The Starry Night Exposure program provides visual artists with the opportunity to show their work at large internationally attended art fairs in the US and abroad. They are currently accepting applications. There is no fee to apply. To learn more please visit http://starrynightexposure.com/about/

Accepted Exposure Artists will receive professional training in our comprehensive 8 week online professional practices program, valued at $995. More info on this program is available at http://starrynightonline.com.

Upon acceptance into the Exposure program, visual artists will have their work represented on the international stage during Art Basel Miami in December, 2017.

The Exposure program features cutting edge contemporary work by emerging and established visual artists. Whether an artist is looking for gallery representation, is seeking to connect with collectors and dealers, or wanting to have a presence at a venue with international recognition, the Exposure program gives them the access to take this major step in their career – and fortify their CV substantially.

Exhibiting with the Exposure program, with our non-exclusive representation agreement, gives our artists access to exclusive art fairs that are otherwise closed to individual artists.

Now in its sixth year, the Exposure program will be partnering once again with the Aqua Art Fair to steward a portfolio of emerging, contemporary artists onto the international art scene at Art Basel Miami.

The Chili Bowl Workspace Residency is a four- to six-week opportunity for functional ceramicists who want to participate in Women’s Studio Workshop’s biggest community event of the year while also creating their own work in our supportive and immersive environment. This particular residency will occur between November and December 2017.

WSW invites applications from artists in any stage of their careers and aim to provide artists with the time and space to live and work creatively. While the workspace residencies are highly subsidized (the actual cost is $5,000/month), awardees pay $100/week and make 50 glazed or 100 bisqued bowls in exchange for on-campus housing and 24/7 studio access. Additionally, artists receive a thorough studio orientation. Artists are expected to work independently, although studio staff is always available to provide assistance. Artists are required to provide the expendable materials for their own project and can use studio materials for the Chili Bowl vessels.

Each February, WSW sells over 900 bowls, mugs, and tumblers at our Chili Bowl Fiesta. Attendees can fill their new wares with chili donated by over 20 area restaurants. The vessels are made and decorated throughout the year by visiting artists, staff, interns, local potters, and our weekly clay study group. Funds raised at the Fiesta support WSW’s ceramics department.
