Textile Arts Center Work in Progress Residency

Textile Arts Center Work in Progress Residency

This Deadline Expired: Monday, November 18, 2019

The applications for Work In Progress residency sessions from March to July 2020 are now OPEN at the Textile Arts Center! The Work in Progress Residency program works to engage the public with textile work and offers exposure opportunities for artists. We encourage you to inform your alumni of this program and please pass along the open call to interested individuals!

The Textile Arts Center’s Work in Progress program offers selected artists TAC Manhattan’s storefront window for one month to (re)create an active studio of their work. The program focuses on engaging the public with the work of textile artists and give an inside look into an artist’s studio. WIP artists maintain “live studio” times where they can interact with the community and discuss their processes and techniques. The artist will also leave behind a clear visual narrative so the public can get a glimpse of “work in progress” even when the artist isn’t present. This is an ideal program for artists who enjoy speaking about their creative process to the public and want to take advantage of a large Manhattan storefront to promote and display their work.

WIP cycles start on the first of every month and run for the full month. Install must take place between the 1st-3rd and deinstall must take place on the 28th-31st. Selected artists will commit to at least one weekly shift of public hours (Saturdays 2-6PM).

TAC WiP Program Provides:
– Storefront studio 10 x 5 feet and equipped with a table, chair, pin-board wall and shelving. Other equipment is depending on availability, and materials are not included.
– Access to Open Studio at TAC Brooklyn
– WiP residents will be featured and promoted on the TAC social media, including blog, Instagram, and Facebook
– 10% discount off TAC Classes

Composing in series, and often series within series, all of my projects from the past couple of decades have dealt with social issues, and more recently have embraced text as both content and image:

*  states of mind as one-word declarations (SO I WAS, LIKE....)

* the interior lives of artists (DESIDERATUM)

* odd courting and mating habits in the animal kingdom that sometimes echo our own (RE:PRODUCTION – Portraits)
* the dysfunction of todays politics seen through an historical perspective (WHEEL, DEAL, STEAL, THEN SPIN)

* death – it’s customs, euphemisms, architecture (THE FINAL FRONTIER)

* profiling and identity (The MARK Portraits)

* violence in America (TOKENS, PRECIS, HARBINGERS AND HERALDS, AMERICAN PIE, EIKONS)

Andrea Caldarise is a painter and collaborator inspired by exploring memories and happenstance conversations. Public spaces are visceral, storied environments—her art practice explores the psychological connection between landscapes and people. Each painting invokes a singular place, inspired by referencing the emotions, sights, and textures of an experience. Caldarise’s art focuses on connecting audiences with cityscapes and common, shared spaces within by capturing the experience of discovery, recreating a place through memories and imagination. Her work borders on magical realism, borrowing from observations, historical research, and surreal themes, Caldarise's artwork reveals the commonplace and extraordinary narratives in our environment.
