Program Overview

GoggleWorks Center for the Arts will offer three residencies in the summer of 2019 to outstanding visual artists who will spend 10-weeks, from June 3 - August 9, on our campus developing a project/body of work. The Summer Artist-In-Residence Program was created to infuse new, creative energy to the GoggleWorks community with an emphasis on facilitating cross-disciplinary experimentation.  The residency provides personal studio space, access to GoggleWorks' eight communal studios (ceramics, warm glass, hot glass, photography, printmaking, metalsmithing, wood and V.R. Lab), and a culminating exhibition showcasing the residents' work.

Applicants can choose to submit a project-based application or portfolio-based application by March 8, 2019. Selection of residents is highly competitive and based on the strength of the applicant's project proposal and/or quality of work and experience. Residents should be self-motivated and enthusiastic, dedicated to their artwork, and enjoy working with other people in a communal studio setting. M.F.A. or equivalent experience is strongly preferred. 

The Summer Artist-in-Residence Program provides:

  • Studio space with 24/7 access (fully-funded)
  • Access to GoggleWorks' eight communal studios
  • Shared, furnished housing conveniently located across the street and within walking distance to our campus (fully-funded)
  • $2,000 stipend 
  • Opportunity to teach in GoggleWorks' community arts programs
  • Travel stipend (up to $500) 
  • Documentation      
  • Material stipend

Accepted applicants agree to:

  • participate in GoggleWorks' community art programs, including presenting an artist talk
  • complete their proposed body of work/project  within the time frame of the residency

Portfolio-Based Application

The portfolio-based application allows artists to focus on their personal studio practice and the development of a body of work. Portfolio-based applications are able to select one studio of focus, however, special consideration will be given to artists interested in developing multi-media work within more than one of our eight studios. The portfolio-based application requires:

  • artist statement
  • resume or C.V.
  • visual representation of your current work ( 10 images, jpg format, sized at max. to 1500 pixels at largest dimension, 300 dpi, labeled 1-10.)
