Deadline: February 1st, 2017
StudioWorks at the Tides Institute and Museum of Art offers residency opportunities to visual artists to deepen and develop their practice within a community setting. Studio space is provided in a ground floor studio building, including a printmaking and letterpress studio, located within Eastport’s historic downtown and working waterfront community. The residency provides a unique experience for each artist to create work within a public context and play an active role in the creative community. Eastport, Maine, is located within a coastal ‘artsipelago’ of island and peninsula communities along the international border between the Province of New Brunswick, Canada, and the State of Maine, USA.
Proposals will be considered from artists working in drawing, painting, digital/new media, photography, printmaking/letterpress, installation, sculpture, textiles or a combination of these. Students who are enrolled in an undergraduate or master’s degree program at the time of the application deadline are not eligible for a residency.
Stipend: $2,000 for a 4-week residency; $4,000 for an 8-week residency; pro-rated for other durations. Stipends are paid 50% during the first week; 50% at conclusion of the residency. Personal living expenses are the responsibility of each resident during his/her stay.
