The Galveston Artist Residency is pleased to announce an Open Call for applications for the 2017 - 2018 Residency Year. We will be awarding 3 residency grants for the time period of September 1, 2017 through August 1, 2018. Residencies are for the full 11 months.

GAR is a fully funded residency.  Artists in residence will receive a studio, an apartment, a monthly stipend of $1,000 per month and a bicycle.

The residency is intended as a gift of time for the development of your practice. We are looking for visual artists that are at a point in their life where they need to focus on their work and will benefit from a period of intense studio time.

GAR is located in Galveston TX, a barrier island about one hour away from Houston, on the east Texas coast. Galveston is an eclectic mixture of tourism & industry with a rich history.

If you are interested in being considered for the Residency program please fill out an application online. The deadline is March 11th, 2017 at 12am CST.
