We've launched this new website just in time for the Blind Date 2015 unveiling event. Yet, like all great works of art, this website is a work in progress. Throughout the winter months, we will be adding new content while refining existing text and photography. Please excuse our mess while we work on this exciting new chapter in the history of Water Street Studios.
Visit our Location
Water Street Studios is housed in a 16,000 square-foot historic limestone building in downtown Batavia. The building was renovated to create 26 artist studios, two classrooms, a print lab, and two premier galleries for showcasing fine art. As a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization, Water Street Studios develops artists who share their passion with the wider arts community in the Fox Valley and beyond.
Welcome to Water Street
Join Water Street Studios Today
Welcome to Batavia Artists Association and Water Street Studios, a 501(c)3 not-profit arts organization. Created by a group of artists, the property owners, city officials, and community members, Water Street Studios focuses on extending the arts community in Batavia, the Fox Valley and neighboring communities.
Water Street Studios Philosophy:
The shared dream/vision is to have a central location for artists to rent affordable space and develop their craft, all while having a network of support and inspiration from their neighboring artists. Add to this, the ability to interact with the community through shows, classes, workshops, projects and events… the potential for a shared creativity is simply inspiring.
