Artist in Residence

Posted:
Dec 23, 2019
Visionaries and Voices (V+V) is pleased to present our first artist in residence program for the 2020 exhibition season.  V+V is an inclusive arts organization providing creative, professional, and educational opportunities to artists with and without disabilities.  We are not a teaching institution but rather an open studio where artists can work and grow individually as professional artists. The studio atmosphere is truly a unique experience comprised of many voices, ideologies, and methods of production all happening at once.  We feel strongly that it could be a life-changing opportunity for an artist in residence. We are looking for an artist who is interested in being part of the community, making work based on the experience, and presenting a culminating exhibition at the Northside Gallery. The exhibition is tentatively planned for late Summer of 2020 after a two-month residency, but all dates and times are flexible depending on scheduling needs. The artist in residence will have the opportunity to work alongside V+V artists in a communal studio, and can have storage available as needed.  V+V operates two different studios in Cincinnati. A $2,000 stipend is provided.  
 
Interested applicants should email a paragraph explaining past work and a rough proposal of how time will be spent during the two-month residency at V+V.  Please also provide a link to a website, portfolio, or attach up to (3) .jpeg images no larger than 150dpi. The studios primarily focus on painting and ceramics but other areas are growing and we are open to all modes of art production.  All questions and materials should be sent to Skip Cullen at scullen@visionariesandvoices.com with the email title “Your Last Name + AIR Application.”  Applications will be accepted through January 31st, 2020. A review committee will announce the winning applicant in late February via email.
