The Galveston Artist Residency is pleased to announce an Open Call for applications for the 2018 - 2019 Residency Year.

We will be awarding 3 residency grants for the time period of September 1, 2018 through August 1, 2019. Residencies are for the full 11 months.

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 $500 travel stipend to be granted upon arrival.

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 10th, 2018 - 12am CST:

20 images/examples of your work along with the 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 keep in mind that the application process is highly competitive. Residencies are chosen by an outside selection panel of art professionals. Recipients of the residency grant will be notified of their acceptance by the end of April.
