Artist Residencies

Pyramid Atlantic offers fully equipped studios for papermaking, etching, lithography, relief, screen-printing, letterpress, and digital printing. Keyholder residency opportunities support artists who have an interest in printmaking, papermaking and book arts and whose talent deserves to be recognized. The artists provide their own materials. Keyholder resident artists work within the schedule of workshops and scheduled studio activities. They are enriched by the supportive, creative community comprised of artist-staff, interns, other visiting artists, and the public.

Artists of all career-stages--emerging, mid-career, and mature artists--are encouraged to apply for these opportunities. Three artists are selected twice a year for a two-five month residency opportunity (fall and spring). Two artists are selected for the summer months of July and August. Only legal US residents may apply.

• Summer residencies start on July 1 or August 1 (application due 6/20)
• Fall residencies start on September 15th (application due July 15th)
• Spring residencies start on February 1st (application due December 1st)

Keyholders work in a productive atmosphere alongside other contemporary artists. They are required to have working knowledge in the techniques and the equipment they wish to use. Technical assistance is not included in the program, but is available at additional cost. Keyholder resident artists may get technical assistance or private instruction at a 20% discount off the normal rate of $25/hour.

Pyramid Atlantic does not provide housing or financial assistance.
