The Hamilton Artists Inc. Cotton Factory Residency Program is a 3-month rotating artist residency for Inc. members as well as recipients of Hamilton Artists Inc.’s Award for Distinction from the McMaster Studio Art Program, who are gifted the space for one year following graduation. The Hamilton Artists Inc. Cotton Factory Residency Program provides a valuable opportunity for artists from a wide range of disciplines and career levels to build their practice. Participating artists are encouraged to use their time to experiment, develop new ideas and learn new skills in addition to forming meaningful ties with their fellow artists in residence, Cotton Factory tenants, and Inc. members. Hamilton Artists Inc. would like to thank the Cotton Factory for its demonstrated, ongoing commitment to fostering emerging artist practices as well as their continued contribution to Hamilton’s flourishing contemporary art community.
The studio is located on the second floor of the Storehouse Building at the Cotton Factory (270 Sherman Ave. N.) in room 236.
