Richmond, VA (Feb. 24, 2023) The Visual Arts Center of Richmond (VisArts) has announced the 2023 deadlines for its VisArts Annual Artist Residency Program.

The Annual Artist Residency is open to artists in all stages of their careers with a demonstrated creative practice and are either emerging in their field or exploring new ideas or media. VisArts welcomes all visual art and creative writing applicants especially applications from BIPOC artists and those that come from groups that have been historically underrepresented due to age, disability, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, or socioeconomic status. VisArts provides residents with a private studio space, a $5,000 honorarium, access to VisArts communal studios and other benefits intended to enhance their creative practice.

The application deadline for the 2023-24 residency program is April 3, 2023 at 8 p.m. All applications will be reviewed by a jury, and finalists will complete a short virtual interview prior to being offered the residency. All applications are accepted through the VisArts website and there is no fee to apply.

The three emerging visual artists and one writer will be invited to spend the year at VisArts (September 1-July 31) making new work which will be included in a group exhibition and reading at VisArts midway through the residency.  Artists and writers who are interested in the VisArts Artist Residency Program can learn more and apply on VisArts’ website.
