Sprouting Spaces 2023

Understanding that the most critical and limiting component in an artist’s career is being able to afford space to create, Clementina Arts Foundation started a program to help artists land studio space in commercial vacancies—for free.

These spaces help the landlord through awareness of the location, involve the surrounding community with an open door policy, and provide emerging/mid-career artists with much-needed space to create.

Artist in Residence

The Artist-in-Residence Program (AIR) at the Center for Contemporary Printmaking takes place in the recently remodeled Helen Frankenthaler Printmaking Cottage. Within this space artists have the opportunity to produce a body of work in a supportive atmosphere for creative growth and development —using traditional as well as innovative printmaking techniques. The intention of the residency is to offer artists uninterrupted time and privacy 24/7 in a well-equipped studio with onsite living accommodations. This residency has proven to be an ideal opportunity for experimentation and collaboration. Artists can add to their work practice, explore new mediums, create an edition, or otherwise advance their printmaking skills.
