Call to Artists!
The 2017 CGCA Fellowship Applications for three-month and project-based residencies are now available online. We welcome your proposals by the deadline of November 20, 2016.
2017 Three-Month Fellowship Application
In 2017, the CGCA will offer 3-month fellowships from April 19 – July 19. The three-month, Spring Fellowships are no longer available to former CGCA Fellows. Only artists who have never been through the program may apply for three-month sessions. All artists can apply for a short-term, project-based Fellowship to take place during scheduled times within the months of September – December. However, we request new artists choose one or the other.
During their Fellowships, artists have the use of private studios and excellent facilities within a respectful sanctuary of concentrated time.
This is an exceptional opportunity for artists to utilize one of the finest facilities of the glass medium, known internationally. Not only do artists get exceptional access to these facilities and various process mediums, but they also receive stipends, the use of private studios, technical assistance, comfortable housing and institutional support. In addition, they are embraced by a dedicated and warm staff, all on a beautiful 50+ acre campus that is truly a creative sanctuary.
2017 Project-Based Fellowship Application
In 2017, WheatonArts will offer short-term, project-based residencies within the months of September – December. These residencies were developed in response to the changing needs of artists due to continued economic uncertainty and the increasing difficulty of leaving jobs, families and studios. This shift also responds, in part, to the strategic goal of WheatonArts to better serve artists while more fully integrating their activity with the visitor experience.
Artists are encouraged to submit proposals ranging from six-week residencies to intermittent residencies (scheduled repeat visits), to short-term project support.Applicants are also encouraged to submit projects that include performance-based work, short-term exhibits/installations and use of the Museum of American Glass resources.
Fellowships will be offered within the months of September – December, 2017. Due to the anticipated range of proposals, exact session dates will not be determined until after the peer-review jury concludes and projects/residencies are carefully aligned with studio and housing capacity. Short-term, project-based residencies will be selected with preference for self-sufficient artists/teams and the public benefit offered.
Applicants will be asked to define the general residency length desired on the application form. We also ask that you clearly state in the artist statement, any information or desired schedules for your proposed residency.
