Artist engagement is what we do! We are seeking artists in pursuit of authentic life inside a community that values art, disability and ministry. Complete the
Artist Registration Form for an interview if you are interested in accessing our studio space. We register artists with and without disabilities through the same process. Each artists completes our registration form and submits it with a one time $10 application fee and a sample of their work. A face-to-face interview determines how the artist will engage in the space and ends with a schedule and commitment from the artist. Artists with disabilities get extra perks that include access to free professional materials, artistic direction and personalized support (attendant care, supervision). Artists without disabilities generally serve back in the community, an average of 4 hours per week (mentoring, cooking, gardening, etc.) All artists access exhibit opportunities and a hot, organic meal fresh from the garden. Some artists choose not to studio with us, but just want to volunteer on a regular schedule. If that is you, then keep reading....
Community based artists are welcome to approach Imagine Art to rent our back gallery or access the space for workshops, events, performances and rehearsals. Contact Debbie for fees associated with artists rentals.

We rely on 3 to 4 volunteers every day to operate. As many as 25 artists might create in our studios on a given day. Each day we are helping the artists in the art-making process. We work hard to create an atmosphere that invites food, fun and fellowship. We need daily garden workers, kitchen cooks and helpers, artist mentors and studio helpers and office assistance. Our space is filled with people and activities and your help is invaluable. If you love creative people and need a fresh change of pace, we are your place! We are a unique cast of characters sure to bring a smile to your face and new story to your dinner table!

We need you to buy art! Our artists are busy creating art and we need collectors to support their efforts. Works created in our studio are affordable, creative and unique. Imagine Art is a place where you can meet the artist at work and walk away with an affordable one-of-a-kind original work of art (painting, drawing, ceramic, mosaic or blown glass). Check out our Current Happenings and attend our next artist reception or just pop in Monday - Friday between 9-4 PM to walk through the gallery.
