Artist-In-Residence Opportunity

Jeffrey Frisch working on his art at Huntington Beach Art Center

Here’s a great opportunity to be an Artist-In-Residence at the Huntington Beach Art Center in California. I highly recommend this venue because it has large working spaces, a helpful staff, and a curator, Darlene De Angelo, who loves artists and thinks like one as well. By that I mean she is able to conceptualize an artist’s project and give them the freedom to execute their ideas. All in all it is a great experience for any serious artist.

If you are a follower of my blog, you know that I created Economy Portraits as an Artist-In-Residence at HBAC in March/April of 2011. Economy Portraits was favorably reviewed and was awarded Best Art Show of 2011 by the OC Weekly. It is now a book and can be purchased through my website or on Amazon. I could have never made Economy Portraits without being Artist-In-Residence at HBAC.

Adult, professional artists working in creative disciplines, including visual, performance and interdisciplinary arts are eligible. The deadline for submissions is January 31st, 2012. Full details and submission guidelines and form are available by clicking here. Good luck.
