The Hereford Branch of Baltimore County Public Library is excited to announce that it is now accepting applications for its 2019 Artist/Maker-in-Residence program, sponsored by the Northern Baltimore County Art Foundation. Now in its third year, this program presents a unique opportunity for the growth and development of selected artists as well as the convenience of interacting with our community through the sharing of skills and expertise. Artists will be located in The Hive, the innovative and collaborative art/maker space inside the Hereford Branch. Residency terms will be awarded through December 2019.

Completely renovated in 2016, the Hereford Branch is located in the gently rolling hills of northern Baltimore County and provides a wide range of high caliber art events, activities, and exhibits for all ages. In addition to providing 21st-century library services, the branch utilizes the Walker hanging system on its two floors of gallery space and attracts regionally and nationally recognized artists, as well as providing a venue for amateur art and school shows.

As our mission statement says, Baltimore County Public Library is your place to "explore, learn, create and connect." The Artist-in-Residence program enhances the library’s mission to inspire a literate and engaged community.


Application Process:

Admission to the artist-in-residence program is by application only (see below). A jury of library administration, staff, and subject matter experts makes a selection of finalists, who are then invited for an in-person interview for the residency program. The jury selects artists-in-residence on a semi-annual basis.

Previous BCPL artists-in-residence are welcome to apply for an additional residency, but preference will be given to first-time artists. There must be at least a two-year gap between residencies for any returning artists-in-residence. Current BCPL staff are not eligible to apply.

The deadline for applications is April 30, 2019.

The jury will meet and inform all applicants of their application status by the end of May. Residencies will be awarded through December 2019. We receive a large number of applications and regret that we cannot offer every applicant an Artist in Residence position. If you have specific questions about the application process, please email Samantha O’Heren, Branch Manager at soheren@bcpl.net.

Applicants will be notified of their status by the end of May. If you have additional questions or need additional time, please feel free to contact Samantha O’Heren or Cynthia Webber at the Hereford Branch. You may send your completed application to Hereford-Art@bcpl.net.
