Arts Barn Seeks Resident Studio Artists
The Arts Barn is now accepting applications for its Artist-in-Residence program. Online applications must be completed by 11:30 p.m. on June 12, 2014. Required supplemental materials are due by close of business on June 16, 2014. Artists will be selected by a jury panel and must be qualified and available for a moderate amount of community teaching and instruction or similar activities for which they may be compensated.
The Arts Barn has one 330 square foot studio and one 480 square foot studio for lease. Located on the perimeter of the building, the spaces afford natural light and 24/7 access. Both studios have a sink and cabinet area. Because of the intimate nature of the facility, certain media or scale of activity may not be appropriate for the space. Scale drawings of the studio spaces are available for review here.
The annual rental fees are $9/square foot for City of Gaithersburg residents and $10/square foot for nonresidents, prorated into monthly payments along with a modest monthly utility surcharge. Artists are encouraged to consider joint applications for space to help defray expenses and meet the Arts Barn’s minimum requirement of 40 hours/month of operation. Leases are for a one year term and are renewable without reapplication for a second and third year if mutually agreed upon by both parties. The Arts Barn is located at 311 Kent Square Road in Gaithersburg.
