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.”
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.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
