OCEAN CITY CENTER FOR THE ARTS OFFERS FREE ARTIST-IN-RESIDENCY WITH PRIVATE STUDIO DURING MAY

If you are in Ocean City this week, you may notice a couple of changes as you drive down Coastal Highway. The speed limit, normally 40 mph through North Ocean City, has been reduced to 30 mph, and Downtown, the speed limit has also been reduced. This is due to the expected, unauthorized H2Oi Pop-Up Rally.  It is reasonable to expect heavier than usual traffic, noise and strict enforcement of vehicle laws during the week and weekend.

OCEAN CITY, MD — March 12, 2021 – The Art League of Ocean City is offering a new and free Artist-in-Residency program for the month of May at the Ocean City Center for the Arts, and artists are encouraged to apply. Deadline for applications is April 2, 2021.

The selected artist-in-residence for May will occupy the private, 140-sq. ft., 2nd floor Studio E space at the Arts Center that includes two interior glass doors, south-facing windows, a sink, gallery lighting, gallery hanging system, WiFi, plus enough floor space to spread out and work.

“This is a great opportunity for any artist who is looking to spread their wings,” Rina Thaler, executive director of the Art League, said. “The artist-in-residence will personally interact with our Arts Center visitors, share their ideas and processes, hear reactions about their work, be inspired themselves – and hopefully sell some art! Plus Studio E is an inspiring space to work in.”

Inside the main two-story gallery, where new art from local and international artists is on display every month.

Artists working in all media may apply: painting, drawing, fiber, mixed media, video, clay, performing arts, photography – whatever they consider their art. The Art League will promote the artist’s Studio E residency in-person and online, through press releases and social media posts. If accepted, the artist may access the studio anytime during normal business hours: Monday-Friday 9 a.m.-4 p.m.; Saturday-Sunday 11 a.m.-4 p.m. There is no fee to apply and no fee for the residency. The Art League will retain a 35% commission on all sales.

From painting to pottery, the Art League offers classes for artists of every skill level.

The Art League adheres to a nondiscrimination policy, in both principle and practice, and will not discriminate against applicants on the basis of race, creed, color, religion, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, or physical challenge.

An application form is available on-line at www.ArtLeagueofOceanCity.org/call-for-entries/. Completed applications – along with sample images of the artist’s work and an artist’s statement – and any questions should be directed to Gallery Manager Katie Brown at 410-524-9433 or katie@artleagueofoceancity.org. Deadline for applications is April 2, 2021.

The Art League of Ocean City is a non-profit organization dedicated to bringing the visual arts to the community through education, exhibits, scholarship, programs and community art projects. Financial support comes through individuals and corporate sponsors, The Maryland State Arts Council, the Worcester County Arts Council, and the Community Foundation of the Eastern Shore.
