Sunset Art Studios is a social practice studio, residency and gallery run by Rachel Rushing and Emily Riggert.

Since opening in May of 2016 Sunset has increased access to the arts in South Dallas.

We do this by:
  • Removing economic barriers to producing work through providing free studio space in the Sunset Residency Program.
  • Removing geographic and social barriers to seeing art and engaging with artists for residents of the southern Dallas neighborhood of Oak Cliff through free community arts programming. 
  • Providing low-cost artist studios in our Artist Sustainability Program.
So why Patreon?

1. For the Artists-  
We want to be able to continue operating the Sunset Residency and offer free and low-cost studio space to artists who can't afford their own. 
2. For the Community-  We want to keep working in our community to provide free arts programming in an approachable way
3. For the Partnerships- We want to keep finding new ways to bring the arts to our area in a meaningful way by partnering with other groups like The Meet Shop OC, a local literary and community gathering space focused on the cultural and literary arts, and the Texas Organizing Project, a non-profit that promotes social and economic equality for low to moderate income Texans through community and electoral organizing.
