Regional Emerging Artist-in-Residence

Raleigh, NC
2015/2016 Residency

Established in January 2000, the Regional Emerging Artist Residency provides emerging visual artists with time and space to explore their work in a supportive, thriving, artistic environment at Artspace. Two artists in their early professional careers are chosen from a regional pool of applicants every six months.

The residency includes a private, rent-free studio with 24-hour access. Artspace does NOT provide transportation or living quarters.

Each month residents are presented to the Triangle community during Artspace’s opening receptions and gallery walks. A fully supported exhibition of the resident’s work will be presented in the Artspace lobby after the residency.

The primary focus of the program is to provide an artist with time for independent work, but some participation in Artspace programs is expected. During the residency, artists must contribute to Artspace’s educational programs and tours by working in their studios during business hours, especially during scheduled tours. Resident artists will also be expected to give a presentation, talk, and/or demonstration to the public during their exhibition or 6-month residency.


1. Artspace’s Emerging Artist Residencies are available to promising artists in their formative years committed to advancing their own work and professional careers.

2. Artists must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents over 18 years of age and must currently reside in the Southeast (Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, and West Virginia).

3. Artists working in most mediums will be considered, including experimental media; however, artists working with toxic materials, hazardous machinery, etc. will not be considered due to limitations within the building.

4. Artists must not be enrolled in an institutional program of study, including instructional museum programs, during the residency period. (Applicants may be in school during application process.)

5. Artists must be ready to enjoy working in an open studio setting where the public is able to interact with the artist during public hours. Artists must work in the studio a minimum of 15 hours per week during public hours.
