ABOUT THE AIR PROGRAM

The residency is open to all artists by application. We are not currently accepting applications.
The AIR space is a studio space (approximately 17 x 22 feet, white drywall walls, concrete floor, no windows) on the first floor of Inscape that also doubles as our small gallery. This is a studio-only residency – not live/work.
Duration: approximately 3 months
Exhibition: The residency culminates in a solo show in the residency/gallery space.
Residencies will be 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’ll also be looking to see how applicants and their goals fit into the overall community.
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.
