If we can not have a direct impact on your artistic journey, we would certainly love to at least have a positive indirect impact on it!  Just like the jobs we here about by email or through word of mouth, we want to share that information with the widest audience possible so as to increase the chances that our artists and friends will find the help they need to see their artistic dreams through to fruition.  If you have any similar type opportunities, please do not hesitate to reach out to us so that we may post them here as well.

DISCLAIMER: These residency and grant opportunities are not controlled by the Burnsville Visual Arts Society positions, we would just like to spread the word about the opportunities we have heard of from various sources.

The deadline to apply for the Emerging Artist Residencies is Friday, April 17, 2020, by 5 pm.

The Emerging Artist Residency program encompasses two unique Fellowships, designed to provide up to three ceramic artists with an opportunity to be in residence for one year at Northern Clay Center, where they can develop their own work, as well as exchange ideas and knowledge with other ceramic artists.

This award is available to current undergraduate or graduate students, recent graduates (within one year), or those who have completed a university-equivalent training in ceramics (including apprenticeships) within the year prior to the application deadline.
