Now accepting applications for the 2013-2014 Residency.
The Genesee Pottery is looking for two committed, community-minded clay artists to be a part of our dynamic studio. Residents responsibilities include glaze mixing, clay reclaim, studio maintenance, help with load in/load out and sales in the Firehouse Gallery, and teaching classes. The Residents are expected to contribute bowls to the Pottery's annual Great Bowls of Fire Chili Fundraiser, and to produce a cohesive body of work for a two-person show in the Firehouse Gallery. While BFA or MFA candidates are preferred, applicants are juried by a staff panel and emphisis is put on the portfolio's quality of work and the candidates expressed desire to be a part of a community studio. There is no bias or preference for functional work over sculptural or vice-versa.
Residents are given materials at cost, and free firing, as well as studio space and 24/7 access. The Residents agree to a combined 15 hours of studio/gallery/teaching per week. The residency begins September, 2012 and runs through August, 2013
