Struts & Faucet hosts a series of five-week artist residencies in the gallery each year. Artists in residence can continue their practice or develop a project or site-specific work and are encouraged to creatively engage with the community through screenings, talks, workshops, projects, or events.

Struts & Faucet offers an artist fee and per diem, covers the cost of travel and any materials associated with workshops or other public events, and provides accommodation for the artist in the Struts & Faucet apartment.

Residencies are selected by a committee of Struts & Faucet members after an open call for proposals.

Studio + Facilities:

Artists in residence are offered the Struts & Faucet’s main gallery space to use as a studio space. Artists have access to digital media suites and equipment, Super 8 and 16mm film facilities, and other flexible studio areas within the building. Offsite locations can be considered on a project-by-project basis.

Apartment:

Artists in residence stay in the Struts & Faucet apartment, located above the gallery. This private apartment is fully furnished and includes linens and towels.
