New Artist in Residence Program at Intersections Studio & Gallery

Artist in Residence at Intersections

Intersections Wood Gallery & Studio is launching an Artists in Residence program.

For the month of February the studio workshop at Intersections will be available to artists and makers who need time and space to develop a project.

Submission of a one page proposed project will include:

  • past experience of working with wood. Include 5 images of previous work in an email
  • description of the proposed project
  • the length of time needed, up to one month
  • short bio up to 200 words or two page resume
Proposals may be submitted at any time to, Intersections Artist in Residence.

If the Resident wishes to offer an evening talk, one day workshop, or other interaction with members of Intersections and the public, a fee will be paid to the artist. A brief description of the workshop or
talk should be included in the one page proposal.

There is equipment and materials at Intersections that may be used. If the Resident needs particular materials or equipment this should be specified in the proposal. The Resident is responsible for procuring any materials not immediately available at Intersections. A fee for Intersections-supplied materials may be applied. The studio is fully equipped for woodworking; however, if there is a particular tool or machine needed to complete the project Intersections will consider a purchase. Technical support is available from Stephen Hogbin or Pierre Rousseau. Machines may be used from 8am to 8pm. The residency will start with a formal “Use and Safety of the Space and Machines” session to familiarise the participant with all aspects of the studio/workshop. There will be no charge for use of the studio/workshop. Full details of studio equipment are available on request.

Accommodation is available in the Intersections library/apartment for $35 a night or $230 for one week (details on request). The library/apartment has an extensive selection of books and catalogues with a focus on design, woodworking, wood, and trees.

Intersections would like the opportunity to exhibit the residents work and create an exhibition in the gallery for the month of February and March. We prefer the work to be for sale. A percentage of each sale will be directed to Intersections.

About Intersections Wood Gallery and Studio
Intersections was founded in 2015 by Stephen Hogbin and a group of nineteen people interested in woodworking. The gallery specializes in the art of trees and objects made from wood. We aspire to show where excellence meets quality by members and others wanting to present their work. Exhibitions show the work of artists, designers and makers often in relationship to a Network Evening presentation. Intersections is a membership organization and also open to others interested in woodworking classes. The residency is designed to help participants work through new ideas and projects.
