Rayko Photo Center
Call for Entries: RayKo’s 2014 Artist-in-Residence

Deadline: Friday, November 22, 2013
Fee: $20

“Rayko Photo Center’s Artist-in-Residence Program was developed to continue our support and education of fine art photographers. Through the program, artists receive unlimited access to RayKo’s facilities. Artists-in-residence will receive significant discounts on other services and workshops at RayKo. There is a five month time frame to shoot, print, and complete the body of work, and one month to prepare work for the exhibition. Artists gain hands on experience in the entire process of creating work, from conceptualizing, printing, framing, and hanging. Work produced in the program will culminate in a show in our side gallery. Up to three final prints of the gallery director’s choice will be donated to RayKo’s print collection. Artists will have regular review sessions with the gallery director as the project progresses. Mentoring is available to assist in the artistic development of residents and cultivate a more polished body of work.
