Deadline March 30th: Philadelphia Photo Arts Center Artist Residency Program

The Philadelphia Photo Arts Center
Call for Entries: 2019-2020 Artist Residency Program
Deadline March 30, 2019 at midnight EDT
Application fee: $25

“The intention of the PPAC Artist Residency program is to assist talented, self-directed and committed artists in the creation of work by providing necessary financial support, access to high-end facilities and proper technical assistance and education. Our hope is to create a transformative experience that enriches the individual artist and the community of PPAC.

Accepted artists will receive a $3,000 honorarium, will have printer and scanner hourly rental fees waived and will receive a $1,500 credit to be applied to ink usage fees and paper in the Artist Lab. If necessary, a $1,000 stipend will be provided for travel and/or housing.

The length of each individual residency is restricted to a month, but the timing is flexible. Artists should propose a project that fits within the residency term of June 1, 2019, to May 1, 2020.

The month-long residency should be used to advance your artistic practice in a meaningful way. Artists may submit proposals that include the continuation or completion of work already in process, or the creation of new work.

Accepted artists will be required to work collaboratively with PPAC to design two public program events. These programs are flexible and open to your interpretation and interests. Please do not include proposals for these events in your application.

Because the Artist Residency program is intended to support working artists, students are not eligible to apply.

Required Application Materials
All artists must propose a project within the month-long residency term. A letter of intent should clearly address the goals and expected outcomes of the residency, give a specific time frame, along with a preferred month of participation and should outline which lab equipment will be used. A separate artist statement should discuss your most recent work and should clearly outline your process and personal interest in making the work.

  • $25 application fee (to offset costs in accepting and reviewing application materials)
  • Letter of intent
  • CV
  • One page artist statement
  • 15 – 20 jpegs of work related to the intended project, or recent work
  • Please submit your application here.

Application materials will be reviewed by PPAC’s Artist Residency Committee. PPAC is unable to respond to inquires about the status of a submission, nor is the Artist Residency Committee able to offer feedback or reasoning for rejected submissions.

Michener Art Museum
Artist lecture: Kate Breakey
Tuesday, April 14, 2015, 1:00-2:00 pm

“A former professor of photography at the University of Texas at Austin, native Australian Kate Breakey now lives and works in Tucson, Arizona. She first received international recognition for her large-scale, hand-colored photographs then adds layers of transparent oil paint and pencil.

Small Deaths, on view at the Michener Art Museum from March 14 – July 12, 2015 in the Fred Beans Gallery, features thirty extraordinary, hand-colored, oversized images of the birds, flowers, and insects that photographer Kate Breakey has memorialized through her work. The brilliance of her palette draws viewers to a close-up and unexpected confrontation with mortality. The images are life-size silver gelatin contact prints toned by hand with a golden wash. Breakey’s work has appeared in over 30 one-woman exhibitions and numerous group exhibitions in the U.S. and abroad. She received the Photographer of the Year Award in 2004 from the Houston Center for Photography.

Online registration is closed. Please call 215-340-9800 for ticket availability.
