2024-2025 Artist in Residence Application
Applications open July 16-Aug 25, 2024

Each year, artists are invited to apply to our “TEST SITE” Artist-in-Residency Program. Selected by a guest juror, two artists are awarded 24-hour access to personal studio space at the Bountiful Davis Art Center during the 2024-25 school year to encourage experimentation while working towards a solo exhibitions in our Annex Gallery. 
During their residency, our artists gain invaluable insight into working with an art gallery while receiving support to advance their careers. Throughout the year, our Exhibitions Director, Bren Larsen, will arrange at least two studio visits to discuss their artwork and plan for the spring exhibition. Additionally, BDAC will coordinate a studio visit with another artist or curator relevant to each artist's practice. These interactions not only help artists experiment with new techniques but also prepare them for their future career paths by expanding their professional network and enhancing their artistic development and presentation to the general public.
During their residency, artists will be asked to periodically promote their work and engage with the public during opening receptions throughout the year by hosting open studio hours. Selected artists also have the option to lead workshops, gallery talks, or panel discussions. Based on their preferences and comfort levels, artists will work with Bren Larsen to determine the structure and schedule of these activities.
