Studios at RECESS

RECESS offers work studios on the second floor of the Oregon Brass Works building located on 1127 SE 10th Avenue. Our goal is to cultivate a cooperative, affordable, and stable studio environment made up of passionate groups and individuals. RECESS seeks artists, freelance workers, builders, designers, community groups, writers, and like who demonstrate a commitment to their work and a genuine need for affordable studio spaces. We encourage any and all interested parties to apply!

RECESS’s tenancy at the former Oregon Brass Works building in inner SE Portland ended as of May 2014. Since this time, we have had to suspend our studio program as we search for a new space in the Portland area. Establishing a community of working artists, craftspeople and thinkers has become an integral part of our mission and we plan to resume hosting affordable, inclusive studios as soon as we are re-established in a permanent location. We hope to accomplish this goal in 2015.

Until then, please email if you are interested in receiving updates when RECESS has studios available.
