For over 55 years, Peninsula School of Art has supported the advancement of visual artists’ careers, the creative process, and the development of new work. Originally a seasonal destination for artists and educators to make, exchange ideas, and collaborate, we have evolved into a national arts hub; serving a growing audience through innovative workshops, exhibitions, and public programs. With such value placed on taking risks and pursuing new directions throughout PenArt’s history, we are excited to announce our Artists-in-Residence Program; an expanded opportunity to support the artists of today.
Designed for emerging, mid-career, and established visual artists, the Artists-in-Residence Program is an immersive studio experience awarded to six individuals each year. The program prioritizes time and space for residents to engage fully in their creative practice, take risks, and pursue new projects and ideas. For six weeks, residents receive a semi-private workspace in our new Madeline Tourtelot Studio Building; access to our fully equipped printmaking, ceramics, metals, and digital studios; housing; and professional development opportunities.
Peninsula School of Art aims to bring together a talented, diverse, and dynamic group of artists. Residents are selected by an independent committee of artists, educators, arts professionals, and community members. Applicants are evaluated based on the quality of their work, commitment to their practice, and readiness to engage in and benefit from the residence experience we offer. Applications are scheduled to open in January of 2022.
