oxbowfrontofinnOx-Bow’s Artist-in-Residence program, located in Saugatuck, MI, offers artists and writers the time, space, and community to encourage growth and experimentation in their practice. During the fall residents are given the time, solitude, and focus often unavailable to so many working artists.

At Ox-Bow, artists can enjoy 24-hour access to their studios, and an inspirational setting, free from the expectations of commercial and academic demands. During the fall season, Artists-in-Residence have the opportunity to work in studios not available during the summer session. The fall is an ideal time for writers to apply as there are studios dedicated specifically to them. The residency is open to all visual art disciplines and writers.

Oxbow is happy to announce that in 2017 Ox-Bow furthered its commitment to the needs of artists by no longer charging fees for the residency program. All residents are fully funded.

To apply, visit their website: www.ox-bow.org

Charlotte Street Foundation is seeking applications from visual artists, performing artists, and writers interested in being considered for its Studio Residency Program. Applications are due Monday, May 15, 2017 for year-long studio residency terms, which run September 2017 through September 2018. Applications will be accepted EXCLUSIVELY through www.callforentry.org. All applicants must create a Call For Entry (CAFE) username/password account in order to use the online application. The application process is competitive through an independent jury process and based solely on the merit of the artist work samples and written statements. Charlotte Street Foundation administrates the jury panel each term.

Entering its fourteenth year, the Studio Residency Program provides free studio and rehearsal spaces to exceptional young, emerging, and/or already accomplished artists in need of workspace in which to create and to develop their creative processes, professional practices, and peer networks. Through the program’s offerings—which include studio space, required monthly meetings, presentations, studio visits, mentorships, public programs, exhibitions, and access to a multidisciplinary network of artist peers—Charlotte Street’s Studio Residency Program encourages creative production, artistic experimentation and collaboration, professional development, and community building.

Charlotte Street Foundation addresses artist’s need for studio space in Kansas City by securing vacant downtown office space, in partnership with generous real estate owners. Since its inception in 2004, the program has supported hundreds of artists. Approximately 30 artists will be in residence during the year-long term (September through September). Charlotte Street strives to have an equal mix of emerging and established artists representing a multiplicity of disciplines. Applicants will be notified by July 2017.

Eligibility:

Residencies are granted to selected artists for one-year terms, which run September through September. Artists who make exceptional use of their studios are eligible to apply for a second year term, with their applications subject to the same competitive review as new applicants. Full-time students will NOT be considered.

  • Visual artists working in all media are encouraged to apply. Note, the use of toxic materials in studios is prohibited. The studio spaces do not enable the use of a kiln, welding equipment, or other heavy machinery. The majority of spaces are not light or sound-tight.
  • Performing artists working in all disciplines are encouraged to apply, including theatre artists, choreographers/dancers, composers/musicians, singers/songwriters, performance artists, filmmakers, and cross-disciplinary artists.
  • Writers working in all genres are encouraged to apply. Particular preference will be given to artists with a strong interest in working in a cross-disciplinary environment with access to other artists, including those whose focus is on critical/expository writing about art/artists and contemporary culture.

Application Requirements: To apply, visit www.callforentry.org.
Applications are DUE by midnight (CST), Monday, May 15, 2017.
