Artist Residency in the U.S.

Inscape Arts

Seattle, Washington
Mission Inscape creates a forum for possibilities; a collaboration with artists and artisans, creative individuals and organizations, the neighborhood and the city, to build a mutually supportive alliance that engages the Greater Seattle community in the experience of art and the celebration of culture. Inscape reinvigorates the building and the neighborhood, bringing new life to the district with a renewed spirit created by the investment of the entire community in culture, arts, preservation and engagement.

Overview One studio space at Inscape is dedicated most months of the year to an artist residency program. The residency will culminate in an exhibition in the residency/gallery space. Artists are required to work onsite for a minimum of 10 hours a week for the duration of the residency period. Artists are responsible for their own materials. Artists are expected to exhibit artwork at the end of their residency period, which can include finished work or work in progress. Artists must be over the age of 18 and not currently enrolled in a degree program.
