Atlanta Printmakers Studio’s annual Emerging Artist Residency was established in 2009 to provide emerging artists with the resources necessary for completing a printmaking project of their proposal as well as an opportunity for professional development. The residency offers the artists a unique opportunity to work with practicing artists of varied backgrounds and offering diverse skills.
The studio provides capabilities for intaglio, monotype, woodcut, linocut, letterpress, screen print, paper making, book arts and various mixed media techniques (see our website for detailed list of equipment available.) Up to three winning artists will be chosen by an independent panel on the basis of the proposal, including both concept and feasibility.
THE RESIDENCY AWARDS:
Two to three artists are selected per year and each receives studio access, free class, personal mentoring, stipend, group exhibit, and 1 yr membership.
Studio Access is limited to January – May 2021. June 2021 is for curating and prepping prints for the exhibit – having them ready to hang during the last week of June 2021.
The Emerging Artist Residency program is open to all emerging printmakers who already possess basic training in traditional printmaking techniques, and can provide original examples of such work. For the purposes of this program, an emerging artist is someone who shows significant potential, yet has not achieved a corresponding amount of professional accomplishment and recognition as an artist, regardless of age or recognition in other fields.
Applicants must be at least 18 years old and not a full time student.
Applicants from out of town are welcome, but please note that housing and transportation are not included with this program. All expenses and arrangements related to transportation, housing or other living expenses are the responsibility of the Artist.
APS members, contracted APS instructors and volunteers are eligible to apply. APS Board of Directors and employees are not eligible to apply.
