An Artist Collective with 17 Artists in Residence, a Gallery and Performance Space
The Center is a 7,000-square-foot space inside the Civil-War-era Beard Street Warehouse building in Red Hook, Brooklyn. It contains 16 visual artist work spaces, a recording studio, a shared work area with tools and other equipment, an art gallery, and a stage for performances. One-year leases are granted to 15 artist tenants, who are known as the facility's “residents” and receive, in addition to 24 hour access to their work spaces, a number of other benefits including free wi-fi, electricity, use of common areas and tools, permanent links to their personal websites from the Hot Wood Arts website, and constant exposure to viewers. Each work space is fitted with a glass door, so tenants can curate the visible portion of their studios as they see fit, as if they had an ongoing, year-round gallery show. During gallery shows, the facility is open to the public from 1:00 – 6:00 on Saturdays and Sundays (by appointment at all other times).
