Galveston Artist Residency exists to promote and encourage the knowledge and appreciation of visual art by giving artists a gift of time and space for the development of their work. We provide studio space, accommodation and a stipend to three artists annually.
GAR accepts applications for residency grants once a year on an 'open call' basis. Recipients of GAR residency grants are chosen by a panel of art professionals, which changes from year to year. For more information on applying to GAR, please visit our page on how to apply.
The GAR program is open to visual artists working in any medium. Recipients will be at a point in their career where they will benefit from a period of intense, focused studio time. Emerging artists as well as mature established artists are eligible.
GAR is located in a pair of radically reimagined and rebuilt industrial structures on the edge of downtown Galveston. In addition to our residency program, the GAR Gallery and Courtyards host various public programs such as art exhibitions, film series, performances, open studios, lectures, etc.
