Penland Winter Residency application deadline this Saturday
Apologies for the late notice, but the deadline to apply for a Penland School of Crafts Winter Residency is this Saturday, September 15th. From their website:
Penland Winter Residency is an opportunity for a small community of artists to work independently for a short term in our studios during Penland’s quiet season. There will be a limited number of artists per studio—enough people to provide conversation and creative camaraderie, but not so many that focused time in the studio is compromised. Our goal is to provide professional opportunities for individual or collaborating artists and encourage experimentation and inquiry in all media.
Penland Winter Residencies include:
• Well-equipped studios, unfettered time, and a beautiful retreat setting
• The following studios will be available: books, clay, drawing/painting, hot glass, flameworking, iron, letterpress, metals, printmaking, photography, papermaking, textiles, wood, and writing.
• We welcome writers. We offer shared work spaces for resident writers in one of our quieter studios.
• There will be a studio assistant in each studio to help residents with projects if and as needed. Please note: our studio assistants are not instructors; we assume all residents are able and willing to work independently with only minimal assistance here and there.
Residencies run one to four weeks between December 30, 2018 and January 26, 2019.
Clay Club meets at artist studios and other locations throughout Western North Carolina, usually on the second Wednesday of the month. All potters and ceramic artists are welcome!
