Emerging Artist Residency: Open Call for Applications

Are you ready to dedicate some precious time to your emerging practice?

The Emerging Artist Residency supports artists residing in the Northwest region who are at pivotal and early stages of their professional careers. Artists may be recent graduates, have a limited exhibition history, or come from a non-traditional path in the arts. Artists must be residents of Alaska, British Columbia, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, or Washington, and have a demonstrated commitment to artistic practice.

After six years of using a nomination process for Centrum’s Emerging Artist Residency (EAR), for 2020 we are moving to an open call. Our extensive network of nominators will still be encouraged to recommend and invite artists to apply, but this will no longer be a pre-requisite for applying.

Six artists will be selected by a panel of jurors to be in residence between October 1-31. Selected artists are provided with housing, studio space and a $1,500 stipend, while they spend the month creating work in community with one another. Throughout the residency, artists benefit from studio visits with arts professionals, opportunities to connect with local artists, and participation in a closing open studio event. Through access to time, space, and community, artists have a rare occasion to focus on ideas, expand their networks, and build relationships that continue beyond the residency.
