Penland School of Craft is now accepting applications for three openings in the Penland Resident Artist Program. Applications for 2018 residency spaces are due by 11:59 PM EST on January 15, 2018. We will be selecting residents in all media including glass for residencies beginning September 21, 2018. We hope you will consider applying or sharing information about this unique program with friends and colleagues.
Penland’s residents are full-time artists who spend three years living and working in the Penland community. The program is designed for artists at a pivotal moment in their career who are eager to test ideas, push technical and conceptual boundaries, or explore entirely new directions.
Resident artists work independently and set their own goals, but they do so in an atmosphere of support, encouragement, and creative energy. Living at Penland gives them access to the many working artists who live nearby as well as the national and international Penland community.
