Emerging Artist Residency
Three emerging artists from Windsor-Essex are set to complete a 3-month residency at the Art Gallery of Windsor over the course of 2022. The Art Windsor-Essex Emerging Artist Residency is a paid opportunity for early-career artists in Windsor-Essex who want to learn, grow, develop, and show their art while engaging with the public in a series of community programs.
In addition to creating new works of art in the AWE Education Studio, the artist will create digital content and install an off-site window solo exhibition at the Dry Goods Gallery, at 1012 Drouillard Road, in Ford City.
This program is generously sponsored by the WindsorEssex Community Foundation.
2022 Emerging Artists are already selected. Applications for 2023 will open soon!
