K Space Art Studios operates independently from K Space Contemporary. K Space Contemporary (the 501c3 non-profit organization) was founded by K Space Art Studio members, so although the businesses are separate, the two entities remain connected through friendship, camaraderie, and the love of art.  K Space Art Studios is a cooperative space managed by long-time studio artists Gerald Lopez, Jimmy Pena, and Day Wheeler who are responsible for reviewing and selecting artists and scheduling or creating exhibitions in the Schaudies Gallery.  Therefore, to rent studio space or to exhibit in the Schaudies Gallery, artists must contact K Space Art Studios as outlined below.


K Space Art Studios accepts contemporary visual artists in all media. A Portfolio Review is required. Artists must be age 21+. Studio artists have access to their studios 24 hours a day, 7 days per week. K Space Art Studios are open monthly for the downtown ArtWalk. Additional exhibition opportunities are available in the Schaudies Gallery.
