Manifest Gallery Aritst Residency

M.A.R. – Manifest Artist Residency

Deadline: April 1, 2012

For complete details and to apply visit: http://www.manifestgallery.org/mar

Notification of Selection: On or around May 1, 2012

Residency Term: Starting by July 1, 2012, and running for one calendar year.

Manifest is excited to announce a major new program to join our already robust Gallery, Drawing Center, and Press activities. The MAR will become the fourth leg of our core programming, expanding how the Cincinnati-based non-profit organization serves artists engaged in creative research, and the general public engaged in cultural exposure. The MAR award will leverage opportunities for synergy between contemporary art exhibition and studio work under the same roof.

Artists are invited to submit complete applications to the new Manifest Artist Residency program (MAR). Applications will be reviewed on a competitive basis. One artist will be selected as the recipient of the MAR award which consists of the following:

Free 24/7 use of a private studio consisting of approximately five hundred square feet of studio and display space (two north-lit rooms and a hallway) for a period of one year (including nominal utilities). (The studio is not intended for use as a residence.)

Free Drawing League Membership at Manifest Drawing Center which provides access to approximately 250 hours of life drawing sessions through weekly Open Figure and quarterly Drawing Marathon offerings.

The artist will be given the consideration for teaching courses in our Drawing Center studio program, for pay, during the course of the residency. This will be contingent upon suitability and qualifications, as well as course enrollment, and will be determined by the Director of the Drawing Center.

Regular public exposure of artwork and studio during Manifest exhibit receptions to over 1500 members of the public (9 events across the year).

The opportunity to submit to any and all of Manifest’s calls for entry for which the artist is eligible, including solo show proposals, with the entry fees waived for all submissions. Works submitted by the artist will still be juried through the blind jury committee process used for all Manifest projects.

The program is open for application by any serious emerging or established artist, including recent graduates from college art programs.

The ideal candidate for the award of the program may be working in any media or genre.

The residency studio is adjacent to Manifest Gallery in historic East Walnut Hills (Cincinnati, Ohio) sharing a common hallway in the same building. The studio consists of two north-lit rooms on the ground floor and a semi-private hallway usable for display. The residency space totals approximately 500 square feet.
