Applications for the summer 2018 #PPGArtists public studio residency are now open. Deadline is March 15, 2018. Apply via Submittable here.

A laboratory for the arts, the Power Plant Gallery promotes creative work, while engaging with audiences through the transformative power of the arts. Each summer we turn the gallery into a studio supporting artists in their creative experimentation. This opportunity is open to artists in all mediums, at all stages of their careers, including students.

We are accepting applications for two separate, six-week public studio residencies. Each residency has 24/7 access our 1500-square-foot space located at American Tobacco Campus in Durham, NC. Residencies are available to an individual artist or group. Each residency comes with a $750 stipend, paid at the end of the residency. 

Our invited jurors this year include Tamika Galanis, the inaugural post-MFA Fellow in the Documentary Arts at the Center for Documentary Studies, and printmaker Bill Fick, director of Supergraphic and Visiting Assistant Professor at Duke University in the Department of Art, Art History and Visual Studies. Galanis and Fick join Caitlin Margaret Kelly, Director of the Power Plant Gallery in selecting the 2018 #PPGArtists.
