Artist in Residence Opportunity!

Good afternoon all!

We’ve just received word about this fantastic opportunity for an Artist in Residence.Great for grads and emerging artists…

Straight from the source:

Artist in Residence Program

The Burlington Handweavers and Spinners Guild (BHSG), with the encouragement of the Burlington Art Centre (BAC), invites applications to an Artist in Residence opportunity for the fall of 2012.

Our goal with this residency is to share our studio and our collective knowledge with an emerging artist who wants to grow and develop the art form we care so much about. It will enable and assist a recent textile art graduate wishing to incorporate weaving and/or spinning in his/her work. The combination of studio space, equipment, support and mentorship will allow the successful candidate to develop and build a body of work.”

Good luck!

Alumni Spotlight: Deborah Murphy

HSTA- VCAD and Glassblowing alumni, Deb Murphy, has recently been announced as an artist-in-residence at the newly resurrected Art in the Park at Pukaskwa National Park. Deborah will be in residence Friday, June 3 – Wednesday, June 8, 2011.

Approaching 60 and obsessing with the transience of life, Deborah resurrects life’s rejects in the materials she uses – from the fungi in her Gooderham, ON yard to the electrical wiring from her husband’s work to the windows from her godparents’ home.  “My art escapes me with the force of a robust fart that refuses to be contained; accompanied by laughter and protests of surprise,” she says.  Pukaskwa can’t wait to spend some time laughing with Deborah this spring! While in residence, Deborah will be offering workshops (Details to TBA.)

The resurrection all started with a local artist prompting, begging, nagging staff at the Park to bring back Pukaskwa’s Art in the Park program. They listened, and there’s no better year for it – this year marks 100 years for the world’s FIRST national parks system. Parks Canada is celebrating its 100th, and HSTA is proud that Deb is a part of it.

Pukaskwa located at the end of Highway 627, 15km south of the TransCanada Highway 17. The closest communities are Pic River First Nation and Heron Bay, also on Highway 627, and Marathon,a 25 minute drive west of the park. It is a 4.5 hour drive northwest of Sault Ste. Marie, ON and a 3.5 hour drive east of Thunder Bay.

Pukaskwa is a spectacular wilderness park located on the most rugged and wild section of the Lake Superior coast. Tucked into this shoreline is the 67-site Hattie Cove Campground. Known for its quiet and intimate feel, Hattie Cove is the sort of hidden gem the pulls visitors back year after year. But , Lake Superior makes its own weather. Even in the summer months, visitors should expect cool temperatures. Daytime highs rarely go higher than 25°C and evenings can be chilly around the fire. On the bright side, the days there are long!

Congrats again Deb!

New Artist-in-Residency in Wood Buffalo

March 17, 2011 § Leave a comment

Call for Submissions: New Artist Residency, Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo, Fort McMurray
The Artist in Residency Program in Fort McMurray is the first of its kind in the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo. The program supplies artists with a dedicated studio space in a converted, multiuse facility that can provide from three to six studios. This innovative and unique opportunity commences June 6, 2011 and will continue for three months.
The program will enable a blend of emergent as well as mid-career artists to not only create and explore, but also, to exchange ideas and insights within a multi-disciplinary environment. The residency includes the studio space (with no associated fee), delivery of an artist talk (15-20 minutes), demonstration and instructional opportunities and the display of artwork completed during the three-month program at a group exhibition in a
local gallery.

Each artist in residence will be asked to become an ambassador for the regional art community during their stay. As ambassadors, the artists will be required to host open studio hours once a week at a time when the public can access their workspaces.

Canadian visual artists who are interested in Wood Buffalo’s new Artist in Residency Program are invited to submit a proposal before April 22, 2011 at 4:30 p.m. For this initial residency, we are only
accepting proposals in the following mediums:

• Painting (acrylic & watercolour)
• Digital media
• Drawing
• Textile & Fibre Arts

Applicants will be selected according to the quality of work submitted, their demonstration of commitment to serious practice and their explanation about how the residency will meet their artistic objectives. Short-listed applicants will be notified by April 29, 2011 at 4:30 p.m.

Artist-in-Residence at Pukaskwa Park

Rob Stimpson, an instructor in Photography at HSTA, passed on this Artist-in-Residence Opportunity to HSTA along with the above amazing picture he captured while at the park and his very encouraging thoughts:

“I have paddled the shores of Pukaskwa and hiked its trails on many occasions – this is truly one of Ontario’s most spectacular and powerful landscapes. If you are looking for inspiration – this park is the place to be.”
