The StudioWorks Program
Deadline: February 1
Tides Institute & Museum of Art
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.
