As raw space was transformed in October 1980, the first ten artists of the newly developed Artists West Association presented their work to the public during Art Week in Waltham, Massachusetts. After a year of searching for effective working space and community, the second floor of a historic mill building beside the Charles River was given new direction and purpose. Where once workers and machines processed textiles from raw materials, sculptors, fiber artists, painters, printmakers and photographers found space and time to create works of art.

Today, the fifteen studios of Artists West Association continue to be a place for possibilities. Surrounded and part of the artists of the Waltham Mills Artists Association, AWA is a community-- a diverse, creative hive, where long stretches of solitude and focus encounter bursts of inspiration and lively exchange. A sanctuary, with good light and great vibes. The space itself is a historic medium which supports our dreams, our work, and the productive continuum of making in this place.
