The Studio’s Artist-in-Residence program brings artists from around the world to Corning. The artists spend a month at The Studio, exploring new directions in glass art, or expanding on their current bodies of work, while using the immense resources of the world’s leading glass museum. At the end of the residency, each artist gives a presentation about his or her work. This is a free event held in The Studio Lecture Room and open to the public.
Transportation, as well as room and board, will be arranged for those invited to participate in these month-long programs. All basic supplies will be provided, and the facility will be made available whenever classes are not in session. Residents will have access to the Rakow Research Library and the collection of The Corning Museum of Glass. Residents are expected to make their own work during a residency.
Residencies will be held in March, April, May, October, and November. One or two individuals will be selected for each month.
If you are interested in being considered, please submit your application including 10 digital images of your work, two letters of recommendation, a written proposal (including detailed information on your residency plans; necessary supplies, equipment, and assistants), the best months for you to participate, and a resumé.
