Open Call: Fully Funded Studio Residency for Artists who are Parents

Open Call: Fully Funded Studio Residency for Artists who are Parents

This Deadline Expired: Thursday, June 20, 2019

2019-2020 Sustainable Arts Fellowship at Gallery Aferro

Deadline: 6/20/2019 @ 11:59pm EST, for residency August 20th, 2019 – February 20th, 2020

As an artist-run space Gallery Aferro honors the layers of complexity that working artists negotiate throughout their lives. This is often especially visible in the practices and careers of artists who are also parents. Gallery Aferro is invested in uplifting artists to help them make art now, not later, and encouraging an environment where they can make work as large and complex as their vision. With the help of funding from the Sustainable Arts Foundation, Gallery Aferro offers this open call to all artists or writers that are parents* and would like to continue their creative practice in an engaged and energized studio residency in downtown Newark, NJ. The studio will be provided to the parent-artist for 6 months at no cost and will come with a $1000 stipend given at the beginning of the 6-month rotation. The stipend and free studio will facilitate the parent-artist in coordinating effective time and energy to be spent in their studios. Collectives are welcome to apply, and there are no geographical restrictions.

Christina Penrose's work is a result of experimenting with various transfer methods, collage, and paint application. This process stimulates underlying themes that are at times autobiographical, political, environmental, or mystical. Often inspired from the landscapes from her travels.
