canadian ceramic residency opportunity!

Open to emerging and established visual artists in ceramic or overlapping interdisciplinary practices. Applications are accepted on-line only.

The program provides ceramic artists the ability to work in a supportive community environment of like-minded individuals, to share their expertise and vision, to inspire excellence and create work at the highest level in a nurturing and creative environment.

The residency is a multi-faceted experience that will include opportunities for teaching, community outreach, interaction with other artists, and studio care, and will culminate in an exhibition of new work.

Professional Development, Opportunities & Obligations

The Resident Artist Program offers individuals the opportunity to further develop their work, and to establish professional practices and standards. Both Centers offer the support of their staff and facilities to help Resident Artists reach the next stage of development in their careers.

The Caetani Centre, ACNO & VCAC will facilitate workshops, receptions, and public programming based around the participating artist’s work. All organizations work together to provide additional opportunities for public educational programs, artist presentations, and feedback from other artists and mentors. The artist may propose additional events and community programming if they choose.

As a relatively new program, the Caetani Centre is interested in feedback and constructive criticism, and requests that the participant submit an exit survey upon completion of their project.

Artists-in-Residence are requested to leave a piece of art in the community, if possible.

Exhibition Opportunity

Residents will have the opportunity to exhibit their work in the Vernon Community Arts Centre’s Lobby Gallery, with technical support from the VCAC. Curatorial support is provided by the Caetani Center, and the artist will contribute to and receive a small publication about their residency and exhibition.

Selection of Applicants

The program is open to both emerging and established artists. The ideal candidate should have a minimum of post-secondary training completed or in progress with a major in ceramics, be self-directed and able to work independently. Preference is given to candidates who have demonstrated artistic excellence as well as interest in experimentation and innovative techniques.

The successful CeramAIR Resident has a genuine commitment to working with clay, a willingness to work with the local community, and a desire to grow in the development of their own work. They bring a high level of professionalism and competency to the studio that enriches the quality of our programs and facility.

A selection committee composed of arts professionals will review and select candidates for the program. Selection is based on the body of work presented, cv and project proposal.
