Summer Artist Residency 2...

Gallery 263 is pleased to offer our 700-square foot space to artists of all media and experience levels for 6 weeks in the Summer of 2015.  We strive to give the local Boston and Cambridge community a stake in the process, not just the product, of art making.  Enjoy a comfortable, collaborative environment in which to incubate ideas, fuel discussion, and produce new work.  This is a non-live-in, shared residency opportunity, and will be awarded to up to four solo artists or to one collective of artists.  Artists benefit from full access to our space and amenities, engage the public with at least one outreach event, and conclude their stay with a showcase.


Residency Period: 6 weeks; June 1 - July 11, 2015

Deadline to apply: Friday May 8, 11:59pm

Notification: Monday May 11
