Individual artist residencies are available throughout the year at Oehme Graphics, from 1-4 weeks in length. Residencies will be awarded by a jury appointed by the Director to applicants who successfully demonstrate a need for working space at the print studio and have a strong, consistent portfolio of primarily print-based work. The decisions of the jury will be final each year. If not accepted, applicants are allowed to reapply in subsequent years.
