September

Mon-Sun, September 1-August 23, 2015, | ARTIST IN RESIDENCE PROGRAM Kent Harrison Arts Council is a not-for-profit organization, nurturing and supporting local arts and culture in the region for over 40 years. The arts council operates the Ranger Station Art Gallery in Harrison Hot Springs, BC and is supported by the BC Arts Council.

The annual residency provides an unfurnished two-bedroom suite with adjoining studio space on the second floor of the Ranger Station Art Gallery. In exchange for this space the Artist in Residence will be expected to devote an average of ten hours per week to the operation of the Arts Council and the Ranger Station Art Gallery. The majority of this time will be spent working in the gallery on Saturdays, Sundays and holiday Mondays from 1-5pm. The Artist in Residence will also present an annual art exhibit of their work in June and organize two public outreach programs or workshops. Artist in residence is responsible for monthly utility costs of residence and studio. Please refer to the artist in residence job description for specific duties and responsibilities at
www.kentharrisonartscouncil.com

This residency is ideally suited to visual artists and writers, although all artists are encouraged to contact us about their interests. If an inspirational natural setting, public art gallery work experience and self-directed, independent studio practice is of interest to you.

California, through several states including Texas and onward to the east in Jacksonville,
Florida. The basic concept of the connectivity of land, road, transportation and travel are,
indelibly, American themes. Although open to all 2–D art forms in abstract, non-representational
or realist imagery, submissions should reflect this landscape/land–based motif.

Wed-Sat, November 5-December 13, 2014, Tues-Sat, 12pm - 5pm | ARTIST-IN-RESIDENCE ANNE STEVES: SPINE Spine is an artist book project by Anne Steves that combines her drawing and thread-based studio practice with an interest in the act of string figure making. Steves has been researching the history of string figures and the attempts by anthropologists to document these momentary forms and their use in discussions of contemporary scientific and philosophical thought. During her production residency, she will use this information as inspiration to explore her own relationship and understanding of string figures as she creates an artist book in the Open Space environment.
