Call for Spring 2022 BFA Exhibitions at Stormwater Studios

Senior BFA students can now apply for a 1-week exhibition in the SVAD Studio at Stormwater Studios, a private studio space in downtown Columbia, SC.

Students receive 24/7 access to the studio over their exhibition period.  Students will be provided an online exhibition webpage at as part of their exhibition and must provide photos or videos to complete the virtual part of their exhibition.

Apply using this online form by 5:00 p.m. on February 7, 2022.


What if I don’t know my exhibition title yet?

That’s okay! Students can always finalize their show title at a later time. The important thing is to get a time slot reserved for your exhibition.

What if I haven’t made all of the work for it yet?

That is also okay. You can keep working on all of your pieces until your exhibition slot. You can later decide exactly how many pieces you want to include.

I'm really busy this semester; what if I'm not sure when I want to have my show?

You can provide your top three occupancy weeks on the application. We have slots available from mid-February through early April so that you can accommodate your show within a busy class schedule.

What kind of recommendation is necessary?

You should ask a professor who knows you in the studio classroom or from other areas at SVAD. The recommendation should be an email from the faculty member to Bailey Watts.

Should I apply? I don’t have much experience installing art.

Yes! You should still apply. You will learn how to install and photograph your work in this experience. You can experiment with exhibition design, layout, and photography of your works. It also looks great on your resume!

Can someone be present at Stormwater to help me install?

Yes, you can have a helper in the studio.

Contact Bailey Watts,, with any additional questions.
