Emerging Artist in Residence (EAiR) Program 

 

 SEPTEMBER 23–NOVEMBER 15, 2013

The EAiR program supports artists who are making a transition in their professional lives. Whether moving from academia to a professional studio practice, taking up a new medium, or beginning a new body of work, artists find this independent residency ideal for contemplation, research, and experimentation. The program provides artists with a place and the time to develop an idea or project in glass, with the potential for realizing a new body of work. 

The residency requires a project proposal and supports kilnworking, coldworking, printmaking, and use of mixed media but not hot glassworking. The EAiR program is an independent artist’s residency, so no instruction is available and some glassmaking experience is required. 

Residents have access to many Pilchuck studios, including the glass-plate printmaking (vitreography) studio; plaster studio; fusing, slumping, and casting kilns; flameworking torch; and coldworking equipment. No hot glassworking is available. 

The residency requires full-time participation by six artists. Residents should expect to partake in communal studio clean-ups and be available to visitors during the Auction Tour, among other activities. 

 
Included in the residency award is a stipend of US$1,000 per artist, open studio space, shared cooking facilities, and a private room in a cottage with shared bath. Materials, instruction, food, and travel reimbursement are not provided.
