Studios Inc provides a three-year residency to competitively selected mid-career artists intent on moving to the next level of success. Expansive private studio space provides room to expand the scale of works. A patron underwrites each artist’s studio. This builds mutually meaningful relationships between local artists and new or seasoned collectors. The Studios’ programs supports the relationships between artists and collectors which are essential for a thriving visual arts community. The Studios nurtures symbiosis at a micro level with a focus on a selected group of artists and the patrons who support them. Combined, Studios Inc is a vital part of the unprecedented visual arts community here in Kansas City.
A selection panel consisting of a variety of individuals from the Kansas City area is assembled and convenes; it is this selection panel that determines which applicants will be awarded studio spaces in 2016. Applications are currently being solicited at www.thestudiosinc.org ; materials must be received no later than October 15, 2015.
Residencies are open to all visual artists. The Studios Inc does not discriminate on the basis of age, ethnicity, gender, economic or social standing, political or religious beliefs, marital status, or sexual orientation.
