Print Studio Artist-in-Residence
We are seeking applicants for our Artist-in-Residence program. Each quarter, the Print Studio awards an artist with three months of free Print Studio Membership, with 24-hour access to the studio, so he or she can create a cohesive body of work that will be exhibited in the studio during the First Friday Art Walk at the end of their residency session. Their art will be shown throughout the month after their First Friday exhibition. The AIR is required to spend 45 hours working in the Print Studio during AAC business hours during their session. The AIR can exhibit and sell their work in the studio and is asked to hold a weekly Open Lab for which he or she earns income as an instructor.
Applications will be available for the January – March 2014 Winter Session soon.
