Professional Artist-in-Residence Program – Printmaking/Painting/Drawing Focus

Pratt provides professional artists with the opportunity to take advantage of our specialized Printmaking studio, along with access to experienced assistants to help them explore the potential of new materials and processes, through a month-long residency.

We seek applications from established artists for whom a change of environment may offer inspiration and time for experimentation. While the residency is not limited to local artists, travel and housing compensation is not available.

The residency is available from July 28 to August 24, 2014 and supports artists who will be working primarily in printmaking, painting and drawing.  Artists may also choose to take advantage of our other studios and work in areas in which they have little experience (blacksmithing, metal fabrication, mold making, bronze casting, stone carving, jewelry and metalsmithing, wood-working, glassblowing, flame-worked glass, kiln forming and hot cast glass) with the support of skilled artist assistants. Access to some studios is contingent on availability; all efforts will be made to accommodate the artist’s proposal. The residency requires a teaching component in the artist’s area of specialization.  Details to be determined in collaboration with the artist.

Award details included in the residency are a stipend of US $1,500, a $500 materials stipend and a $500 credit toward private instruction, assistance and/or studio rental (there is no studio rental fee for the use of the printmaking, painting or drawing studios). Access to formal classes is available with prearrangement. In addition, Pratt will provide a venue, reception and publicity for a public lecture.
