The Houston Center for Contemporary Craft is inviting applications for its 2018-19 Artist Residency Program.
From five to ten residencies of from three to twelve months 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 and twenty-four-hour access to a two-hundred-square-foot artist studio equipped with a sink, telephone, and wireless Internet access. In addition, a wide variety of resources and opportunities, including teaching assignments through HCCC and collaborative works with fellow residents, are also available.
During his/her residency, an artist’s 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 studio twenty-four hours per week and at least two weekends per month during HCCC public hours.
For complete program guidelines, information about current and past residents, and application instructions, see the HCCC website.
