mt. Airy Art Garage is created and run by those who love art, love their community, and believe in dreaming together to make things happen.

There are many available studios in the Philadelphia area. So, we asked our artists “Why the Mt Airy Art Garage (MAAG)? What was it about this place that made you want to have your studio here?” And this is what we heard:

  • “If I want privacy, I can close my studio door. But at the same time, I can open my door and collaborate with the steady flow of fellow artists that come to be a part of the MAAG experience.”
  • “Where else could I rent a studio while simultaneously having the opportunity to be a part of POST, Holiday Art Markets, and other activities?”
  • “I can do my work while expanding my client base as art lovers come to visit MAAG.”
  • “It’s clean, there’s A/C and heat, the natural light in my studio is just wonderful, and it’s an installation space.”
  • But most of all we hear “I don’t want to be isolated. I want to be in the midst of a community of artists.”

And that’s what we’re all about here at MAAG.

Be part of one of Northwest Philadelphia’s thriving arts hub. We’re located in the midst of the Mt. Airy commercial corridor and within one to three blocks from all public transportation (see Directions). 

All studios have massive windows that let natural light pour in; and the building offers a unique setting to inspire creativity – exposed brick walls and a high ceiling with wood beams, ductwork, industrial overhead lighting and fans. The front entry can open wide for moving large items, and the building provides handicapped accessible bathrooms and central heat/air.

Studio2WEBAll studios rent to MAAG members only; so if you’re not a member, now is a good time to join. Want to share your studio with another artist? That’s fine. Interested? Now is the time.

Studio # 3 (currently available) has 165 sq. ft. and rents for $330/mo.

In addition to a space for your own work, you’ll have access to a large and supportive community of artists. MAAG is home to Resident Artist Studios, the Solomon Levy Gallery and Gift Shop, artist-driven workshops and events, fine art and handcraft markets, The Swerve, Quilt Clubs, Visual Artists’ Circles, Writer’s Clubs, and more! At the end of the day, our goal is to provide communal space for artistic creativity, collaboration, and celebration.
