Frequently Asked Questions


Can I submit my artwork for exhibition even if I don't have a studio space?

Absolutely!  If you are a member of VASA you will have opportunities to apply for participation in member group exhibitions, whether you are a resident artist or not.  Read the VASA newsletter for information on upcoming opportunities.

Calls for Artists are regularly issued by VASA to all artists in the St. Albert and surrounding areas. Submissions of proposals by solo artists and groups for exhibitions in the VASA gallery are accepted through this process.

Studio Space

What are the benefits of studio space?

Here's what our resident artists say about the benefit of renting studio space:

"It's great to have a committed work space outside my home."

"Studio space enables me to really focus on my work without the distractions of home."

"I get great exposure and get to meet lots of people who want to talk about my artwork."

"I can share ideas with other artists and feel less isolated as an artist."

How much does studio space cost?

Studio rents are based on an equal share of the common areas and a proportional share of the studio space, based on studio size.
Currently, studio spaces range between $100 and $350 per month.

How do I apply for studio space?

To apply to rent one of our studio spaces you must be a member of VASA (refer to the membership page for details).  An application will result in your addition to the waiting list for artist studios when they become available.
