Do you know someone who has been building their momentum in the visual arts? Someone who has received some recognition but is on the cusp of breaking through to the next level? Are you that person? There is still time to apply! Centrum is proud to continue its annual Emerging Artist Residency program from October 1-31, 2021. Each year, a panel of jurors made up of curators, EAR alumnx, and artists selects six artists from across the Northwest (Alaska, Washington, Oregon, Montana, Idaho, and British Columbia) to receive a $1,500 stipend and a month of lodging, studio, and community support.

Applications are now being accepted. Deadline is April 30, 2021. Learn more: https://centrum.org/ear/
