The Abbotsford Arts Council is accepting applications from local artists on an ongoing basis for its Artist In Residence Program. The AiR is a self-directed program offering opportunities for artists to work in the secondary space of the Kariton Art Gallery. This residency accommodates artists working in painting, drawing, installation, photography, sculpture, print, fibre, video, film, writing and literary arts, performance and applied arts for the production of new or ongoing bodies of work. In exchange, artists will facilitate an outreach or education program for the local community, set weekly hours to interact with the public through their art, and may participate in an exhibit if deemed appropriate.
This residency is open to artists of all disciplines throughout the Lower Mainland. The arts council is seeking an artist who will benefit from public work experience and has an ongoing, self-directed, independent practice. Two artists may apply together, partnerships and collectives are welcome. Suitability and limitations of the space will be taken into consideration. Artist in Residence are required to become a member of the Abbotsford Arts Council in order to participate in the program, but do not need to be members to apply.
