ArtsQuest's Banana Factory jury selected resident artist program offers low-cost working studios to area artists. ArtsQuest is seeking artists who are committed to their work, and to being a part of a community that believes in and promotes art. Interested individuals should submit an application including a statement of intent, current, artist resume and at least 10-20 images of work. If selected for interview, artists will be asked to provide a minimum of 5 pieces of original work for review. Artists selected for the resident artists' program are regularly reviewed to maintain the highest level of work and dedication to the art community.
Low cost, subsidized studios. Studios vary in size from 200- to 900-sq. ft., with 24/7 access for artists.
Resident artists may teach courses at the Banana Factory, including courses they design and develop themselves.
There are many opportunities to show work in the galleries and public spaces of the Banana Factory, including the Annual Artists' Show.
Resident artists have access to all of the creative facilities at the Banana Factory, including a dark room, hot glass shop, ceramics studio, digital photo lab and more.
