Artist Residency Program

In 1998 Mudflat began offering a one-year residency position to clay artists. This highly competitive program provides a private studio space at no cost with access to Mudflat’s facility, and opportunities for the resident to teach and sell their work.

See below for 2015-16 residency information; applications will be due April 16, 2015.

Mudflat’s Artist-in-Residence for 2014-15 is Mike Roche.
Mike will be presenting slides of his current work and talk about his plans for his 1-year residency at Mudflat on Friday September 18, 7-9 PM. Join us to welcome Mike to Mudflat.

Residency dates:

September 1 - August 31

Residency includes:

  • Private 90 sq. foot studio space
  • 24 hour access
  • A monthly stipend of $50, to be applied to clay materials and firing costs.
  • Opportunities to teach in our educational programs and for retail sales at our Open Studio events and at Mudflat Gallery
  • Solo exhibition and reception at Mudflat in August to showcase work created during the residency year

Residency requirements:

  • Artists are expected to spend a minimum of 20 hours per week in their studio
  • Artists are required to work 5 hours per week for Mudflat, assisting with technical jobs
  • 2 public presentations during the residency. The first, in September, is a slide show of the artist's work.
