RESIDENCIES

Individual two or three week artist residencies are available throughout the year, scheduled around artist project times. 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, but applicants are allowed to apply more than once.

Please submit the following materials via email or post to sue@oehmegraphics.com or Susan Oehme, Oehme Graphics, 2655 Copper Ridge Circle, Unit 1, Steamboat Springs, CO 80487

– Cover letter (include first, second and third choice month availability)
– Resume/ CV
– Essay of proposed project, be specific and include needed materials list, along with 20 jpegs of related work (labeled with artist name, title, size, medium, date, price)
– 3 letters of recommendation from gallerists, artists, or other art professionals; any relevant press or writings.
– $50 non-refundable administrative application fee

Deadlines: December 31 for residencies during the months of April – September; June 30 for residencies during the months of October – March

Awarded artist residents will be allocated two or three weeks at the studio, including some materials (except plates) as well as housing in the upstairs apartment and meals. Residents will be able to use the press for four hours during normal working hours (9 – 5, M – F) and at will for the remainder of each day. In addition they will receive one hour of collaborative planning time with the master printer each working day, and will have the opportunity to utilize the staff for a small hourly fee. At the end of the residency, Oehme Graphics will choose up to one half of the finished pieces to be placed in the collection and made available for sale. Oehme Graphics will host an informal one night exhibition of selected unframed works from the residency, with an opening reception and artist talk.

Please note that all application materials will be kept in the Oehme Graphics Archives.
