2015-2016 LAWNDALE ARTIST STUDIO PROGRAM
Lawndale is pleased to announce the tenth round of the Lawndale Artist Studio Program. The program is part of Lawndale's ongoing commitment to support the creation of contemporary art by Gulf Coast area artists. With an emphasis on emerging practices, the program provides three artists with non-residential studio space on the third floor of the Lawndale Art Center at 4912 Main Street in the heart of Houston's Museum District.
Artists have full access to their studios 24 hours a day, seven days a week; access to visiting artists, writers and curators; and receive a $500 monthly stipend for the duration of the program together with an initial $1500 materials allowance. Participating artists are expected to spend a minimum of 16 hours a week in the studio. Each artist will also be expected to present a workshop to the general public and the local arts community to share their practice or explore a related topic.
At the completion of the residency, the works produced during the 2015-2016 program will be exhibited at Lawndale Art Center in May 2016. Lawndale will work with resident artists to create additional exhibition opportunities during their residency.
Successful applicants will be notified no later than July 15, 2015.
The three residents will be selected by a three-person panel of arts professionals. The selection will be based on the quality of submitted work samples, statement of intent and references.
