Residencies at the Houston Center for Contemporary Craft

Call for Artists Now Open!
Deadline to Apply:  March 1, 2018
Apply here.

Program Info & Requirements

Media accepted: Wood, Glass, Metal, Fiber, Clay, and Mixed Media

Applicants must be able to fulfill a program requirement of working in their studios for two days per week during HCCC public hours. All resident artists are required to open their studios to public interaction on Saturdays and one other day of the week (TBD), as well as during exhibition openings and specific educational programs on the evenings and weekends. Applicants should consider the public-facing nature of the residencies and the fact that a major goal of the program is to provide visitors with an opportunity to explore contemporary craft through engaging with working artists.

Benefits of the residency include 24/7 access to studio space, cultural and professional development opportunities, a monthly stipend that includes a small housing/materials allowance, and the opportunity to give an artist talk.

Public hours at HCCC are Wednesday through Saturday, 10:00 AM – 5:00 PM, and Sunday, Noon – 5:00 PM.

Juried selection is based on quality of creative work, ability to interact with the public, career direction, and program diversity.  Accepted artists will be notified via e-mail in April.
