Applications now open for the Border Art Residency's Fall Resident

The Border Art Residency is looking for a new resident artist for Fall 2022! If you or anyone you know is interested in being the next Border Art Resident, you can get more info and apply here!

The Border Art Residency offers a selected artist a period of retreat for creative work in a living/studio space in the heart of El Paso, Texas. Resident artists are provided with a fully furnished living/working space, a monthly stipend, and utilities paid. The next open residency period is from September 1 to December 1, 2022. Applications will be accepted until May 23, 2022. The selected artist will be notified by July 15, 2022.

Through a partnership with Philosophis Systems Institute (PSI), visiting artists will be able to share their art and stimulate dialogue with the El Paso community through a variety of programs and projects. The resident will be able to choose which program or programs they engage with as they connect and learn more about the El Paso borderland.

Selection of the artist is made by a panel of nationally recognized artists and arts professionals. Because the selection committee members are far-removed from each other, we request that the application be submitted digitally via email. Photos of artwork should be 300 DPI JPEGS and sent with the email application. 

We can’t wait for you to apply!

Please share with your network. We are so excited to welcome a new artist to our beloved borderland.

Our current Artist Resident, Freya Gabie, will be hosting an exhibition on April 14 at 5:30pm at the Border Art Residency studio at 801 N. Piedras. Save the date! More info to follow.
