Designed for artists of all career stages, the Artist-in-Residence Program at PenArt is an immersive studio experience awarded to six visual artists each year. The program prioritizes time and space for residents to engage fully in their creative practice, experiment, and pursue new projects and ideas.

For six weeks, residents receive:
– 24/7 access to a semi-private, 500+ sq ft workspace,
– Access to our printmaking, digital, metals, and ceramics studios,
– A studio visit with the session’s visiting critic
– Furnished housing located directly across the street from campus with a full kitchen, laundry, and wifi.

2024-25 Session Dates:
– October 31 – December 12, 2024
– January 9 – February 20, 2025
– April 3 – May 15, 2025

Application Fee
The cost to apply is $35. These fees go directly to the expenses associated with the selection process, including honorariums for the selection committee members and the cost of the application portal. Selection committee feedback is provided to all applicants. The non-refundable application fee is due at the time of submission. This fee must be paid by credit card via SlideRoom.

2024-25 Residency Fee
The actual cost of supporting an artist for six weeks is $3,600. Thanks to the generous support of donors and granting organizations, the artist’s contribution for an individual residency is $750 – split into three payments. A select number of the six residencies are fully funded fellowships awarded by the selection panel.
