AIR Program Information

Meet our Artist in Residence

Artist In Residence (AIR) Program at Arlene's is designed for fine artists working across discipline and media. Through integration of all our programs we aim to provide well rounded residency experience. The goal of AIR Program at Arlene's is to foster individual artists while further enriching our creative community through exposure to their process and work. 

Artists will create a cohesive body of work to be exhibited in R Gallery at Arlene’s and will be provided a basic studio space area. They will teach in our Atelier at Arlene’s program and be able to participate in any classes or workshops at Arlene’s. Accepted AIR will participate in that  year's Arlene’s Art Fair. Also, they will be expected to give an Artist Talk at Arlene’s regarding the body of work they are working on during their residency.
