Welcome to Batavia Artists Association and Water Street Studios (BAA/WSS), a 501(c)3 not-profit arts organization. Created by a group of artists, the property owners, city officials, and community members, BAA/WSS focuses on extending the arts community in Batavia, the Fox Valley and neighboring communities.

Water Street Studios Philosophy: The shared dream/vision is to have a central location for artists to rent affordable space and develop their craft, all while having a network of support and inspiration from their neighboring artists. Add to this, the ability to interact with the community through shows, classes, workshops, projects and events… the potential for a shared creativity is simply inspiring.
