ALL INCLUSIVE ARTIST IN RESIDENCE PROGRAM AT SONOMA COMMUNITY CENTER
Applications due May 2, 2016.
We believe that our connection to the community is strengthened by supplying a venue for talented artists to integrate with, and become members of the Sonoma community. For six months our Artist in Residence provides community members and visitors with a fresh perspective on the Sonoma Valley.
One Artist in Residence will be chosen to spend six months living and working at the Sonoma Community Center. During this time, the Artist in Residence is able to concentrate on developing a cohesive body of work that is representative of their time here. While at Sonoma Community Center, the Artist in Residence is given ample employment opportunities to teach classes and workshops.
Open to all artists living within the US, the residency provides a self-directed emerging or established artist a supportive environment to explore artwork and ideas. The opportunity is designed for artists dedicated to developing a body of work with a specific purpose of end goal, culminating in a gallery exhibition at the completion of the residency.
As resident artists are given a number of opportunities, they are expected, in turn, to provide up to 20 hours a week in work trade. Work trade responsibilities can include, but are not limited to: studio clean-up and maintenance; kiln loading, firing and maintenance; mixing glazes; special events; and other studio-related duties as assigned by management. – See more at: https://www.sonomacommunitycenter.org/artist-in-residence-program.html#sthash.8IadCOVB.dpuf
