Collaborative Residency 2017

Public Artist Residency_logo

The 2017 Public Artist Collaborative Residency program will provide an opportunity for 3 local artists from the Charlottesville area working with varied mediums to utilize our gallery as a pop-up studio space for the months of July and August, with a group exhibition in September. Artists will develop their practice in cooperation with each other over the course of 3 months. This pioneering program emphasizes a strong collaborative element by placing artists in close proximity and supporting them in the development of a shared vision for an outreach activity and a gallery exhibition. The program will further the development of the arts in Charlottesville by providing financial support, organizational support, publicity, and space to selected artists. It will accomplish all this while feeding the intrigue and interest of the community and putting a spotlight on creative collaboration.
