On::View Artist in Resident Program

Project based residency opportunity in Savannah's Starland district.

On::View Artist in Resident Program

Starting in early 2018 Sulfur Studios will be offering a new opportunity for artists in the greater Savannah area (25 mi radius from the Studios).  Our On::View residency will provide a free, high visibility studio space for an artist to complete a four week project.

Located just inside the lobby of Sulfur Studios, the residency space is 12 x 14 feet, with built-in movable walls and shelving, which can be closed off and locked when the resident is not in.  The residency studio has large, street level, east facing windows, which will allow the community to view residents’ work outside of public open hours.  Artists may work in any medium suitable to the space. Successful applicants will propose a project that will engage the community over the course of the residency period.

The residency space has open air flow into the lobby and gallery area which makes the following restrictions necessary:

-No aerosol or other toxic/high-voc materials are allowed in the space.  

-No ongoing or repetitive loud noises, such as grinding.  Occasional use of hand and power tools IS allowed.

 

Nitty Gritty Details:

- Residents will have 24 hour access to the space but must also commit to working in their studio during our public hours from noon to 5pm at least one day a week, and must be open to talking to visitors about their concepts and process.  

-Residents must be present during the First Friday Open Studios which will fall near the end of their residency.

-Residents are encouraged to give a public lecture or workshop, but it is not required.  

-The residency space is climate controlled, but due to its proximity to the doors and the large windows it can be warmer/cooler than the rest of the space depending on outside temperature.

-Limited furnishings are available, but accepted applicants must supply their own materials and supplies.  

-Sulfur Studios does not insure the property of the artist in resident.  Limited locking storage will be provided.

-Current Studio members or artists who have rented a studio at Sulfur Studios in the last 6 months are not eligible for this residency.

-Collaborative teams are eligible for the residency. One proposal should be submitted for the entire team.

-Selected artists will be required to pay a security deposit of $100.00 upon confirming their acceptance.  This will be returned at the end of the residency period if all requirements have been met and the space is left in good condition.

-Selected artists will also be asked to donate one piece to our 2018 fundraiser.

 

The initial round of applications will be for the following residency periods:

Residency period 1: February 6th - March 4th

Residency period 2: March 13th - April 9th

Residency period 3: April 11th - May 6th

 

Application Process:

-Click here to pay the $25.00 Entry Fee ($20 for Sulfur Studios Members)

-Send an email with a one-page proposal describing your artistic practice and outlining the project you’ll be working on during the residency.  If you would like to have a public lecture or workshop describe it briefly as well.  Specify your 1st, 2nd, and 3rd choice for residency months, and indicate any month you are NOT available. Attach this proposal as a word document or pdf.

-Also attach a portfolio that includes 10 images of recent work and a bio and/or resume.  Alternatively you may provide a link to a website with this information.

Finalists will be required to have a phone or in-person interview with Sulfur Studios members before final confirmation.

Applications will be judged on the quality of the artist’s work and the strength of the project proposal.  Projects that take into consideration the unique space and its potential for community engagement will be given priority. The jury will consist of current Sulfur Studios members and local art professionals. Artists will receive a confirmation email within 48 hours of submitting their application.
