CALL TO ARTISTS: Vermont Artists Week at Vermont Studio Center in Johnson

Vermont Artists Week is open to all Vermont artists and writers and provides them with a week of uninterrupted studio time at reduced cost or no cost. Vermont Studio Center wants to give this opportunity to as many Vermont artists as possible!

VERMONT WEEK at the Vermont Studio Center was created in 1984 to support Vermont’s artists and writers with an intensive week of studio work and fellowship with other Vermont artists. The Vermont Studio Center is grateful to all those who’ve made Vermont Artists Week possible, and would like to extend special thanks to the Vermont Community Foundation’s Arts Endowment Fund, Peter and Bari Dreissigacker, and the Studio Center alumni.

ELIGIBILITY Applicants should be practicing visual artists and writers and must be legal residents of the State of Vermont. In order to serve as many Vermonters as possible, qualified artists and writers who have not previously attended Vermont Week will be given preference.

APPLICATION AND DEADLINES Applications for VAW must be received by January 31, 2011. Notification of acceptance will be sent within four weeks of the deadline.

VSC offers the Vermont Artists’ Week, including room, board, studio space and interaction with Visiting Artists and Writers, for $200. This fee, an expression of support for Vermont artists, represents a 75% reduction of the normal year-round VSC fees. The fee is due upon notification of acceptance. All VAW participants are asked to work six hours during the week to assist in the operations of VSC.
