Guild Hall Invites Applications for 2020 Artist-In-Residence Program
This Deadline Expired: Friday, December 13, 2019
Guild Hall works to inform, inspire, and enrich diverse audiences by presenting programs of the highest quality in the visual and performing arts, connect artists to the historic art colony on eastern Long Island, and provide a meeting place for all.
In support of that mission, the organization is inviting applications for the Guild Hall Artist-In-Residence 2020. Through the program, three artists will receive stipends of $1,500 to cover their daily expenses and materials, as well as eight complimentary Hampton Jitney tickets ( four roundtrips to New York City), and free living space in the organization’s nineteenth-century Guild House.
The AIR program is intended to give artists the opportunity to actively research, experiment with, and continuously develop new ideas/concepts, all while exploring the historic artist colony of East Hampton. Residents also will have the opportunity to connect with other artists and civic leaders at weekly salon dinners, meet with select members of Guild Hall’s Academy of the Arts and/or artistic staff, and share their work with the community through invited school trips/visits and public discussions.
The program culminates with an informal sharing of work collected and produced during the residency period to an invited audience of local artists, civic leaders, and Guild Hall staff/board. The form of the sharing will be devised and decided by residents and could take the form of individual exhibits/staged environments, readings, performances, works-in-progress, or a collaborative group show.
Guild Hall is especially interested in artists with an exhibition/publication history who have completed formal training or equivalent experience and recognition from peers. AIR occurs in two four-week periods: April 19 through May 17, 2020; or October 25 through November 22, 2020.
There is a $20 application fee for this opportunity.
See the Guild Hall website for complete program guidelines and application instructions.
