About Reis Studios

Reis Studios is a finished workspace for artists featuring over 180 private studios, an art gallery space, an experimental gallery, a dirty room, and a small communal coffee area a collection of art and culture books, and a full loading dock with large industrial elevators servicing all of our three floors.

Reis Studios is a friendly community of over 180 artists from 20 different nations, working as painters, sculptors, photographers, graphic designers, fashion designers, installation artists, video artists and creative people of other disciplines. It was created in January 2002 by the Brazilian artist Juvenal Reis to initiate a community of contemporary artists in what is now New York City’s most exciting emerging arts district, Long Island City.

With a total of 70.000 sq.ft, the professionally built studios range in size from 200 to 1200 sq.ft  of usable space, 12-foot ceilings, sound and thermal insulated walls, and secure metal doors. Every studio is wired for high speed internet and voice over IP capability. Some studios also include telephone connections. Most spaces have windows (although we have windowless studios for those who prefer controlled light), and many spaces include hot and cold running water and switching for track lights.

We celebrated our 10th anniversary in 2012 with the opening of our dedicated art gallery space, ART PLUS LIC.  ART PLUS LIC is a marvellous white-walled space on our 2nd floor with over 2500 sq.ft space for larger projects within our community.
