Our primary focus rests on the security and well being of our Artist Members. By providing Artists with affordable, rent-controlled studios where displacement is a non-concern, artists are free to concentrate on their creative practice. An open studio model, used in all Radiant Hall studio locations, is designed to encourage our members to actively engage with one-another through artistic collaboration, shared knowledge and communal resources. Artist members who fully engage with their studios will not only benefit from secure, energized working environments, but will also be provided with opportunities to develop and improve their professional practices.
Some of our Member benefits:
Bi-Monthly Happy Hours
Every other month Radiant Hall presents the opportunity to meet new members, share ideas, and enjoy each other’s company at a local spot. Happy hours rotate among the three neighborhoods to give everyone a chance to participate. We highly encourage you to meet your fellow members and connect for the possibilities such networking presents!
Online Artist Profile
Radianthall.com features a gallery of each studio location’s current artists with a bio, a photo of their work, and personal website link.
Inclusion in Spring & Fall Open Studios
Radiant Hall holds Open Studios twice a year, once in the Fall, once in the Spring. These events are opportunities for the public, patrons, friends, and family to tour our locations, meet the artists, and establish connections that can be beneficial to all. Artists are encouraged to be on site to make new contacts, promote themselves, and greet Radiant Hall supporters.
Artist Event Promotions
Members can request promotion for their exhibition, artist talk, or happening through Radiant Hall via an online form. Artists are encouraged to send details, links, and photos so that Radiant Hall can promote their event.
1:1 Studio Critiques
Rotating through the different studios, Radiant Hall offers half-hour visits with local and touring curators, writers, artists, and critics - all with no cost to members! These critiques provide the artist with a different perspective on their current work, and allow for critical insight and reflection. 1:1 Studio Visits are held on the first Sunday of every month and rotate between RH locations. Space is limited so keep an eye out for the newsletter with signup slots.
The current artist monthly newsletter has all the details about Radiant Hall events such as Artist Happy Hours, 1:1 critiques, and upcoming promotions. It also features a list of recommended shows to view, open call/grant/other opportunities to apply for, and an artist spotlight Q&A. We’re always looking for things to include, so shoot us an email with your addition!
Professional Studio Photos
As a part of Open Studios, professional photographers will make their way through each studio and take high quality photos of each artist in their space. Photographs are made available to artists for their own use as well.
Mattress Factory's Urban Garden Party
The Mattress Factory's Urban Garden Party is their premiere summer fundraising event, featuring local food and drinks, DJ, live performances, and plenty of VIPs. Through a contribution from Scott and Sue Lammie, Radiant Hall is a sponsor of the event, and gets to invite all RH members to attend for free!
