Houston Center for Contemporary Craft Artist Residency Program

Deadline: March 1, 2013 (ONLINE)

Artist Residency Program
Houston Center for Contemporary Craft

Houston, TX
Residency Cycle: September to August

The Artist Residency 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, wood and mixed media. The program is also open to international artists.

Museum visitors have the unique opportunity to visit the artists’ studios and watch the artists at work. The artists receive a unique opportunity to gain exposure, make connections with the Houston community, and help educate the public about craft.

A juried selection is held annually to award five artists a three-to-twelve month residency.

Artists selected for the program receive a 200-square-foot studio, a monthly stipend and a small, quarterly housing/materials allowance. The studios are equipped with sinks, telephones and wireless Internet access.

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

Artists also have access to a wide variety of resources and opportunities, including teaching assignments through HCCC and collaborative works with fellow residents.

During their time as residents, artists’ creative work is represented by HCCC and is considered for display in the Asher Sales Gallery.

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

Application fee: $30
