Residency Program



Each year the Galveston Artist Residency awards three artist-in-residence fellowships.  

For ten months, from October through July, resident artists receive 24/7 access to a 500 sq/ft studio space, a studio apartment a couple blocks away, and a monthly stipend of $1,100. Residents take part in a group exhibition near the end of their stay and have various studio visits throughout their time. While GAR facilitates this exhibition and studio visits, the ten months of unencumbered studio time is the primary focus of the GAR residency program, a gift of time for artists to sink in and dive deep into their work.
