Artist in Residence

In order to further support 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.

Applications for our 2014 Fall/Winter Residency are now closed.

Current Artist in Residence: Mattie Cannon


Past residents include:

Ryan Myers, a Pittsburgh potter.  After completing his residency, Ryan joined UP's ceramics co-op!

Erica Nickol, a Pittsburgh ceramic sculptor. To learn more about Erica and her work, visit her Facebook page or webpage.

Evan Church, an international watercolor and oil painter. Check out Evan's work at his webpage.
