Artspace: Summer Artist-In-Residence Program — July 2008

DEADLINE: October 1, 2007

The Artist In Residence program at Artspace is intended to provide an artist with a brief studio opportunity to work on a project of his/her choosing and to interact with the public and the artist community. It is also an opportunity for an artist to exhibit his/her work for 4 to 6 weeks immediately following the residency. During the residency period, the artist teaches 2 classes or workshops in conjunction with the Artspace Summer Arts Program (ASAP), and presents a short talk and discussion each week to the ASAP students. During the exhibition period, the artist presents a general lecture or demonstration about his/her own work or a related topic during the opening reception for his/her exhibition.

Artspace is a non-profit visual art center which offers the public the unique opportunity to visit and interact with over 40 working artists in their studios. We have been recognized for presenting award-winning exhibitions in three exhibition galleries that feature regional, national, and international artists.
Arts education is a vital focus at Artspace. Regular education programs include artist lectures, gallery talks, workshops and classes for adults and youth, and weekly life drawing sessions.
