The Firehouse Plaza Art Gallery is pleased to offer a studio workspace residency for the Summer 2015. Open to all national artists producing socially engaging art and media, the Artist Workspace Residency will run from June 1st through August 3rd , 2015. The Gallery welcomes emerging and under-represented national artists. The selected artist will use the Gallery space as an art studio working space Monday through Thursday. The physical space is a college art gallery with white walls, tile floors and abundant natural light. The Gallery has two main spaces: one room with large floor-to-ceiling windows facing a courtyard patio, and another interior gallery space with a small window.

The summer in residency program at the Firehouse Plaza Art Gallery is intended to provide an artist with a studio opportunity to work on a project of his or her choosing, and to interact with the public and the art/student community. During the residency period, the artist is required to present a short talk and discussion each week to students as well as maintain an “open door” visiting policy, with hours to be discussed upon acceptance.

Artists are selected through a juried process. Decisions by the Gallery Committee
are final. Artists should be able to work independently. Artists will supply their
own materials. This workspace residency does not include housing.
