CALL FOR ENTRY: Artist in Residence Program
Summer 2018
Juried by: The Image Flow Staff

The Image Flow Artist in Residence Program

The Image Flow invites applications for a 2-3 month Artist Residency program to support a visual artist working within photography and/or image-based media. This is a work-only residency; artists not local to the area are welcome to apply but will need to secure housing arrangements independently. The time frame for the residency is flexible, ideally taking place between the months of June and September 2018.

The selected resident photographer will gain access to our photo studio and lighting, a dedicated workspace with Epson 7880 and 3880 printers, traditional and alternative darkrooms, and a limited supply of inkjet papers for printing purposes. Participants in the residency program are expected to use their time to pursue their own personal projects, which may include photographing, printing, or other work inherent to their specific endeavors.

At the close of the residency, participants will donate a selection of work to The Image Flow's Artist in Residence Collection, the details of which are negotiable upon acceptance. The resident photographer may also choose to present a lecture on their work to the community, though this will be voluntary. There will also be the possibility for the chosen resident photographer to mount an exhibition of work created during the course of the residency. 

Note: Residents will need to provide their own primary camera(s), as well as a personal laptop or computer for use with the Epson printers. When using the darkroom facilities, residents must provide their own chemicals/papers.
