Astoria Visual Arts (AVA) and Recology Western Oregon (RWO) are pleased to announce the third round of the Coastal Oregon Artist Residency, which aims to support the creation of art from recycled, repurposed, and discarded materials recovered from the Recology Astoria Recycling Depot and Transfer Station. The Residency provides selected artists with access to discarded materials, a stipend of $400 per month, and a large studio space at Recology Western Oregon’s Warrenton-based shop.
By supporting artists who work with recycled materials, AVA and RWO hope to encourage people to conserve natural resources and promote new ways of thinking about art and the environment. Two three-month residencies will commence on Monday, July 2, 2018 and end on Monday, October 1, 2018.
During their residencies, artists will have Monday through Saturday (8am-4pm) scavenging privileges at the Astoria Transfer Station and Monday through Friday (8am-4pm) access to the Warrenton studio. It is expected that the artists will work on site on a regular basis (approximately 20 hours per week) in order to complete their proposed projects by the close of the residency. Mid-term reviews will take place to gauge progress toward completion of the artwork per the concepts set forth in each artist’achroposal. At the conclusion of the residencies, AVA and RWO will host a reception and public exhibition for the artists featuring artwork made during their residencies. When the residencies end, each artist will be asked to contribute one piece of artwork to the program’s permanent collection.
The Coastal Oregon Artists Residency is open to local, career-level artists living in Clatsop and Tillamook Counties in Oregon and Pacific and Wahkiakum Counties in Washington who are working in any style or medium. Students currently enrolled at any university, college, or other educational institution will not be considered. We do not accept applications from artists who reside a driving distance of more than one hour from the RWO Astoria Transfer Station.
