We have been working diligently for the last several weeks to make Artspace a safe environment to experience art and the creative process up close. We are now prepared to open our building to visitors by appointment.


Know before you go

  • Appointments must be made at least one week prior to visiting. You can make an appointment by calling 919.821.2787 or by filling out this form.
  • Available appointment days/times are Tuesday-Friday between 10am-4pm.
  • Your visit can be self-guided or you can request a guided tour.
  • Not all studio artists will be available when visiting. We will inform studio artists of all scheduled appointments and encourage them to be present.
  • You can make appointments with individual artists to visit their studios independently of a visit to Artspace. Please contact the artist directly to schedule a single studio visit.

For your safety

  • All visitors, artists, and staff are required to wear masks when in common areas of the building.
  • Please practice physical distancing and maintain six feet of separation from artists and other visitors.
  • Individual studios may have different requirements for visitors. Please check with the artist before entering their studio.
  • At this time, we are limiting the numbers of visitors in the building at any given time to 10.
  • Hand sanitizer dispensers are located throughout the building and disposable masks are available at the front desk.

We will continue to communicate the status of our open hours, upcoming programs, classes and events via our website, social media and email communications.

We are continuing to work on new ways to engage with us virtually:

  • Sign up for our enews for our weekly Ways to Engage eNews, with free virtual art education projects for youth and adults, in depth looks at artwork in our current exhibitions, virtual tours and more!
  • Check out our Online Resources page with art activities and lessons that you can do at home

Artspace is free and open to the public. Donations are much appreciated. Suggested donation is $5.


Tours are held Tuesdays – Fridays between the hours of 11:00am and 3:30pm. Docent-led tours generally last one hour with an introduction to the building and the organization, information about each exhibit, and a visit with several artists in their studios. Tours must be small groups (10-15 people) and all youth tours are required to have a minimum of two adult chaperones.

Please give Artspace at least 30 days notice for your tour, so that we are able to schedule docents and artists to be available. Please fill out the Tour Request Form set up your tour today!

Field trip organizers should preview the exhibitions to assure the content in each gallery is appropriate for your group. If you have any questions or concerns please contact Education + Outreach Manager, Brittany Carlson
