Printmaking Residency Programmes
Visiting Guest Artist Full Fellowship
15 February – 31 March, 2019
Application Deadline: June 30, 2018
Every year one RE member will be selected for a 6 week full fellowship. The RE Visiting Guest Artist will receive keys and full access to the studios 7 days a week, as well as housing accommodation in a private bedroom in Palazzo Dandolo on the Grand Canal. An exhibition will be also granted.
The Guest Artists are responsible for their meals and for travel and local transportation costs. The Visiting Guest Artist is expected to attend concurrently running courses and workshops at the Scuola on a biweekly basis. The artist’s role in the classroom is to act as a mentor, providing further knowledge, input, and guidance to participating students. This enables the Guest Artist to become further integrated into the fabric of the Scuola’s community, while fostering dialogue in a dynamic studio setting among artists both local and international. The position allows for both the freedom and time to create new work in the studio, culminating in a solo exhibition in the SG Gallery.
In addition to the Full Fellowship, the RE artist selected for the Visiting Guest Artist Full Fellowship will receive a £250,00 grant from the Royal Society of Painter Printmakers.
