Gallery of Dreams has hosted an artist-in-residence (AIR) program in the past. Previous resident artists include Dan Lam (2017), Marshall Harris (2018), and Erika Duque (2019). This year’s residency is supported by a grant from the North Texas Community Foundation. The selected artist will receive a cash award of $7,500, dedicated studio space from July 1 through September 30, 2024, a monthly stipend for materials, and a solo exhibition to showcase the work created during the residency.

During the residency, the artist will present a public lecture and allow visitors to observe their studio practice. The artist must work in the studio for 15 hours each week during the gallery’s business hours, which includes being present on Saturdays and one other day of the week. Throughout the duration of the residency, the artist’s work will be represented by FWA and will be considered for display in the gallery.
