Galveston Artist Residency 2014 - 2015 Open Call for Applications

The Galveston Artist Residency is pleased to announce an Open Call for applications for the 2014-2015 Residency Year.

Because we are honoring two residency deferrals from past years at this time, we are selecting only one additional residency grant for September 1, 2014 through August 1, 2015.

GAR is a fully funded residency. Artists in residence will receive a studio, an apartment, a monthly stipend of $1,000 per month and a bicycle.

The residency is intended as a gift of time for the development of your practice. We are looking for visual artists that are at a point in their life where they need to focus on their work and will benefit from a period of intense studio time.

GAR is located in Galveston TX, a barrier island about one hour away from Houston, on the east Texas coast. Galveston is an eclectic mixture of tourism & industry with a rich history.

If you are interested in being considered for the Residency program please submit the following application materials no later than March 15th, 2014:

A cd with 20 images of your work and/or a dvd with 20 minutes of video footage. All files will be viewed on a Macintosh system. Please label each file lastname.firstname.number.

Hard copies of the following:

An image list with Title/Date/Media/Dimensions.
A Statement of Intent, which includes why you are interested in doing a residency with GAR.
3 professional references who we may contact regarding your application.
A current resume with a phone number, address and email where you can be reached.

Please send your application materials to: Galveston Artist Residency, 2521 Ships Mechanic Row, Galveston, TX, 77550.

Recipient of the residency grant will be notified of their acceptance by the end of April. Application materials will not be returned, so please do not send any original work, dvds, etc.
