Regional Emerging Artist-in-Residence


Raleigh, NC

2015/2016 Residency

Established in January 2000, the Regional Emerging Artist Residency provides emerging visual artists with time and space to explore their work in a supportive, thriving, artistic environment at Artspace. Two artists in their early professional careers are chosen from a regional pool of applicants every six months.

The residency includes a private, rent-free studio with 24-hour access. Artspace does NOT provide transportation or living quarters.

Each month residents are presented to the Triangle community during Artspace’s opening receptions and gallery walks. A fully supported exhibition of the resident’s work will be presented in the Artspace lobby after the residency.

The primary focus of the program is to provide an artist with time for independent work, but some participation in Artspace programs is expected. During the residency, artists must contribute to Artspace’s educational programs and tours by working in their studios during business hours, especially during scheduled tours. Resident artists will also be expected to give a presentation, talk, and/or demonstration to the public during their exhibition or 6-month residency.


1. Artspace’s Emerging Artist Residencies are available to promising artists in their formative years committed to advancing their own work and professional careers.

2. Artists must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents over 18 years of age and must currently reside in the Southeast (Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, and West Virginia).

3. Artists working in most mediums will be considered, including experimental media; however, artists working with toxic materials, hazardous machinery, etc. will not be considered due to limitations within the building.

4. Artists must not be enrolled in an institutional program of study, including instructional museum programs, during the residency period. (Applicants may be in school during application process.)

5. Artists must be ready to enjoy working in an open studio setting where the public is able to interact with the artist during public hours. Artists must work in the studio a minimum of 15 hours per week during public hours.

Full application details available on website:

Chicago Chicago Chicago Chicago! Multiples. Chicago October fair is calling for final entries!

Screen Shot 2014-09-10 at 12.19.13 PM

Multiples. is a temporary crossover exposition opening for one weekend in March and October 2014 showcasing objects produced as multiples. As a premise show, Multiples. seeks to span the division between art and craft, which are intimately connected, yet often artificially separated by preconceived notions of social value. Modeled as a hybrid of the contemporary commercial art fair, critical craft markets and an exploration of visual art forms, Multiples. is an affordable option for contemporary artists and makers looking to expose their practice and sell their editions, replicated hand-made, or manufactured works in Chicago. Please click the apply link above to showcase your work at our Spring or Fall expositions, or the about link to learn more about art multiples.

APPLY for this opportunity today! 

Last chance to enter is September 15th.


For a $450 table fee, you can apply for a standard table arrangement to sell your multiples. Applicants can apply as individuals, or with a group, though applications for groups should include the names of all participating artists, contact info and websites.

For a $225 table fee, you can apply for a shared table. If you have another vendor in mind with whom you’d like to share your table, please indicate their name(s) in the application. Otherwise, the Multiples. team can find another vendor to pair you with from our list of applicants.

NEW! For a $650 installation area fee, you can apply for an 80 sq ft space–this includes no walls, tables or other equipment or guarantee of available wall space–to setup installations of sculpture, installation art, displays or other types of area presentation that requires the additional space to present. Additional equipment may be provided upon request.

For a $225 wall fee, you can apply for a 4′ wide by 8′ high drywall section. Wall sections may be added exponentially (i.e., two 4′ x 8′ sections for $450, and so on) to create a booth for wall display within the fair. Tables are not provided for those applying for wall sections. For a visual example of the wall section layout, please click here.Please note that this is an early rate; after Aug. 15 wall section rates increase to $350.

For a $225 fee, you can also apply to sell your wares from a small roving exhibit, which could be a bicycle, cart, or even a handbag (what, you’ve never heard of Clutch Gallery?) instead of a standard table. This is a fun option for those whose showcase benefits from being able to move freely about the event. Please note this may also include video projection for the visual art category.
