Residency Opportunity at Llantarnam Grange Arts Centre
CALL FOR ARTISTS
Oriel Davies announces the second of two flora artist residencies.
As part of flora, an ambitious arts project, originated by Oriel Davies we invite professional artists working across any medium from Wales and further afield to apply for a residency at Llantarnam Grange Arts Centre in Cwmbran, a renowned venue for its exciting exhibitions and education programmes, early in 2016.
The residency at Llantarnam Grange Arts Centre will take place from 16 January –13 February 2016 with an exhibition or presentation of work as an outcome of the residency 13 February – 12 March 2016. Llantarnam Grange Arts Centre is based in a 19th Century Victorian manor house and grounds – this residency offers scope for an artist to respond to the site as well as context
The artist will be selected on the basis of the originality of their approach to the residency, enthusiasm and curiosity for Llantarnam Grange Arts Centre and its work, the ability to bring added-value to the venue as a result of the residency, and an aspiration to further their own practice. Llantarnam Grange Arts Centre has a strong track record of working collaboratively with artists at all levels from Wales, the UK and overseas and across a wide range of disciplines.
