Artist in Residence
In order to further support ceramic artists, Union Project created our Artist in Residence program. This residency provides the opportunity for an emerging artist to focus on their artwork and build their body of work, while taking part in a thriving ceramics community and serving the greater Pittsburgh community through teaching community arts programs and classes.
Our next residency is a six-month residency taking place summer/fall 2013. The application deadline is Thursday, January 31, 2013. All materials and completed application must be postmarked by the deadline.
Residency benefits include:
- Designated work space within community studio
- 24-hour access to Union Project’s community studio, tools, and equipment
- Use of all facilities including slab roller, clay mixer, extruder, pug mill, studio glazes, two electric kilns, gas kiln, raku kiln, and an offsite wood kiln
- Unlimited firings
- Materials budget of $50/month (a total of $300 for the six month period) for any clay and/or chemicals
Resident artist will also have access to administrative and marketing support to achieve artistic and professional goals, including securing exhibition opportunities. Resident artist will have sales opportunities including participation in the Highland Park Pottery Tour and the Three Rivers Arts Festival. Depending on grants and community partnerships, there may be paid teaching opportunities.
Resident artist will complete 30 service hours per month as delegated by the Ceramics Program Manager. In order to meet outreach goals specified in our strategic plan, a large portion of the monthly service hours will include teaching ceramics programming, both on-site and off-site. These service hours will also include studio maintenance, glaze/clay mixing, and kiln firing.
See the Artist Residency Application for full details. Minorities and women are strongly encouraged to apply.
