Guild Hall Invites Applications for 2020 Artist-In-Residence Program

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.

Fran Lightman Gibson a Philadelphia painter working primarily with oil on canvas.
I attribute the source of my artistic inspiration to my love, fear, and awe of nature as it both represents and defines the tension and optimism of life. My “Take Any Road Series” encourages the viewer to have the confidence to experience life no matter how difficult or confusing, beautiful, or powerful. All of this exists with an underlying structure of assumptions.
I think we all see the world a little differently and feel our own experience uniquely.  I paint using what all of my senses have given to me as the experience.  When I paint the sky, I am feeling the wind, putting it to music in my head, remembering the smell of the chance of rain, tasting the air, seeing the clouds dance.

Constance Culpepper is a contemporary artist located in Philadelphia, PA (USA). Her large, vibrantly colored oil paintings primarily depict domestic scenes, including interiors, still life, the female figure, and chairs. The paintings are representational, yet deconstructed, and full of pattern. With her paper collages, Culpepper is more abstract, yet the themes of domesticity can still be found.
