Artist-In-Residency Program

About CCP’s AIR Program

In the summer of 2003, the Center welcomed its first Artist-in-Residence, Paul Furneaux, from Scotland. Since then, some 150 artists have completed residencies at CCP, coming from the United States, Australia, Russia, China, Ireland, Germany, Cuba, Argentina and many more countries.

The Artist-in-Residence Program (AIR) at CCP takes place in the Helen Frankenthaler Printmaking Cottage, a well-equipped studio with onsite living accommodations. Within this space, artists have the opportunity to produce a body of work in a supportive atmosphere for creative growth and development —using traditional as well as innovative printmaking techniques. Resident artists can work independently or with one of CCP’s staff printers or professional collaborators on an hourly or daily fee basis. All residency programs offer uninterrupted time and privacy 24/7.

Professional Development AIR

Artists who teach at colleges, universities and high schools throughout the United States may apply for one-or two-week residencies based on professional funding guidelines at your institution. This opportunity is meant to further individual artistic objectives in printmaking. CCP will match 50 percent of residency costs to a maximum of $2,500 associated with the AIR. Travel, food and materials are not covered expenses. The Grace Ross Shanley Education Fund and other secured funds will provide underwriting for the matching funding.

Self-Funded AIR

Experienced printmakers may apply for residencies of one or two weeks. Applications are due on June 30, 2018 for residencies in 2019. Residencies will be awarded as space permits, given the applicant’s preferred schedule.

Applications for 2018-2019 Residencies are due June 30, 2018. Payment can be made by check or online via PayPal to the email address jakers@contemprints.org
