Private Studios

Redux is home to Charleston’s most creative artists. Each artist at Redux concentrates on developing a personal artistic vision. Redux’s exhibitions and related programs serve as a resource where studio artists are regularly exposed to visiting artists, artist lectures, and most importantly the ideas of their neighbors.

The Redux Studio Program offers emerging and mid-career artists 24-hour access to professional artist studios. Individuals work in a productive atmosphere alongside other visual artists. The combined 7,200 sq. ft. space is equipped with 16 individual artist studios. The studios range from 75 - 240 square feet, and studio rent is priced per square foot. Redux is home to Charleston's only public darkroom and print shop.

As of August 7, 2016, we are pleased to announce that we are accepting applications for our new location at 1056 King Street, where we will have 40 studios, an expanded photography center, print shop, classroom, and almost 2,000 square feet of exhibition and performance space in our new home. Projected occupancy is April 1, 2017.

We are always looking to grow and expand our community, because we know that all great artists learn from other great artists. We are happy to give tours of the space, with an appointment. To learn more about how you can join our community of artists, please call 843.722.0697 or email
