Hey artists, want a residency in Houston?? A quick perusal of our Classifieds reveals several upcoming opportunities in the thriving metropolis.
Houston Center for Contemporary Craft is looking for artists to participate in the ninth iteration of their CraftTexas exhibition, set to open in September of 2016. The show will be juried by Paul Sacaridiz, Executive Director of Haystack Mountain School of Crafts in beautiful Deer Isle, Maine; Nicole Burisch, Core Fellow Critic-in-Residence at the MFAH; and Sandie Zilker, Chair of Jewelry and Three-Dimensional Design at the Glassell School of Art. Applicants must be residents of Texas and working in a craft media, including clay, fiber, glass, metal, wood, and found/recycled materials. The deadline to submit to CraftTexas is April 30.

Lawndale Art Center is seeking applicants for the 2016-2017 Lawndale Artist Studio Program, a nine-month residency from September to May that includes a monthly stipend of $500, a materials allowance of $1,500, and 24-hour access to a private studio. The residency culminates in an exhibition of works created during the nine-month program, including a workshop taught by the artist that aims to educate the public about the artist’s practice. The application for the studio program is open to all artists, so long as they are not currently enrolled in a degree plan. Applications close April 30. Learn more and apply here.
This week is also your last chance to apply for an exhibition at Lawndale—the deadline was recently extended to March 31. Apply here.
