Regional Emerging Artist Residency
January - July 2007


Established in January 2000, the Regional Emerging Artist Residency is a program that provides emerging visual artists with time and space to explore their work in a supportive, thriving, artistic environment. One artist in his or her early professional career is chosen from a regional pool of applicants.

Artspace grants two 6-month residencies per year in Raleigh, NC. The residency includes a private, rent-free studio with 24-hour access. Artspace does NOT provide transportation or living quarters.

Each month residents will be presented to the Triangle community during Artspace's opening receptions and gallery walk. A fully supported exhibition of the resident's work will be presented in the studio during the final month of the residency.

The primary focus of the program is to provide an artist with time for independent work, but some participation in Artspace programs is expected. During the residency, resident artists must contribute to Artspace's educational programs and tours by working in their studios during business hours, especially during scheduled tours. Resident artists will also be expected to give a presentation, talk, and/or demonstration to the public during the 6-month period.


Artspace's Emerging Artist Residencies are available to promising artists in their formative years committed to advancing their own work and professional careers.
Artists must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents over 18 years of age and must reside in North Carolina.
Artists working in most mediums will be considered.
Artists working with toxic materials, hazardous machinery, etc. will not be considered due to limitations within the building.
Artists must not be currently enrolled in an institutional program of study, including instructional museum programs.
Artists must be ready to enjoy working in an open studio setting where the public is able to interact with the artist during public hours. Artists must work in the studio a minimum of 15 hours per week during public hours.
