Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts Artists-in-Residence

Deadline: February 1, 2014 (ONLINE)

Artists-in-Residence Program
Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts

Gatlinburg, TN
June 2014 to May 2015

The Arrowmont Artists-in-Residence Program provides early career, self-directed artists time, space and support to experiment and develop a new body of work in a creative supportive community environment of 160 rotating visiting workshop artists/instructors, national and regional media conferences/symposia and hundreds of students. The program encourages early career artists who embrace community and enjoy working in a team environment to apply.

Each year, five artists working in different media are selected to participate in the 11-month program, which begins in mid-June and continues through late May of the following year. Artists are given a monthly stipend, shared housing with private bedrooms and meals (during workshop sessions), and a private well lit studio with climate control, a basic work table, shelving and sink. Professional development opportunities and teaching opportunities are made available though funding and networking sources. At the conclusion of the program, residents exhibit their work collectively in the Arrowmont main gallery and have opportunities to sell their work through Arrowmont’s Artist Outfitters Store.

The ideal candidate for the Arrowmont Artists-in-Residence Program is an early career, self-motivated individual able to work well independently and within a larger organization. The successful resident is eager to be involved with Arrowmont's diverse existing program offerings such as workshops, conferences, community partnerships and exhibitions. Candidates who enjoy the team spirit in working with staff, other residents and visiting artists/instructors are encouraged to apply. The five artists selected each year work in a variety of media which reflects the strength of Arrowmont workshop offerings and resources. The Arrowmont Artists-in-Residence Program is open to permanent residents of the United States.

Fee (USD): $35.00
