Torpedo Factory Art Center Visiting Artist Program

Deadline: February 10, 2013 (RECEIVE) or (HAND DELIVERY)

Visiting Artist Program
Torpedo Factory Art Center

Alexandria, VA
June 1 to August 31, 2013

The Visiting Artist Program is intended as a professional development opportunity for emerging and experienced visual artists, and to expose visitors to a new group of artists and projects. Applicants may apply for a one-, two-, or three-month summer residency. The projects undertaken by Visiting Artists for this self-directed, creative residency must be compatible with available working studio spaces and facilities.

The Visiting Artist will have the opportunity for informal collegial exchanges with Torpedo Factory artists. As part of the program, each Visiting Artist is also asked to give a demonstration, elaborating on his/her work. Visiting Artists will be able to display and sell original artwork and will be provided with workspace.

Each Visiting Artist will pay one-half of the rent of the studio (amounts range between approximately $180 and $480 per month for the Visiting Artist, depending on the studio). The Torpedo Factory Art Center does not have any shared equipment or facilities. All expenses and arrangements related to art materials, equipment, transportation, housing or other requirements are the responsibility of the Visiting Artist.

The Visiting Artist Program is open to all emerging and experienced visual artists over the age of 21 who are not currently Torpedo Factory leaseholders [Torpedo Factory Associates are eligible, and selection will not affect Associate status].

Applicants provide evidence of artistic accomplishment through submitted images and the application form. By applying, applicants agree to: (1) work in front of, and interact with, the public; (2) work in the studio five days a week during the period of the residency (because most of our visitors come on the weekends, we request that Visiting Artists work on those days); and (3) commit to follow the Visiting Artist Program requirements.
