About the Lawndale Artist Studio Program
The Lawndale Artist Studio Program is part of Lawndale’s ongoing commitment to support the creation of contemporary art by Gulf Coast area artists. With an emphasis on emerging practices, the program provides three artists with studio space on the third floor of Lawndale Art Center at 4912 Main Street in the heart of Houston’s Museum District.
The Lawndale Artist Studio Program is a nine month residency (September-May). Artists have full access to their studios 24 hours a day, seven days a week; access to visiting artists, writers and curators; and receive a $500 monthly stipend for the duration of the program together with an initial $1500 materials allowance. During the residency, participating artists present workshops or presentations to the general public and the local arts community to share their practice or explore a related topic.
Works produced during the program are exhibited at Lawndale Art Center in May each year. Lawndale Art Center works with resident artists to create additional exhibition opportunities during the residency.
Applications for the 2016-2017 Lawndale Artist Studio Program will be available in the spring of 2016. Please joing our mailing list for information on this and other artist opportunities.
