Local Residency Program Taking Submissions for 2012
The Serie Project is accepting applications. The organization offers a nonprofit Artist in Residence (AIR) program, with the mission to promote Latino artists as well as to grant access to the serigraphy technique. The Serie Project hosts emerging and established professional artists who produce original works using any visual medium, are 18 years or older, and not currently enrolled in an educational institution. The organization strives for diversity; although it focuses on supporting Latino artists, a third of selected artists are of other ethnic backgrounds. A Master Printer is provided to guide resident artists through the printmaking process. The Serie Project has hosted more than 250 artists from the United States, Mexico, Brazil, Japan, and Spain since 1993.
Each artist will be given one week to produce one design and create up to 50 serigraph prints plus additional proofs, half of which the artist will keep. The Serie Project provides accommodations for resident artists, but cannot pay for travel expenses. Printing will take place at Coronado Studio in Austin, Texas. The Artist in Residence program will begin in January, and all prints must be completed by July.
The deadline for application is August 26, 2011. The review for selection will be held in September.
The following items are required of all applicants:
- Full-color image proposal for serigraph print (final image size must be 16 x 22″ or less)
- Three (3) digital slides of artwork created within the last 18 months
- Resume or CV with phone number, e-mail address, and mailing address
- Artist Statement and/or brief biography
- Application fee of $25, made payable to the Serie Project, Inc.
