For over a decade, 150 Bay Street has provided live-work units to local artists at competitive rates. As part of our on-going evolution, an entire 40,000 sf floor is now being developed as affordable studio space in the heart of Jersey City's Powerhouse Arts District. 


Ranging from 200-1200 square feet, the studios are modern and sleek with great attention paid to details and amenities that will help drive inspiration, collaboration and creativity.


We are seeking to fill the space with skilled, innovative, and actively working artists. ART150 artists will be welcome (but not obligated) to participate in local arts events such as JCAST and JCFridays. We look forward to ART150 becoming a well-known and sought after destination for local artists and arts patrons!


Once you have submitted the entire application, your artwork along with your Resume/ CV and information that you provided within the form will be evaluated by the ART150 Review Committee. The ART150 Review Committee will be made up of gallery directors, independent curators, arts professors, and artists with no conflict of interest. 


Should the ART150 Review Committee recommend your application tenancy at ART150 Studios, GFP Real Estate will then review all of the financial information you provided in your application.

Why do I need to submit examples of my work? 

Samples of your work give us a sense of what we can expect you to use your studio to create. They also help us ensure applicants are actively making work. 

By which criteria are the artworks I submit being evaluated? 

We are looking to fill studios with active artists who demonstrate through their work knowledge of the fundamental principles of the artmaking process. This includes, but is not limited to: 

-Composition

-Color

-Originality 

-Concept or idea

-Use of materials suitable for a shared studio environment

Why is this necessary? 

Studios will be open to the public during such events as the Art and Studio Tour and First Fridays. While you are in no way obligated to participate, the hope is that the artistic community of 150 Bay will take these opportunities to display their work.
