RE Visiting Guest Artist Full Fellowship

Deadline: June 30, 2019

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.

MACDOWELL COLONY fellowship

Deadline: April 15, 2019

The MacDowell Colony provides time, space, and an inspiring environment to artists of exceptional talent. A MacDowell Fellowship consists of exclusive use of a studio, accommodations, and three prepared meals a day for two weeks to two months. The MacDowell Colony believes that all talented artists should have the opportunity a MacDowell Fellowship provides.

There is no cost for a Fellowship; however, artists are responsible for materials and travel expenses. In order to open the residency experience to a wider, more diverse community of artists, MacDowell offers two financial assistance programs to those who have been awarded a Fellowship. Through the generosity of several foundations and individuals need-based stipends are available to artists who would not otherwise be able to afford the time away that a Fellowship requires. Additionally, travel reimbursement grants are available to defray the cost of domestic and international travel to and from New Hampshire.

MacDowell encourages applications from artists representing the widest possible range of perspectives and demographics. The sole criterion for acceptance is artistic excellence. MacDowell has ten artist studios, one of which is a printmaking studio. The printmaking studio includes an etching press and a lithography press, and allows for multiple forms of printmaking.

The application deadline for the fall 2019 residency period is April 15, 2019.
