The Creative Alliance Residency Program provides a highly visible, intense and creative environment for the production of artwork in all media.  The program accommodates 8 resident artists, one in each of the studios, for terms of one to three years.  It is intended for emerging artists as well as mid-career artists whose goal is to reinvigorate their work in an intensive, multi-disciplinary atmosphere. Artists are encouraged (but not required) to use the studios as their primary residence.  With the support of the Creative Alliance, Resident artists will be at the center of the Baltimore art scene, with a wealth of community contacts and professional resources at their fingertips.  Specific benefits include:

  • Built-in community of professional colleagues
  • Relationships with established artists and curators through ongoing studio visits & talks
  • Visibility through open studios public programs.
  • Extensive connections and exposure to diverse audiences, professional opportunities, other artists and community organizations.
  • Opportunity to present a major project through the Creative Alliance in a 2-person gallery exhibition, performance, screening, community art program or other appropriate project.
  • Potential use of Amalie Rothschild Gallery on second floor for short-term projects.
  • Marketing support from Creative Alliance staff.
