Residencies Manifest Gallery’ MAR Award
International Deadline: April 9, 2017 – Artists are invited to submit complete applications to Manifest’s Artist Residency program (MAR). Applications will be reviewed on a competitive basis. One or two artists will be selected as the recipient(s) of the MAR award of a free studio for a year plus many other benefits associated with Manifest’s programs.
The MAR is open for application by serious emerging or established adult artists of all ages and levels, and is particularly suited to recent college graduates or artists seeking a professional catalyst. The program has proven to be an ideal transition between academic study and a professional career as a visual artist (or teaching artist), or between undergraduate and graduate study. MAR artists have gone on to win prestigious awards, grants, and exhibition exposure around the U.S. and beyond, and many have gained acceptance into graduate school or obtained teaching positions in academic institutions.
The MAR provides a studio free for a year, adjacent to Manifest Gallery, as well as a solo exhibition of works created during the year-long program. Other benefits include the option to develop and teach courses (for pay) at the Manifest Drawing Center, free access to the Drawing Center Darkroom, public exposure and dialog about in-studio works in progress, coordinated studio visits by key arts professionals in the Cincinnati region, participation in Manifest Gallery exhibition committee processes, and more.
The ideal candidate for the award of the program may be working in any media or genre, but would also make reasonable use of the available Manifest Drawing Center opportunities even if this is ancillary activity to their primary work. Suitability for teaching will be considered, but will not be a primary factor in the selection process, and a teaching appointment is not guaranteed. The priority of the MAR is to help artists develop their work and studio practice for future
Residency commences: July 1, 2017 (for a one year period)/.
The value of the award is estimated at approximately $10,000 per artist.
Each application must be accompanied by a $50 non-refundable submission fee.
