Kimmel Harding Nelson Center for the Arts

January 7, 2013

WHO:

Kimmel Harding Nelson Center for the Arts offers up to sixty juried residencies per year to working visual artists, writers, composers, and interdisciplinary artists from across the country and around the world. The Center does not discriminate on the basis of disability, sex, age, race, religion, or national origin.

WHAT:

Residencies are available for 2 to 8 weeks stays. Each resident receives a $100 stipend per week, free housing, and a separate studio. The Center can house up to five artists of various disciplines at any given time. The Center’s program gives special support to emerging artists by reserving a number of “transitional” residencies for recent masters degree graduates (within two years of application deadline). The application process is the same for all applicants, however applications from artists in transition following graduation from an accredited degree program receive special consideration.

Visual artists work in one of three studios, two of which are approximately 425 square feet and one that is 258 square feet, outfitted with work tables, running water and storage shelves. Hand tools, a table saw, a scroll saw and painting easels are available.

For printmakers, the Center offers a letterpress studio with a Vandercook Sp15 press and a standard proof press. The Harry Duncan Letterpress Studio also features a variety of furniture and fonts, an inventory of tools and inks, as well as a boxcar base for resident use.

Composers are provided a studio equipped with a Yamaha upright piano, a set of digital monitors and a compact mixer. The composer’s studio is spacious, comfortable and quiet, but not soundproof.

A private writer’s studio is located within each of the double-occupancy apartments featuring computer desks, shelving, and abundant natural light.

WHEN:

September 1 is the deadline for Session 1 residencies to take place the following January – June.

March 1 is the deadline for Session 2 residencies to take place the following July – December.
