Philadelphia Based Artist-in-Residence Opportunity

Philadelphia Based Artist-in-Residence Opportunity

deadline: Friday, August 26, 2022

This opportunity is brought to you by a small, creative Presbyterian congregation in the Fox Chase neighborhood of Philadelphia looking to have their horizons expanded in terms of art and creativity.

They received a grant to start an Artist-in-Residence program. This is a 10-month commitment, working 20 hours each month beginning in September 2022. This program is intended to be a learning experience for both the artist and the congregation. It is to benefit both by having lots of joy and fun.

This program requires two things from the artist:

*Each month the artist will produce a new project. This could be a mural on the back wall of our Fellowship Hall, creating an interactive way to be front facing to the community (perhaps a large chalkboard for community members to write down something that they want to do in their lifetime…), a creative design for our website, or a new artistic element created during the worship service, etc. The possibilities are endless!

*Every other month, the artist will teach a class on painting, sculpting, or other artistic things. This is open to whatever the artist enjoys doing and can teach.

Reply if you are interested and to discuss compensation.

Be prepared to follow up with:
1) Resume
2) 10 images of your work, or a link to your website, Instagram page, YouTube channel…
3) Cover letter – Please address why this program inspires you!

If interested, please reach out to mpcfoxchase@gmail.com or 215-745-2844

Relationships
(I always say) are never easy:
especially those between
color, shape, texture, space . . .
and tension.
The relationship of the part to the part,
the part to the whole and the relationship
of the piece to the viewer . . . no matter
what materials I use is all important.
I use titles to emotionalize these abstract
pieces to help communicate a connection
between the individual and
the universal whole.

In the metal pieces I use recycled aluminum
printing press plates which I sand,
cut and glue onto wood panels, they are
about energy and light, patterns and
motion, all influenced by the microcosm
of life forms, biology, and a
hint of satire.
