Artist in Residence Cycle 10

Description 

The Textile Arts Center’s Artist in Residence (TAC AIR) program equips emerging artists and designers with resources and skills to better articulate their practices and contribute to their communities. Situated at the intersection of a studio residency and an academic program, TAC AIR combines studio access with a rigorous interdisciplinary curriculum, regular critical dialogue and mentorship. The residency culminates in a group exhibition which showcases and promotes residents’ work at both a regional and national level through additional catalogue materials. The 8 artists to participate in the Cycle 10 of the AIR program, running from October 2018-June 2019, will be selected by a jury of TAC staff and professionals working in different fields of textile arts.

  • Individual studio space
