The interior of the Loft was originally built around upholsterer's wooden workbenches with windows looking out onto the Columbia River. In creating individual spaces for artists, we were able to maintain some of that Astoria history and character.
Spaces range from approximately 120-200 square feet. Each has its own power source and window. The flooring is the original, rustic planks. Storage drawers and/or shelving vary by studio.
As a Resident Artist of the Loft, your amenities include 24/7 access, wifi, limited kitchen availability (shared refrigerator and microwave), and shared bathroom. Resident Artists also have the opportunity to share their bio and link to their website on this website.
Rental agreements include a first and last month's payment along with a refundable security deposit.
Resident Artists are also invited to show their work at least one time per year in our Gallery's Resident Exhibit. Arrangements for shows are subject to the Loft Management's and the Artist's agreement.
Given the open nature of the facility, and as a courtesy to our other Resident Artists, we ask for references and may conduct a limited background check.
The Loft is unable to accommodate art involving open flame, kilns, noxious fumes, and heavier equipment.
