Deadline: March 19, 2009 (POSTMARK)

Houston Center For Contemporary Craft

Houston, TX

Houston Center for Contemporary Craft (HCCC) is a non-profit arts organization dedicated to presenting the dynamic world of contemporary craft to the Houston community. The Artist-in-Residence program is designed to offer time and space for craft artists to focus on their creative work and interact with the public.

The program supports emerging, mid-career, and established artists working in all craft media, including but not limited to: clay, fiber, glass, metal, and wood.

Artists will be selected based on the quality of their creative work, the ability to interact with the public, career direction, and program diversity.

Artists selected for the program will receive a 200 sq. ft. studio and a monthly stipend.
The studios are equipped with sinks, telephones and internet DSL access.

In addition to a studio space and stipend, participating artists will have access to a wide variety of resources and opportunities, including teaching opportunities at HCCC, representation in the Asher Gallery and collaborative opportunities with other Artists-in-Residence.

To support artistic development, the program also offers additional opportunities such as discussions with curators and gallery owners, exposure at HCCC events, and interactions with visiting art professionals.
