The Gateway Community Development Corporation is looking for local artists to apply for three four-month residencies over the next year.
It's part of the Artist in Residence Studio Program offered by the Gateway CDC, which promotes economic development in North Brentwood, Brentwood and Mount Rainier.
Artists of all mediums and visual art disciplines are encourage to apply, according to an announcement from the Gateway CDC. However, because the studio shares space with other working artists and gallery visitors, chemicals and methods used will be considered when choosing applicants.
Through the Artist in Residence Studio Program, selected artists will have rent and utility-free access to a 350-square foot studio at the 39th Street Gallery in Brentwood, above the Gateway Arts Center.
The selected artists will also have to help out at the gallery. The residency culminates with a presentation by the selected artist at the end of their four-month term of residency.
The deadline to apply for next year's Artist in Residency Program is 5p.m., Nov. 16, 2012. The first residency term begins on Dec. 1, 2012.
