Calling all craft artists! The deadline to apply for a residency at the Houston Center for Contemporary Craft (HCCC) is March 1. Not sure if you’ll fit in? Check out HCCC alumni; they seem to have a healthy mix of the craft vs. art perspective.
It’s a pretty good deal with pretty nice studio spaces (sinks, phones, wireless, accessible 24 hours), a $500 monthly stipend (plus another $300 to help with housing and/or materials), possibilities of teaching gigs, and a big group show at the end of the residency cycle.
There are 3, 6, 9, and 12-month residencies available to craft artists from anywhere. The “accepted media” are wood, glass, metal, fiber, clay, and mixed media (doesn’t “mixed media” cover everything else?). For more information, go here. For an amazing Carpenters video, go here:
