Regional Emerging Artist-in-Residence
October 6, 2014 (January – July 2015 Residency)
March 30, 2015 (July 2015 – January 2016 Residency)
Established in January 2000, the Regional Emerging Artist Residency provides emerging visual artists with time and space to explore their work in a supportive, thriving, artistic environment at Artspace in Raleigh, North Carolina. Two artists in their early professional careers are chosen from a regional pool of applicants every six months.
The primary focus of the program is to provide an artist with time for independent work, but some participation in Artspace programs is expected. During the residency, artists must contribute to Artspace’s educational programs and tours by working in their studios during business hours, especially during scheduled tours. Resident artists will also be expected to give a presentation, talk, and/or demonstration to the public during their exhibition or 6-month residency.
