ArtHub is a new organization that provides visual and literary artists a chance to concentrate on their creative efforts by offering free space to live and work. Renovations are underway in a two-story building in downtown Kingman, AZ. Planned completion of the project is in December 2014. The residency program will begin in January 2015. Deadline November 15, 2014.
ArtHub offers space to four artists every four months. These four artists may work with visual art or literary art. To be considered for the residency program, please submit an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the following items attached:
Between 7 and 10 images of your visual art, or exerpts of your writing
Please label the images in this format: Title/Year/Medium/Size
Total writing excerpts may be between 1,000 and 2,000 words.
All images must represent art made in the past two years. All excerpts must have been written in the past three years.
Acceptance to the program is based largely on the merits of the artwork alone. With this ideal in mind, an artist who does not have an education in the arts should not be detracted from submitting their work.
