Torpedo Factory Visiting Artist summer opportunity

Torpedo Factory Art Center Visiting Artist Program – Summer 2012

Deadline: February 15, 2012. Emerging and experienced artists are invited to apply for one, two, or three-month residencies between June 1 and August 31, 2012.

The TorpedoFactory ArtCenter (www.torpedofactory.org) in Alexandria Virginia is home to more than 140 visual artists working in 82 studios. Artists create in a wide variety of media including painting, fiber, jewelry, ceramics, printmaking, and sculpture. The Torpedo Factory is open to the public everyday; visitors are invited and welcomed into studios to watch artists at work, ask questions, and purchase original art – allowing the public an opportunity to share in the excitement and fascination of the creative process.

The projects undertaken by Visiting Artists for this self-directed, creative residency must be compatible with available working studio spaces and facilities.

Visiting Artists will be provided with studio space and will be able to display and sell original work.

Finalists will be selected by juror Paula Amt, owner of gallery plan b in Washington DC.
There is no application fee.

I recommend this residency for D.C. based artists as the space does not provide housing or funding.
