Description

Sulfur Studios is a project of ARTS Southeast - a nonprofit whose mission is to make Savannah a destination for art and culture in the Southeast by supporting established and emerging artists and engaging a diverse community with creative programming by developing awareness and appreciation of the arts.

Sulfur Studios is home to 26 Artist Studios, our Main Gallery, the ON::View Artist Residency, Sulfur Studios’ Community Darkroom & the Sulfur Shop.

ON::View Artist Residency

To support our ongoing mission to provide a vibrant and supportive home for Savannah's creative community, Sulfur Studios offers the ON::VIEW Artist-in-Residency Program.  

Located in the heart of Savannah’s Starland District at Sulfur Studios, the ON::VIEW Artist Residency provides a free, high visibility studio space for an artist to complete a focused project. The studio’s large windows look out onto Bull Street, the district’s main street, allowing the artists’ work to be on view to the community at all times. Sulfur Studios’ visitors and passersby on the sidewalk witness the artists’ process as it unfolds in real time, seeing all the steps involved from concept to final execution. Community events like workshops, performances, public art projects and artist talks, offer creative ways to interact with the public. From fiber to found object, wearable sculpture to 3D printed jewelry, the ON::View Residency supports artists working in all media and from across the globe.

Just five blocks east of the Residency Studio, the 5th Dimension Apartment features a full kitchen, bath and main room to comfortably house the Artist (+1 guest if requested) for month-long residency stays. It is our hope that by providing lodging for ON::View Artists that we will accommodate a diverse range of creatives from far and wide, as we continue to fulfill our mission to make Savannah a destination for the arts.

Artists will have multiple opportunities to meet and connect with the local art community, and our On::Call for ON::View list of Savannah experts provides unique one-on-one access to some of the city’s most knowledgeable and esteemed citizens specializing in Savannah history, art, activism, music and more, in support of Residents’ research and to provide additional avenues of community support during their residency period.

Successful applicants will propose a project that will engage the community over the course of the residency period. While the standard Residency period is approximately 1 month in duration, artists may propose longer projects. If a longer period is proposed, artists must explain how they will use the additional time and must be available for a Zoom interview to discuss their proposal and provide a minimum of 2 references.

* Current Studio members or artists who have rented a studio at Sulfur Studios in the last 6 months are not eligible for this Residency.
