For Immediate Release: AVA a-i-r
STUDIO SPACE FOR LOCAL ARTISTS
Astoria Visual Arts Artists-in-Residence Program (“AVA a-i-r”) seeks applications from local artists interested in the upcoming artist's residency (July 1-September 30, 2015). Residency finalists (currently limited to locally based artists) are chosen on the basis of artistic merit by an independent panel of established working artists and arts patrons. The selected artist is provided with a small studio in the Astoria Downtown Historic District free of charge for a three-month residency period. AVA a-i-r is designed to encourage the creative, intellectual and professional growth of emerging artists.
