The upstairs of the High Street Gallery has been converted to private art studios. When available, the DSA offers them to members first, and if not rented will then advertise the space(s) to the public.

All artwork submitted must be ready to hang or install. Works on paper must be framed and wired OR works on paper can be hung with bull clips. The DSA has plaster and lath walls and uses a hook and rod hanging system. Works that are 12 pounds or less may be hung with 3M Velcro Strips.

Artists working in new media, film, or video will be required to use your own equipment for exhibitions.
