Artist in Residency 2016

The Artist Residency Program is designed to support an emerging artist by providing working and living space, an opportunity to build their portfolio and a chance to exhibit their work.

The program provides a creative artist the chance to spend two weeks in a place away from their usual environment, to meet new people from a different community, to experience a different location and to concentrate on their artistic work.

The program will allow the artist to connect with members of the local arts community through the Arts Center, to engage in an educational experience in the arts community, and to exhibit their work at CTAC.

The call for prospective artists in residency will be open from December 1, 2015 – January 31, 2016 through Café (www.callforentry.org). Artists must be 21 or older.

Application fee: $25
