Join Running With Scissors (RWS) staff in the studios to learn about the EMERGE Artist in Residence in Print or Clay program, ask questions about how to apply, and tour the space. Info sessions will be held in person at the RWS studios located at 250 Anderson Street in Portland, ME on Wednesday, March 6, 2024 from 11AM – 12PM and Thursday, March 21 from 6-7PM. A virtual option will be made available to those who cannot attend in person.
The RWS EMERGE Artist in Residence program elevates and supports artists who are in the emerging phase of their creative careers in either printmaking or clay by providing 24/7 access to private studio space as well as the respective department’s tools, equipment, and community for five months. Recipients will also receive a small stipend for materials.
RWS will host one to two artists per session, or up to four artists per year, working in either print or clay. The program offers two sessions each year:
– Session 1 starts September 1, 2024 and concludes January 31, 2025.
– Session 2 starts March 1, 2025 and concludes July 31, 2025.
Applications open March 1, 2024 and close on April 30, 2024. Application decisions are made by a small panel of local professional artists with extensive knowledge in print or clay. Notifications will be made in late May 2024 and a public announcement will be made in early June 2024.
