    The Art Center is excited to announce the 2020 Artist Residency Program, in our space at the Washington Street Mills in Dover, NH. We welcome artists working in a wide variety of mediums, including painting, sculpture, fiber arts and mixed media, who are interested in temporary studio space and exhibiting in our gallery. Three (3) four-month residencies will be available beginning February 2020. This opportunity is made free to the selected artists thanks to, our Benefactor, Peter Henry of Market Square Jewelers. This opportunity of a lifetime is valued at $2,500.

    Residency Program Periods:
    February 1, 2020 through May 31, 2020 (Deadline January 13, 2020)
    June 1, 2020 through September 30, 2020
    October 1, 2020 through January 31, 2021

    This is a studio residency only; housing is not included.

    Artists will have the opportunity to immerse themselves in their art practice, with access to draw inspiration from Dover’s historic downtown, the Cocheco River, and the local arts and culture scene. Artists will have full access to a 160 square foot studio space with a shared utility sink. 

    The selected artists will have four months to develop a body of work throughout their residency that will be displayed in the 2020 Artist Residency Exhibition in the gallery space at its conclusion.
