2017 Alumni - Artists Residency

If you are attending this residency with the expectations of critical feedback, well supplied work spaces, or interaction with the staff...this is not the residency you want to attend! Yes, the website is great and speak all the correct art language, but these things will never materialize. The communication between the staff and the artists is non-exisistant unless it regarding collecting your fees. There are no real facilities for making art, and or presenting work. When it comes time for your “open day” where you present your work, the outreach to local galleries, curators, press will not happen. There is no orientation for meeting your fellow residents either. You will have to figure this out for yourself. Also there are permanent artists studios upstairs, you won’t meet those artists either. Did I get work done while I was there? Yes I did. Could I have done that work in my own studio and saved the money? Yes! This residency presents well online, but in reality it’s not worth it.
