The Houston Center for Contemporary Craft is inviting applications for its 2019-20 Artist Residency Program.
Through the program, up to ten residencies of three to twelve months each will be awarded to craft artists working in wood, glass, metal, fiber, clay, and mixed media.
Each artist will receive a $600 monthly stipend that includes a housing/materials allowance. The residency also provides twenty-four-hour access to two-hundred-square-foot artist studios equipped with sinks, telephones, and wireless Internet access, as well as a wide variety of resources and opportunities, including teaching assignments through HCCC and collaborative works with fellow residents.
During their residency, artists' creative work is represented by HCCC and is considered for display in the Asher Sales Gallery. Additional opportunities include discussions with curators and gallery owners, exposure at HCCC events, and interactions with visiting art professionals; ongoing professional development; and a group exhibition at the end of the residency cycle.
Applicants must be able to fulfill a program requirement of working in their studios twenty-four hours a week and at least two weekends per month during HCCC's public hours.
The center will begin accepting applications on January 1, 2019.
