Eligibility:

Summer Artist-in-Residence Program

June 1 - August 7, 2020 (10 weeks)

Application Deadline: March 8, 2020

Application Fee: $30.00 USD

Notifications Begin: March 23, 2020

Program Overview: GoggleWorks Center for the Arts will offer three residencies this summer to outstanding visual artists who will spend 10-weeks, from June 1 - August 7, on our campus developing a project/body of work. The Summer Artist-In-Residence Program was created to infuse new, creative energy to the GoggleWorks' community with an emphasis on facilitating cross-disciplinary experimentation. The residency provides personal studio space, access to GoggleWorks' eight communal studios (ceramics, warm glass, hot glass, photography, printmaking, metalsmithing, wood, and V.R. Lab), and a culminating exhibition showcasing the residents' work. Applicants can choose to submit a project-based application or portfolio-based application. Selection of residents is highly competitive and based on the strength of the applicant's project proposal and/or quality of work and experience. Residents should be self-motivated and enthusiastic, early in their artistic career, dedicated to their artwork, and enjoy working with other people in a communal studio setting.

The Summer Artist-in-Residence Program provides:

  • Studio space with 24/7 access (fully-funded)
  • Access to GoggleWorks' eight communal studios
  • Shared, furnished housing conveniently located across the street and within walking distance to our campus (fully-funded)
  • $2,000 stipend
  • Opportunity to teach in GoggleWorks' community arts programs
  • Travel stipend (up to $500)
  • Opportunity to document work
  • Material stipend
  • Culminating exhibition

Accepted applicants agree to:

  • Bring a sampling of selected works for an introductory exhibition
  • Participate in GoggleWorks' community art programs, including presenting an artist talk and discussing their process with GoggleWorks visitors
  • Complete their proposed body of work/project within the time frame of the residency
  • Prepare works for exhibition by August 3, 2020
  • Leave one finished artwork for the GoggleWorks' permanent collection
  • Retrieve work upon completion of exhibition

Portfolio-Based Application The portfolio-based application allows artists to focus on their personal studio practice and the development of a body of work. Portfolio-based applications are able to select one studio of focus; however, special consideration will be given to artists interested in developing multi-media work within more than one of our eight studios.

The portfolio-based application requires:

  • artist statement
  • resume or C.V.
  • visual representation of your current work (10 images, jpg format, sized at max. 1500 pixels at largest dimension, 300 dpi, labeled 1-10.)
  • statement of intent
  • anticipated material and equipment needs
  • selection of one or more of GoggleWorks' communal teaching studios to work within
