03 Jul Artist in Residence | Westobou | Due July 14, 2023
Westobou aims to inspire creativity in artistic expression and community advancement. This inspired us to create a year-long Artist in Residence program for artists and creatives in the Augusta area.
The Westobou Artist in Residence program awards free studio space to 1 emerging or mid-career Augusta-based visual artist for 1 year (Jan-Dec 2024) at the Gertrude Herbert Institute of Art (GHIA). The program provides a stipend for research, tools and supplies to build a body of work for an exhibition at Westobou Gallery in the beginning of 2025. In collaboration with the GHIA, the artist-in-residence has the opportunity to teach a year-long workshop series to community members. Submissions are due on July 14, 2023 and the selected artist will be notified by August 2023.
