AAC is currently seeking short-term residents for a studio space that will be available from November 2019 through May of 2020. The studio is approximately 600 square feet. AAC will consider applicants who wish to use the whole space and those who are open to sharing with one other artist. Applicants will be asked to indicate their preference in their application.
Arlington Arts Center’s resident artist program provides subsidized studio space in a supportive environment that encourages interaction, dialogue, and exploration. The program gives artists the opportunity to develop their practice in a community with other artists and alongside AAC’s critically acclaimed exhibitions and extensive educational programs. All studios have excellent sunlight, work sinks, and high ceilings with 24-hour access, 365 days a year. Facilities include a shared lounge area, kitchen, and bathroom.
Selection Process
Contemporary visual artists working in all media are welcome to apply. The program is not designed for commercial artists. Selection criteria will include artistic merit, potential for community engagement, and diversity of media and artistic representation.
Applicants who have recently (within a year) applied to AAC’s existing long-term residency call will be considered for the short-term studio as well and do not need to reapply. Incomplete applications or those with unpaid application fees will not be considered, and will be automatically disqualified.
Completed applications with all required attachments must be submitted online. No mailed or emailed applications will be accepted.
