RESIDENCY 108 fall session

Share

Category:

Country:

Residency 108 invites emerging and established artists, writers and thinkers of all disciplines to immerse themselves in their creative practice. We particularly welcome those who work with nature, ecology and the installation of temporary outdoor land-art works. The residency is free apart from the cost of travel and material expenses which must be assumed by the individual. 

Two four week-long residencies are offered each year, one during the month of October and one in May. The program accommodates three artists at a time. Each resident is provided with a room, working facilities and a weekly stipend for food, participants are responsible for cooking their own meals. Each resident will be asked to present their work during the residency and weekly critiques are held as a group, sometimes with a visiting critic.

The program takes place on 108 acres of pastoral land which was used as a horse farm in the last century. The property features rolling hills, mowed paths, meadows, densely wooded forests, wetlands with a few ponds of varying size and a seasonal stream. In addition to these ecosystems a variety of native plant species host habitats for birds, reptiles and amphibians.

The residency is located in a remote area, there is no public transportation in the area, and we do not have a vehicle available for resident use apart from a bike. We do however provide weekly trips to shop for supplies and food. Our program is ideal for artists who wish to engage with the landscape and prefer isolation to interaction. If you require constant contact with “civilization” this may not be the program for you.

Adaptations: Living with Change Residencies

A Studio in the Woods is now accepting applications for Adaptations: Living with Change Residencies. The call is open to artists of all disciplines who have demonstrated an established dialogue with environmental and culturally related issues and a commitment to seeking and plumbing new depths. Residencies are 6 weeks, will take place between September 2019 and May 2020, and include a $2500 stipend and $2000 materials budget.

New Orleans and the region are frequently invoked as one of the areas most vulnerable to the effects of environmental change. Our highly manipulated landscape can be seen as a microcosm of the global environment, manifesting both the challenges and possibilities inherent in the ways humans interact with urban and natural ecosystems. With nearly half of the world’s population living within 40 miles of a coastline with rising seas, the concerns of Southern Louisiana resonate globally. Adaptations Residencies invite artists to examine how climate driven adaptations – large and small, historic and contemporary, cultural and scientific – shape our future. Adaptations Residencies will provide artists with time, space, scholarship and staff support to foster critical thinking and creation of new works.

Proposals are due by April 22nd and residencies will be awarded by June 14th, 2019.

Keeping the Bees: The Importance of Pollinators

June 16 – July 28, 2019

Over 75% of the flowering plants on earth rely on animals and insects for pollination, including nearly 75% of our food crops. Without these creatures such as hummingbirds, bats, bees, beetles, butterflies, and flies, these plants would not be able to produce fruits and seeds, which would be devastating to people and the planet. Join Brushwood Center at Ryerson Woods in bringing attention to the importance and plight of the pollinator in this group art exhibition. We are accepting work in all visual media and styles that feature or are in some way related to pollinators. See below for online resources for more information on pollinators.

Submission Deadline: May 15, 2019

Artist Notification: May 17, 2019

Exhibition: Sunday, June 16 (opening reception 1-3pm) to Sunday, July 28, 2019

Submission:

Artists wishing to apply should email up to three images of examples of the work they intend to enter to: info@brushwoodcenter.org along with their contact info no later than May 15, 2019. If it is not immediately apparent how your work relates to pollinators, please also include a brief artist statement that explains the relation. There is no fee to apply or participate. Brushwood Center will retain 15% of all sales.
