OPEN STUDIO RESIDENCY
Struts Gallery hosts a series of five-week artist residencies that offer a professional artist fee, per diem, travel expenses, accommodation, studio space within the gallery, and access to our media art equipment. Artists are offered the freedom to continue their practice, develop a new project or site-specific work and are encouraged to creatively engage with the community through talks, workshops, or other artist-initiated events. The Open Studio program aims to develop artists’ practices by supporting experimentation without the pressure to present a resolved body of work. Residencies are selected through an open call for proposals which are adjudicated by a committee of Struts Gallery members.
Artists-in-Residence are offered the Struts' main gallery 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.
Artists-in-Residence stay in the Struts Gallery apartment, located on the second floor above the gallery. There are two flights of stairs that lead to the second floor. This private apartment is fully furnished and includes linens and towels. Please note: There are no washrooms in the building that are wheelchair accessible, have safety grab bars or supports at this time. The nearest accessible washroom is at The Painted Pony about 500m away on Bridge Street. Our second floor is not wheelchair accessible. We sincerely apologize for these barriers.
