Wayfarers is an artist-run studio program, arts space, and psychic home base for creative action. We support the development of experimental work through innovative exhibitions, lectures, screenings, performances, and other cultural programming, all of which are free and open to the public. We foster community by providing affordable studios, workspace and equipment access, as well as organizing exhibition opportunities, critical discussions and social events for members, all of whom who are directly involved with the operations of Wayfarers. We function as a non-profit under the fiscal sponsorship of Fractured Atlas, a 501c3. 


Private Space Membership:
8' X 12' with lots of clean, white wall space and wood or concrete floors. These spaces are $462/month and there is currently one available.

“Ghost” Membership:
Wayfarers also has several spots available for "Ghost Members." Ghost membership comes with all the benefits of general membership (including participation in group exhibitions and in crits) except for a designated working space. (A storage cubby for work in progress is provided.) Ghost membership fees are $122/month.

In addition to their work spaces, Wayfarers offers members wifi throughout the building, a complete wood shop, silkscreen facilities, exposure table, spray booth, and a kitchen/commons area. Studio members at Wayfarers have 24-hour access to the facilities. 

Exhibition Opportunities: 
All members in good standing are eligible to participate in annual member shows in the on-site gallery and in Bushwick Open Studios. After active participation in the program for one year, Wayfarers private space members are eligible to participate in a one or two person show. All members are eligible to exhibit in national and international "Exchange" exhibitions with other collectives organized by Wayfarers Advisory Board. Members also receive free admission to paid events and discounts on any purchases from the gallery and are able to reserve the gallery for pop-ups, installations, etc. in between exhibitions.

Critic in Residence: 
Wayfarers members select one professional critic annually to conduct quarterly critiques. All private space members and Ghosts are eligible to present their work to the Wayfarers community for critique. Our current Critic in Residence is sculptor Taylor Baldwin, Asst. Prof. at Rhode Island School of Design.
