Open Call for Applications for the 2015-2016 Residency Year in Galveston

Published January 12, 2015
The Galveston Artist Residency is pleased to announce an Open Call for applications for the 2015-2016 Residency Year.


They will be awarding 3 residency grants for the time period of September 1, 2015 through August 1, 2016. The residency period for all three selected artists is the full 11 months.
GAR is a fully funded residency. Artists in residence will receive a studio, an apartment, a monthly stipend of $1,000 per month and a bicycle.


The residency is intended as a gift of time for the development of your practice. We are looking for visual artists that are at a point in their life where they need to focus on their work and will benefit from a period of intense studio time.
GAR is located in Galveston TX, a barrier island about one hour away from Houston, on the east Texas coast. Galveston is an eclectic mixture of tourism & industry with a rich history.
