Call For Artists: Keyholder Residency

Before I delve back into introducing our new Special Editions Artists in Residence, I wanted to take a minute and talk about our upcoming residency deadline. I know exactly what you are thinking, more mail for me! Applications are due March 1, 2010. This is a postmark deadline or drop off deadline depending on one's approach. 

The Keyholder Residency Program offers emerging artists free 24-hour access to our shared printmaking facilities, giving them a year of free studio space and access as a way to foster the production of new work. Keyholders work independently and are encouraged to experiment with a variety of different printmaking mediums. Artists from all disciplines are eligible to apply, as print-making skills are not required and basic instruction in printmaking techniques is part of the program. 

All of the information on how to apply is available on our website so I won't post it here, but what I will do is show a few images of past Keyholder work. A picture is worth a thousand words.

Please pass on information about the residency to anyone you think might be interested, its free to apply and an amazing opportunity. Or if you are feeling especially "residency friendly" buy a ticket to our upcoming Benefit on February 24, 2010 and contribute directly to emerging artists!
