About the Residency:
Residents will be awarded studios, each approximately 600 sq ft, for 6
months, with 24 hr access, access to visiting curators and other
gallery directors, a solo exhibition in our project space, and
inclusion in an end-of-program catalog highlighting their work over
the length of the residency. The current Gallery Aferro building can
accommodate up to 6 artists at a time. Artists will be selected on the
basis of quality of work, commitment to their field, demonstrated
need, and the ability to interact positively with the community at
Alumni Gallery Aferro Studio residents have commented that the chance
for informal networking with local, national and international peers
afforded by residency was one of the best aspects of their experience,
with self-organized activities such as collaborative projects and
critique sessions. Also mentioned by residents consistently as a
unique and valuable aspect of the program was temporary ownership of a
platform to interact with the public.
The studios are strictly work only spaces. The studios are raw spaces
with minimal amenities. Artists who are accepted into the program must
be prepared to actively use their studio. Residencies will begin on
August 20th, 2011 and end February 20th, 2012.
