The UAS studios were initially formed in 1993 by graduating students of the Alberta College of Art & Design who were looking to create a community space where they could learn, grow, and produce work in an environment that was collaborative and supportive.
Today, being part of the UAS studios allows artists to gain access to networking and exhibition opportunities, studio visits with curators, participation in Artwalk activities, and all of the educational and event initiatives held as part of UAS programming.
UAS studio members pay rent based on the square footage of their studio space. Rent includes all utilities and a public access computer. Studios are private and secure.
UAS releases calls for interest when studio spaces become available.
Studios are accessible 24 hours per day with no holiday closures. There is a large freight elevator to assist studio members in bringing large items into the space and a loading dock at the back of the building. Please note that individual studios are only accessible by a normal sized doorway.
UAS is a non-toxic environment, oil paint is permitted with low-fume solvents or linseed oil. No materials that emit toxic fumes are permitted in the studios, any spraying can be done on the loading dock.
Untitled Art Society aims to support Calgary's arts communities by maintaining and programming various facilities including affordable studio space.
