Corning Museum of Glass: David Whitehouse Artist Residency for Research: 8/31

The Corning Museum of Glass in Corning, New York, is accepting applications for a research residency program for glass artists that will allow one artist to use its resources, including the permanent collections and the holdings of the Rakow Research Library, to inform his or her practice.

Named for museum's former executive director, the David Whitehouse Artist Residency for Research will enable artists to be in residence for up to three weeks to explore materials at the Rakow Library, the world’s foremost library on the art and history of glass and glassmaking, and to use other scholarly resources available at the museum, including knowledgeable staff who work in all parts of the organization.

One resident will be selected for the first year and will be in residence for up to three weeks in 2019. While in Corning, the artist will be asked to give a presentation about his or her work and research. Artists who feel they would benefit from using the resources of the Rakow Library and from spending some time at the Corning Museum of Glass are encouraged to apply.

Application Deadline: August 31, 2018

Breckenridge Creative Arts Residency Program: 8/31

Breckenridge Creative Arts (BCA)’s artist-in-residence program offers regional, national, and international artists of all disciplines an opportunity to focus on process rather than product while engaging with the local community in a meaningful way.

Visiting artists live and work for 4–8 weeks in the Breckenridge Arts District, an intimate campus of historic structures nestled under majestic snow-capped peaks in cozy downtown Breckenridge. During their live/work residency, artists partner with a local organization to explore a place-based thematic narrative—whether that means interpreting our spectacular mountain setting, rich local history, or risk-taking spirit; or focusing on an environmental or social topic important to the community. BCA will reimburse artists up to $500 for travel, and artists are offered a weekly stipend of $200 to cover food, materials, and other expenses. Artist expectations include: 1) mentoring a local artist-in-residence; 2) participating in monthly Second Saturdays*; 3) facilitating a weekly class, lecture, or activity on campus; and 4) planning and hosting a final presentation or event produced in collaboration with a local partner.

Local artists are invited to apply for a studio residency in the Fuqua Livery Stable for 4-8 weeks, where they will contribute to and benefit from a communal atmosphere that fosters creative practice, new relationships, and knowledge-sharing. In exchange for a private work station and personal storage; a BCA artist membership; and unlimited use of all campus studios for independent work; artists must commit to hosting three “working studios” weekly between the hours of 3-8 p.m., and participate in monthly Second Saturdays for Adults. When working in the studio, artists in residence are asked to keep Fuqua Livery Stable open to the public. Up to three artists will be selected for each residency.

Exhibiting artists are curated artists who participate in BCA’s annual exhibition or festival programs, which include both indoor gallery spaces and outdoor installation sites. These artists may be eligible to receive housing on campus along with a negotiated artist fee. Exhibiting artists staying in the Tin Shop or Robert Whyte House are asked to host one artist talk, workshop, or event each week of their stay, in addition to any exhibition-related obligations that have been contracted separately. Click here for more information and how to apply.

Co-op artists are local creative entrepreneurs who rent affordable space on the Arts District campus and host regular visiting hours in their studios for the public to observe their process. Email Becca Spiro at becca@breckcreate.org to inquire about availability.

The artist-in-residence program is a partnership between Breckenridge Creative Arts and the Saddle Rock Society.

Second Saturday on the Arts District Campus: A free community program that takes place on the second Saturday of each month, the day starts with Second Saturday for Families—a morning session of hands-on activities and creative crafts for children of all ages (with a parent or guardian present) in the Fuqua Livery Stable from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. Spots are reserved online for this drop-in workshop, which is offered on a first-come, first-served basis. Materials are provided, and participants get to take their projects home. Second Saturday for Adults follows from 5-9 p.m. the same evening, inviting grown-up participants to explore campus studios and galleries in the Tin Shop, Robert Whyte House, Fuqua Livery Stable, and Gallery@OMH, where they visit current exhibitions, meet artists-in-residence, and see works in progress. Complimentary wine, cheese, and non-alcoholic beverages are provided on the upper level of Gallery@OMH. 

Application deadline is August 31, 2018. Selections will be made by September 14, 2018.
