Darkroom Rentals

Harwood Art Center is proud to provide affordable working spaces to artists who live and work in the greater Albuquerque area. Our darkroom offers an autonomous working environment for photographers interested in black and white photo processing. The facility provides four functional enlargers, several safe lights, timers, drying racks, two sinks and temporary locker storage space. Photographers are responsible to bring their own paper and chemistry.

Darkroom users will share a Google calendar to manage use. Usage can be purchased at $45 per 15 hour time blocks. Time blocks can also be divided into shorter sessions within Google calendar.

We encourage all interested artists who have a need for darkroom rental to complete an application. Apply to use the Darkroom >

Based upon availability, you will be contacted to schedule a site visit and tour of Harwood Art Center after you submit your application. Upon completion of the tour and verified availability of workspace, a member of the Harwood staff will contact references and draft all necessary documents to confirm rental terms and welcome you to our community.

If at any point your needs or availability change please feel free to contact us at (505) 242-6367 to update the status of your application. For more specific questions, please contact Ebony Booth, Programs & Communications Coordinator.

HARWOOD STORIES

SUZANNE SBARGE
SUZANNE SBARGE

Former Director of Harwood

When I started the building was primarily a studio center for artists with very little public programming. The only staff members were the Building Manager Marshall Kovitz and me, and we were both part-time. I worked to expand the reach of Harwood through lots more exhibitions, classes and events, and the Harwood Summer Arts Camp. I focused on community involvement and marketing, which transformed Harwood from a mostly quiet studio center into a public venue that was always buzzing with activity.

I am grateful to the Harwood for launching my career in arts administration over 20 years ago and for serving as the umbrella for 516 ARTS in our first year.
