Residency Application

Cathedral Artist in Residence Application

We are now accepting applications for a 2016-2017 residency. The deadline is September 15.


This application is for the opportunity to be one of two Artists In Residence at Christ Church Episcopal Cathedral, located in downtown Eau Claire, on the corner of Farwell and Lake. Each Artist In Residence receives free use of a studio for one year in return for giving two lectures on their work over the course of that year and donating one piece of artwork made specifically for the Cathedral. The artists will also receive space on our website, publicity, and an exhibition of their work.

We want to give artists a place to work, to exhibit, and to meet. In return we want to learn about how and why you work, and to build a collection of artworks that inspire, challenge and revitalize all seekers of truth.

Please note that this is an offer of studio space only, not living quarters.
