Ceramic Artist in Residence

Truro Center for the Arts at Castle Hill is currently offering a 3 month Ceramic Artist in Residence Program during the winter of 2018 that is designed to provide time and facilities to artists looking for a concentrated creative experience. Our goal is to give driven and self-directed artists the opportunity to enhance their personal, intellectual and creative growth by expanding their body of work or creating a specific project. Free from the distractions of every day pressures, residents will be given time and space to concentrate on their work in the beautiful setting of Cape Cod and will be awarded a shared exhibition in the Castle Hill gallery upon completion of their stay.

The residency runs from January 2 to March 31, 2018 and includes housing and studio space for $500/month. A total of two residents will be selected based on a review of application materials. Each resident will have personal workspace in a shared studio and open access to the communal ceramics studio and kilns. Materials and firing fees are payable through Castle Hill at a discounted rate. Residents will share a furnished 2 bedroom apartment equipped with a kitchen, bathroom, living room, laundry and internet access. It is highly recommended to have a car, as there is limited public transportation and no grocery store within walking distance.

The ceramics facility at Castle Hill offers all standard studio equipment including wheels and a slab roller, as well as many kilns in excellent condition including: several programmable electric kilns, a Bailey gas kiln, raku, salt, and a train style wood kiln.  The studio barn is nestled in the gentle hills of Truro Massachusetts, just steps from the ocean. The Cape is rich with both nature and arts activity and abounds with beaches, nature trails and small-town charm.

If you have any further questions, please contact the Ceramics Studio Manager, Brian Taylor at 508-349-7511 or brian@castlehill.org,  there is a $25 application fee.
