Fredericton Region Museum accepting applications for artist in residence program.
The Fredericton Region Museum’s Artist in Residence program seeks to inspire artists with Fredericton’s diverse and rich heritage. Art inspired by history can enhance connections between the museum and the public through its various forms.
The program is open to local artists, working in a visual media, whose work relates to Fredericton’s history. The artist studio will be located in a main floor gallery. During the three or six weeks of residency, the artist(s) will be expected to work in the studio allowing visitors access to the creative process. They will be expected to provide at least one of the following: a public lecture, a program geared towards the youth community, or a workshop. They will also agree to participate in media interviews intended to promote the program. Artists are to provide their own working materials and assist with promoting the residency. The Fredericton Region Museum will provide a gallery in a heritage building (approximately 9.5’ x 14.6’) to be converted into a studio, artist stipend, and advertising, as well as opportunities to display and sell their existing artwork in the gallery during their residency.
The Artist-in-Residence will be a practicing artist with a portfolio of published or exhibited works. Applications must be received by June 6 for summer residencies.
Submit proposals to the museum office by June 1, 2016. More information available here.
