Bailey Contemporary Arts Center Seeks New Artists In Residence

Bailey Contemporary Arts Center in Pompano Beach has announced a call for artists in residence for the 2022-2223 cycle, which runs October 1 through to June 30.

The BaCA studio artist program (AiR program) is designed to encourage and nurture the creative growth of artists whose work will impact the larger cultural landscape while integrating visual, musical, literary and performance artists into a dynamic collaborative community. Participating artists are expected to have experience working independently although interdisciplinary collaborations during the residency that result in new works are encouraged. Applications are due by May 30, 2022, through

"BaCA has been the home to many outstanding artists in residence since the program's inception," said Phyllis Korab, Cultural Affairs Director. "Next season, we look forward to welcoming another group of creatives to our venue; providing them with the inspiring and nurturing environment that will allow their talents to flourish."

One of the key benefits for residents is the marketing visibility that is integrated into the program, including a one-time feature as "artist of the month," with exhibit space in the 2nd floor gallery during the featured period. In addition, there will be a kick-off event, monthly exposure during the first Friday Old Town Untapped events, and a grand showcase at the end of the residency. There will also be other opportunities for artists to sell at different events including Green Market Pompano Beach which occurs November through April.

Eligible artists range from emerging to well-established, and work in all artistic disciplines and media including drawing, painting, sculpture, photography, film, video, new media, installation, fiction and nonfiction writing, poetry, dance, music, interdisciplinary, social practice and architecture. This is a national artist call, but housing, transportation and other stipends are not included in this AiR program.

Artists must be 18 years of age and not be enrolled in an academic program. A $25 application fee will be charged. The artists selected will pay a below-market participation fee of $300 per month for access to their studio space. There will also be a portfolio review opportunity, if desired.

An esteemed panel of judges will be reviewing all submissions:
