Highlighting & preserving women in Art
This summer, BRIC will hold its second annual Visual Artist Residency program. Similar to last year, two residents will have space in the Artists Studio at BRIC House. In addition, BRIC is pleased to announce that we are partnering with Saint Anne’s School to provide additional studio space for one resident at 33 Clinton Street in Brooklyn Heights, the former space of BRIC Rotunda Gallery!
Space will be provided to selected residents free of charge; no honoraria or artists fees are offered. The residency is open to both New York area artists as well as those from other parts of the United States who wish to spend time and work in the city. Please be advised that we are unable to fund travel or living expenses. Applicants must be U.S. citizens or legal permanent residents.
Artists who are accepted into the program must commit to using their studio a significant amount of time each week.
During the residency, artists will be expected to engage with the public through open studio events, an informal illustrated talk on BRIC’s stoop, or through other forms of audience engagement.
BRIC will provide exposure for your work through multiple means, including studio visits with BRIC’s curatorial staff and profiles to be published on BRIC’s website or Blog.
This residency is available to professional, practicing artists and MFA students.
This residency is open to emerging artists who demonstrate much promise, and to mid-career artists with a documented record of exhibitions and other accomplishments. We seek artists who will be able to work independently and productively during the eight-week period (June 22 – August 14, 2015) and who have a solid plan of work for their residency period.
Because BRIC House is a public space with many visitors and activities each week, we will select artists in residence whose work involves little or no noise, no fumes or toxic materials, and who require only moderate access to water (there is a public bathroom near the Artist Studio and a utility sink in the loading dock area, but no sink in the studio spaces).
A panel consisting of BRIC’s curatorial staff, Gallery Manager, and past Residency artists will select this summer’s Residents.
