From January 14-March 2, 2015, Annmarie’s spectacular Main Gallery will be transformed into temporary artist studios, providing a serene retreat and experimental space for artists to develop new works, display and sell their work, network with other artists, and share their creative process with visitors.
Annmarie Sculpture Garden & Arts Center seeks artists working in any media to submit proposals to set up a working studio space in the Main Gallery for 1-2 week periods. These studios will be set up much like a “booth,” utilizing the artist’s own supplies and equipment. Artists are expected to be present in their studio booth during the majority of their scheduled 1-2 week period (which must include at least one weekend). Artists are encouraged to sell artwork in their booths. This call is open to all media. In addition, artists are asked to create an activity for visitors, as simple or as complex as you wish, that will allow visitors to experiment with your materials and creative process. The size and complexity of the activity/project is up to you. Artists may choose to have an on-going activity throughout the duration of their stay, or set specific times that the activity will operate. Through this program, artists are afforded an opportunity to work in free studio space in a beautiful setting. This is a perfect occasion for a serene retreat to immerse yourself in your artwork and to network with other artists. Overnight accommodations for out-of-town artists are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
