Light Works: Artist-In-Residence Program
January 16, 2011 /Photography News/ Each year Light Work invites 12-15 artists to participate in its residency program, including one artist co-sponsored by Autograph ABP. Artists selected for the residency program are invited to live in Syracuse for one month. They receive a $4,000 stipend, an apartment to stay in, a private digital studio, a private darkroom, and 24-hour access to Light Works' facility.
Participants in the residency program are expected to use their month to pursue their own projects: photographing in the area, printing for a specific project or book, and so on. Work produced by the Artists-in-Residence will also be published in Light Work's publication Contact Sheet.
All artists working in photography and related media are eligible to apply to the Light Work Artist-in-Residence program. There is no application form or deadline.
Artists should submit the following:
- Letter of intent, describing plans for residency
- Current resume, including exhibition record
- Artist statement
- Around twenty images (slides, proof prints, or disk) of your most recent work or current project, plus any supporting material you feel would be appropriate in evaluating your application
- Postage for the return of materials, or note to discard material after review process (international artists can include credit card information for return postage)
The application process takes an average of three to four months.
