Resident Artist

Artists guided by specific project goals may apply to rent one of our two private studio spaces for a four-month term.  The monthly fee of $50 includes 75 sf private workspace in a secure building; wifi included. Residents will be featured on the YAH website. Upon completion of the residency project, artists work will be featured in a Your Are Here gallery resident artist exhibition.

 

Online Satellite Artist

Artists may apply to be featured on You Are Here all online media platforms as a Satellite Artist for a four month period. Satellite Artists will be featured online by You Are Here and will be also expected to post at regular intervals on the You Are Here social media platforms.  There will be only one Satellite Artist featured at any given time. Satellite Artists will also be included in the resident artist gallery exhibition.

 

Artists wishing to apply for You Are Here Resident or Satellite status must meet the following criteria:

  • Be at least 18 years of age

  • Be practicing in a medium that is appropriate to the limitations of the You Are Here building and studio spaces.  (For Example: Nothing that involves fire or creates toxic fumes or dust.)

  • Preference will be given to artists whose work reflects locality, or issues relevant to place, heritage, identity, community, or the environment. Artists may propose a community project such as a public art project or one that actively engages members of the broader community with demonstrable results.

  • Work goals must be clearly stated and capable of being addressed during the residency period.

 

Artists should apply by submitting six digital images of recent work, a cv, artist statement regarding their goals for the residency period, and any calendar constraints.  Indicate whether seeking onsite residency or to be a satellite artist. Accepted artists will sign a contract that includes terms of the residency and stated goals.

Applications are reviewed as received and are accepted at Yah406clay@gmail.com

In October, we welcome Jessica Higo Walbridge as our Satellite Artist.  Jess will not be in residence at YAH, but will be in residence on our website and social media.  She is a master crocheter whose intention is “to bring ‘women’s work’ into a fine art setting” with her references to monster and powerful women.  She has made her body of work by morphing classical concepts, feminist undertones, and monstrous themes into unexpected fiber pieces.

Be sure to check in often, beginning in October, to see what Jess is working on for our January gallery exhibition.
