Art gallery seeks artist in residence
Milford Arts Council’s Firehouse Art Gallery is accepting applications for its artist in residence.
The residency was created with the intent of supporting aspiring or professional artists who are working to further establish their careers. Milford Arts Council sponsorship of individual artists is intended to provide temporary support through the provision of low cost housing and studio space as a transitional opportunity. The apartment will become available May 1. The deadline for applications is April 8.
The 750-square-foot residency was designed for an artist’s use and includes studio space within the dwelling.
The one-bedroom apartment has a living/dining area, a kitchen, bath and the studio.
The grounds include off street parking, a large terrace and a bicycle rack. The monthly cost, which includes heat, hot water and electricity, will be $800, with a deposit of $800.
It is anticipated that the “artist in residence” will be active in the maintenance and management of the gallery and workshop.
