ASTORIA — Astoria Visual Arts seeks applications from local artists interested in working in a rent-free studio Jan. 1 through April 30.
The deadline for applications is midnight Wednesday, Dec. 19. Notification of selection takes place Saturday, Dec. 22.
Successful candidates will be provided with studio space in the Astoria Downtown Historic District free of charge for a four-month residency, beginning Jan. 1.
The AVA a-i-r Program is designed to encourage the creative, intellectual and professional growth of local artists. Residency finalists are chosen on the basis of merit by an independent selection panel of working artists and arts patrons. Those who have applied in the past are encouraged to reapply with an updated portfolio and statement reflecting updates and changes.
