Center for Art in Wood & NextFab Winter Residency

Center for Art in Wood & NextFab Winter Residency

This Deadline Expired: Friday, September 18, 2020

The Center for Art in Wood and NextFab are pleased to announce the launch of a Winter Residency Program designed for artists in Greater Philadelphia working in the medium of wood. This initiative is a collaboration between The Center for Art in Wood and NextFab, a network of member-based maker spaces. They are inviting applications from artists who work either solely in wood or other materials in combination with wood and can demonstrate technical proficiency with woodworking equipment. Reflecting their support of environmental stewardship, artists will use reclaimed wood for at least fifty percent of their work during the residency. A jury of makers and educators will award one fellowship annually, and the residency culminates in a solo exhibition in the gallery at NextFab’s new North Philadelphia location.

Submissions will be accepted from August 1 through September 18, 2020. The selected Fellow will be announced the week of October 5, 2020, and the residency runs January 11 through March 1, 2021. The exhibition of residency work, presented in the gallery at North Philadelphia NextFab, will open on March 4th, with an artist talk delivered at the Center for Art in Wood on March 10th.
