Each year the Galveston Artist Residency (Galveston, Texas) awards three artist-in-residence fellowships. For ten months, from October through July, artists in residence will receive a studio, an apartment, a monthly stipend of $1,100 per month, and a $500 travel stipend to be granted upon arrival and departure. Residents take part in a group exhibition near the end of their stay and have various studio visits throughout their time. While GAR facilitates this exhibition and studio visits, the ten months of unencumbered studio time is the primary focus of the GAR residency program, a gift of time for artists to sink in and dive deep into their work.
If you are an international artist currently living/working/studying in the U.S. with a valid visa you are eligible to apply. However it is the responsibility of the artist to extend your visa status should you be accepted. We regret that we do not currently have the ability to assist in visa related issues at this time.
