The Summer Artist-in-Residence Program at Artspace in Raleigh, NC, provides an established artist with a brief studio opportunity to work on a specific project. Each summer an artist is invited to work in Gallery One in an open-studio setting for 4 weeks. During this time the artist is required to teach one adult workshop and one youth class as part of the Summer Arts Program. The residency culminates in a six-week exhibition of the artist’s work in Gallery One. The intent of the residency is to provide fresh insight about various artists techniques and processes of art-making that are not common within the Artspace community.
There is a $25 application fee. For complete guidelines, contact the Director of Programs & Exhibitions, Lia Newman, by e-mail at (firstname.lastname@example.org), call 919/821-2787 or visit (www.artspacenc.org).
