The Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts invites the public to our quarterly “Open Studios,” an ideal opportunity to meet current Artists-in-Residence, visit their studios and learn about their creative processes first hand. As always, this event is free and open to the public.
The Bemis Center is widely regarded as a leader and innovator in the international field of artist communities. Our Residency Program hosts contemporary artists from around the world for three-month residencies and provides live/work studios, technical support and monthly stipends so that artists can focus solely on their practices in complete freedom. Artists are selected through a competitive jury process. Each year, over 1,200 artists apply for only 36 annual fellowships.
