Call for Artist in Residence – SNAP Gallery: Edmonton, AB

Society of Northern Alberta Printmakers logoSNAP is accepting submission for the 2016 Emerging Artist in Residence Program

The Emerging AIR Program offers emerging artists and recent graduates the opportunity to work rent-free at the SNAP Printshop for a 6 month term. The residency is aimed at providing a new environment and stimuli for the artist to help expand her or his artistic practice. During the residency, artists are invited to give a lecture on their work and offer a workshop or demonstration of their specific technique(s). The program offers emerging artists a unique opportunity to exchange ideas with other print artists and discover Edmonton’s internationally acclaimed arts community while further developing their practice.

To maximize the potential for artistic growth, and to encourage the production of a body of work outside of a formal institution an exhibition is a requirement of the residency. The exhibition directly follows the residency. The exhibition will occur in either SNAP’s community or studio galleries within 6 months of the end of the residency. Residency terms run September – February and/or January-June.

Deadline: June 30, 2016, by 5:00PM.
