About the art studios at Faultline Artspace
Faultline Artspace is a loose collective of artists working in a shared space with individual studios. Since we started Faultline Artspace in 2011, we have created our own creative community, full of vibrant and passionate artists. We are mostly painters, printmakers, conceptual artists, and sculptors. We are full and part time artists that are interested in maintaining an active and supportive community. There are about 21 individual spaces and we are limited to 30 artists or less. Faultline Artspace is artist run and our location was partly chosen for the beautiful light.

What we are looking for in applicants
We’re really looking for people that are engaged and will be engaged with the community here at Faultline, as well as Oakland, the Bay Area and beyond. There is a lot of common space and comradery at our studios, which encourages the flow of ideas between artists. For this reason we appreciate artists with a voice and vision that can contribute to the conversation. We expect most of our artists to come to the art openings in our gallery to show support for our colleagues. Openings are a great time to open your studio and engage the public about your work. Most of our artists are eager to participate and feel the community is the whole point of having a studio here, so we want other people that feel the same way. If you want to work in a vacuum and ignore everyone, Faultline wouldn’t be a good fit.
We have a very diverse group as far as backgrounds and art styles go, but most of us are focused on painting, drawing, printmaking, sculpture, and digital art, illustration, etc. Please note we are not able to accept commercial screen printers (apparel or posters), video editors, sound designers, or other non-fine art disciplines or businesses.
