Gallery 263 is currently accepting applications for the Summer 2013 Artist Residence Program.
Since 2010, twice a year Gallery 263 opens its 700 square-foot gallery space as an incubator for the creative production of 3-5 emerging artists. Participating artists benefit by having full access* to a versatile workspace with high ceilings, natural light, and community visibility.
Gallery 263’s Artist Residence Program is ideal for those whose creative practice embraces collaborative projects, community engagement, or are open to sharing space with other artists. Our first-floor storefront space allows for the artistic process to be on view for the neighborhood, investing the gallery’s local audience with a stake in the process, not just the product, of art making.
This is a work only residence, and preference will be given to emerging artist living in the Metro-Boston area. Artists coming from outside the region must secure local housing on their own.
Deadline to apply: July 1
Notification of selected residents: July 15
Residency length / dates: 5 weeks, August 12—September 15, 2013
Number of Residents: 3 to 5. This is a shared group residence. Residents share the studio for the entire period.
Studio Fee: $275 per resident. This fee will be assessed to each artist at the beginning of the residency which contributes to rent and utilities for the residence period. This fee is comparable to the cost of a studio sublet in the area. Partial scholarships may be available.
Location: 263 Pearl Street, Cambridge, MA
