The Interdisciplinary Residency Program was a six month residency with complete FREE access to all our facilities including flat file storage, bench (wood/metalshop), and locker space to store your creative tools. Visit our Institute of Fabrefaction page to see a list of all our equipment. Our goal is to give artists the opportunity to expand his/her art practice by providing access to a variety of equipment in an inspiring and creative environment. Artists are encouraged to apply with a specific project. We also have housing available for an additional cost at The Hampton Art Manor just a few blocks away.  Check the website for availability. Residencies are for 6 months and application deadlines are March 1st or September 1st, depending on which session is current. Two artists will be chosen for each session. Recipients of the residency will have full access to the facilities for six months with no additional fees and 24 hour access. Past residents are listed on our Artist Page.



Spring/Summer Residency:   April 1st-October 1st
(deadline to apply is March 1st)


Fall/Winter Residency:   October 1st-April 1st

The online application includes: an artist’s statement, bio, proposed project, voice message/proposal (optional-up to 3 minutes), and links to website/images. Artists are expected to work a minimum of 8 hours a week on his/her projects at The Compound Gallery. Artists must have some proficiency with equipment used, although some training is provided to encourage interdisciplinary practice.  Applications will be reviewed and artists will be notified of acceptance (or otherwise) via email by March 15th or September 15th, depending on which session is active.

Artists in Residence will also have the opportunity to participate in a special exhibition in our Artists Gallery at the end of his/her residency, sell work in our Special Collections & Print Lounge,  and work with other projects at The Compound Gallery.
