Emmanuel College
Boston, MA

The Emmanuel College Art Department offers an eight-week artists residency to four artists each summer. The residency supports a diverse group of artists, providing time and space for established and emerging artists to develop their work.

Residents should be willing to support and interact with each other, students, and faculty.

The residency defines Emmanuel College as a leader in the visual arts and brings greater visibility to that leadership role beyond the confines of the College

The StudioWorks Program

The StudioWorks Program
Deadline: February 1

Tides Institute & Museum of Art
Eastport, ME

Founded in 2013 and now in its seventh year, The StudioWorks Artist-in-Residence Program at the Tides Institute & Museum of Art (TIMA) offers residency opportunities to visual artists from the U.S. and abroad to deepen and develop their practice within a community setting. Our studios, museum and housing are located within the historic downtown and working waterfront of Eastport, Maine and overlook the U.S./Canada boundary. TIMA’s downtown StudioWorks building contains private studios, common work areas, and a ground floor printmaking and letterpress studio.

The StudioWorks program mission, supported by two national awards from ARTPLACE, is to place the arts in the center of the community, utilizing the arts and artists to foster, engage, and create a vital and vibrant downtown. A StudioWorks residency provides an artist with a unique experience to play an active role in our creative community through socially engaged projects, educational outreach or public programming.

Housing for visiting artists is provided in two adjacent buildings, the Veterans Memorial Hall / Royal Art Lodge and the Rathlin House, located one block away from StudioWorks and the museum. Applications to this year’s program are reviewed by a jury panel and decisions are generally announced 4-6 weeks following the deadline; on or about March 15, 2019. Applications are accepted only through Submittable.

University of Michigan Roman J. Witt Artist-in-Residence

Roman J. Witt Artist-in-Residence
Deadline: January 31

University of Michigan
Ann Arbor, MI

The mission of the Roman J. Witt Residency Program is to support the production of new work in collaboration with the Stamps School of Art & Design community. The program awards one residency per academic year for a visiting artist/designer to work at the school to develop a new work in collaboration with students and faculty.

A singular feature of the 2019-2020 Witt Residency is the Stamps School’s collaboration with the University of Michigan Museum of Art (UMMA), who will provide a highly visible gallery in the museum — the Stenn Gallery — as an installation and workspace for the Witt Resident. The artist/designer will spend a good portion of the week working in this gallery (a minimum of three days, with 6 hours per day during museum open hours), creating and installing a work of art that will remain on view. This act of “public making” is an exemplary teaching tool and provides the Stamps School community and the university at large with the opportunity to witness and partake in the creation of a defined work from concept to completion with the artist in residence.

The Irving Stenn, Jr. Family Gallery is the museum’s glass-walled temporary exhibition space devoted to cutting-edge contemporary installation art. At ground level with two walls of transparent glass, the artist/designer will be on view when working in the Stenn Gallery. It is situated at the corner of a major circulation path on campus, called the “Diag.” Submitted proposals should suggest how the artist/designer plans to deploy the converging factors of the gallery into a vibrant, collaborative, and memorable residency. This, along with the completed final artwork, will strongly determine selection of the artist/designer. It is expected that a significant portion of time in the gallery space will be spent with direct interaction with students. Ideas for student interactions include but are not limited to: allowing students to work with the artist/designer; be in dialogue with the artist/designer; provide critiques on student work; engage in student-led interviews; or allowing for student observation of artist/designer’s process. Creative methods of engagement to animate the gallery space as a focal point of campus activity are highly encouraged.

The residency is expected to culminate in the realization of the proposed work, as well as its presentation. At the end of the residency, the artist/designer’s installation in the Stenn Gallery will remain on view for two weeks, before any de-installation. De-installation is the responsibility of the artist/designer: the work created is the property of the artist. Please see gallery plan and protocols.

Arteles Creative Center: Back to Basics Residency

Back to Basics Residency
Deadline: January 10

Arteles Creative Center
Hämeenkyrö, Finland

Back to Basics residency program gives artists the opportunity to clear their mind, get back to focus and (re)discover the very basis of their creative practice and being. The residency program urges you to block the usual ways of escapism and be present where you are, and to see how that improves your concentration skills, creativity and productivity. In order to make this happen, internet access and mobile use is limited in this program, and the residents have the possibility to participate in daily meditation sessions (see program details below).

