Call for Submissions: MAG Summer Artist Residency 2020

Call for Submissions: MAG Summer Artist Residency 2020

The Mitchell Art Gallery invites Canadian and international artists to apply for the second year of the MAG Summer Residency Program. We encourage applicants with interdisciplinary, non-traditional creative practices to apply.

This residency works to support an artist with space and time to initiate or further a body of work, and bridge their practice with a local community, whether a project connects to a relevant local issue or history, or has participatory or socially-engaged elements. The residency is intended for artists interested in the reciprocal learning opportunity from encountering a community or public, with the MAG as the home base for those encounters.

Application deadline: March 1, 2020


The John and Maggie Mitchell Art Gallery is located within MacEwan University in Edmonton, Alberta. We are a public gallery committed to featuring diverse artistic and curatorial perspectives, and supporting critical discourses in contemporary art. We are currently accepting submissions for our 2020 Summer Residency Program that will provide individual artists/artist collectives with the space and time to initiate or further a body of work that connects and engages with local communities. Previous artists in residence at the MAG have included Halie Finney (Edmonton), Florence Yee (Toronto), and Olivia Chow (Hong Kong).

Those interested in learning more and/or applying can do so via the MAG website: www.macewan.ca/MitchellArtGallery

Any questions can be sent to Carolyn Jervis or Jamelie Bachaalani at mitchellartgallery@macewan.ca

NOW OPEN – Applications for Artist in Residence (AiR) Program on Salt Spring Island, BC

Salt Spring National Art Prize

NOW OPEN – APPLICATIONS FOR

The Artist in Residence (AiR) Program

on Salt Spring Island, British Columbia

The Salt Spring Arts Council (SSAC) Artist in Residence (AiR) Program, now in its fifth year, provides an opportunity for artists to work in the vibrant arts environment of Salt Spring Island. The program is open to all professionals working in the arts, in any genre or medium, at any stage of their careers. The intent of the program continues to be the provision of time and space for creativity and productivity for the chosen visiting artists and to introduce them to Salt Spring Island and its arts community. We welcome both National and International applicants to the program.

All submissions are juried with residencies awarded based on artistic merit, available facilities, potential links to the Salt Spring community and associated collaborative opportunities.

Our residents this year are Joyce Majiski from Whitehorse, working on a multi-media installation “Song of the Whale,” painter Claudia Wilholt from Hanover, Germany, working with egg tempera on canvas, and writer Julie Burtinshaw working on her next book: Petit Treason: One Women’s Journey to the Gallows.

As in previous years, as well as working on their own projects, the artists will share their expertise and enthusiasm through presentations, workshops, demonstrations and exhibits, enriching our island with their work and ideas, interacting with Salt Spring artists and enjoying our unique island lifestyle. For information about these artists and events go to; ssartscouncil.com/artist-in-residence/residencies/

The AiR program invites artists to engage with the creative cultural community of Salt Spring Island. Within the spirit of this framework, collaborative proposals by members of the Salt Spring arts community which involve off-island artists are actively encouraged.

In 2021 the annual SSAC presentation Easter Art Show will centre on an exploration of colour, artists who feel their work, explorations, and timing might fit into this scenario should make note of this on their application.

Applications for the AiR program can be submitted on or before April 15th. 2020 for tenure between January 2021 and April 2021. Application information is available at ssartscouncil.com/artist-in-residence/
