Call For Entry: 2013 Artist in Residence, Rayko Photo Center

Our Residence Program was developed to continue our support and education of fine art photographers. Through the program, artists receive a $2250 facility credit at RayKo, good for rentals, services, and workshops. It is not a cash stipend for the purchase of supplies. The residence does not include a housing, transportation or food stipend.

The program begins at the start of each workshop semester, so artists can utilize every opportunity to refine their work through the workshops and staff mentoring. There is a five month timeframe to complete the body of work, and one month to prepare and install final work. Artists gain hands on experience in the entire process of creating work, from conceptualizing, printing, framing, and hanging. Work produced in the program, will culminate in a show in our side gallery. Up to three final prints of the gallery’s choice will be donated to RayKo’s print collection.

Artists will check in with the Gallery Director for review sessions. Staff mentoring is available to assist in the artistic development of residents and cultivate a more polished body of work.

Artists living in the US working in the medium of photography, traditional, digital, or both. Individuals and groups are welcome to apply.