Summer season is ideal for exploring and getting inspired by the rich nature surrounding Arteles Creative Center. There are countless forests, fields, lakes and small countryside roads in the region. Thanks to Finland’s everyman’s rights, they can all be explored freely.

Midsummer is full of light: even in the middle of the night, it’s bright enough to go for a walk in the forest. In September, the autumn is already approaching with misty mornings and starry skies. Seasonal berries and mushrooms can be picked from the yard and the woods, and when it’s time to get relaxed, the residency center’s traditional wood-burning sauna is the place to go to.

In this residency program, participants are encouraged to not have a predetermined project plan to follow, but to arrive with an open mind and dedicate their time at the residency for on-site observations, ideas, conversations, self-reflection and development. With support from the program structure and other participants, Back to Basics provides an intensive residency experience far away from everyday distractions, surrounded by peaceful and beautiful nature.

Lucid Art Foundation Artist-in-Residence

Lucid Art Foundation Artist-in-Residence
Deadline: November 19

Inverness, CA

The Lucid Art Foundation encourages exploration of nonrepresentational art through multimedia, conceptual, ecological, and interdisciplinary approaches. During the three-week residency, artists will have the opportunity to explore the practice of lucid art, with special emphasis on the integration of art, process, and inner awareness. Through this practice, a deeper foundation is created that fosters individual artistic growth and development, as well as the understanding of the artist’s role in society.

The goal of the Lucid Art Residency Program is to provide artists from Canada and the United States with a serene, retreat-like natural environment for creative exploration and inquiry into arts and consciousness. Eligible artists must have an MFA or equivalent in independent studio work. Artists working in the visual arts, video/new media, music composition, and choreography will be considered.

The residency provides a space to live in (the former studio of the late writer Jacqueline Johnson) and a 650-square-foot art studio called “the Ark.” The Ark was built in 1960 and was a former studio of painter Gordon Onslow Ford and mixed media artist Fariba Bogzaran. The large studio pictured above has a wood burning fireplace, restroom, sink, high ceilings with upper loft, wood walls, skylights, and a private deck off the sliding glass patio doors. The cottage has WiFi, a bedroom, a living room, 2 bathrooms, wood burning stove, continuous wooden deck, and a full kitchen stocked with necessary cooking utensils. Parking and laundry facilities are on-site. There is also a print shop with a Sturges press available for use by artists who are experienced printmakers. Only water based mediums may be used on the press.

During the residency, artists have the opportunity to meet and dialogue with a Lucid Art professional artist associate who will give feedback on the work created during the residency. Artists will have access to the Foundation’s extensive Library Resource Center. The Library contains books by many modern, surrealist, and contemporary artists, such as Roberto Matta, Gordon Onslow Ford, Wolfgang Paalen, Remedios Varo, John Anderson, Lee Mullican, and Morris Graves, among others.

Eligible artists must have an MFA or equivalent in independent studio work. Artists working in the visual arts, video/new media, music composition, and choreography will be considered. A short biography and recent résumé of artistic activities (exhibitions, performances, publications, etc.) from the last five years is required with the application, as well as an artist’s statement providing information about the work in relation to the mission of the Lucid Art Foundation (max. 1,000 characters). Submission of ten images of work created within the last two years for visual arts or one video (max 60MB) or one audio file (max 30MB) from the last two years for new media/video, music composition, and choreography is also required.

Artists arrange for their own transportation to and from the Lucid Art Foundation. There is no stipend and meals are not provided during the residency, but artists are welcome to harvest from the Foundation’s organic garden. A weekly lunch will be scheduled with staff, artist associates, or scholars.

Once a year, the Lucid Art Foundation will curate a show of the residency artists’ work at a local community art gallery. The artists will be asked to submit one or two works from the residency period or after. The artists are responsible for delivering the works to the gallery, and when the show ends, the artists are responsible for picking up their artwork or paying the shipping costs for them to be returned. Each artist will receive 50% of the proceeds of any sales. The remaining 50% of the proceeds will be split between the Foundation and the gallery.
