Hamilton Artists Inc. Cotton Factory Residency Program

May – July, 2016

Continuing Hamilton Artists Inc.’s exciting partnership with the Cotton Factory at 270 Sherman, we are pleased to announce the call for the second in a series of residencies open to our membership in this space. In 2016, the Cotton Factory has generously donated a studio space for the Inc. to facilitate an artist in residence program through our membership. This residency program provides a valuable opportunity for artists from a wide range of disciplines and career levels to build their practice and engage with a thriving hub of artistic activity.The Inc. is seeking applications for 1 artist in residence from May through July, 2016. The residency will be self directed, but the successful applicant will be expected to use the space 2-3 days a week, perform an artist talk or workshop and culminate the experience with an open studio type exhibition open to the public. The selected applicant will be sharing the studio space with this year’s Ignition award winners, Abedar Kamgari, Lydia Santia and DB Kellam as well as short term visiting artists exhibiting at Hamilton Artists Inc.
