One studio space at Inscape is dedicated most months of the year to an artist residency program. Organized and curated by building artists Susanna Bluhm, Britta Johnson, Michael Lorefice, Kristin Schimik, and Tara Tamaribuchi, the residency consists of work-only studio space for approximately 3 months, culminating in an exhibition in the residency/gallery space.


We are not accepting applications at this time.


Selection Process

Residencies are awarded to artists who submit thoughtful, compelling and relevant applications that consist of high quality work. Inscape is a large community of diverse artists and we consider how applicants and their goals fit into the overall community.

Residency Requirements

Artists are required to work onsite for a minimum of 10 hours a week for the duration of the residency period. Artists are responsible for their own materials. Artists are expected to exhibit artwork at the end of their residency period, which can include finished work or work in progress. Artists must be over the age of 18 and not currently enrolled in a degree program.
