Artist-in-Residence Program

We are seeking self-motivated artists searching for the time, space, and resources needed to explore ideas and create new work in a unique rural setting. 

Chosen applicants will be provided studio space, access to studio equipment, and 1 year Art Center supporter membership.

If you are interested in becoming a future LAC Artist in Residence, please review the following information:

  • Residency time period is 3 months. 
  • On a weekly basis, the resident is expected to assist with Saturday hours, class and office work, gallery operations, installing exhibitions, maintaining of gallery space and anything in between! 8 volunteer hours are required in exchange for studio space, access to equipment and assistance with securing housing.
  • Studio workspace will be provided in  
  • Room and board are the responsibility of the artist. However, the LAC will assist to secure low cost housing. 
  • To encourage discipline in the production of art, the LAC requests a donation of one piece of artwork of your choosing created during your time as the resident. This artwork will become a future auction item in a LAC fundraiser.
  • The artist must be present and actively working in their discipline. Those not able to dedicate studio time should not apply.
  • Lander is a rural and remote community. Artists must be willing to take on certain challenges if this environment is unfamiliar to them.
