The Taos Ceramics Center (TCC) is seeking two accomplished ceramic artists for our new Artist-in-Residence (AiR) program that will begin October 15, 2022. The residencies are for a minimum of six months and maximum of one year.
This is an outstanding opportunity for those seeking to spend time in what many consider the richest arts environment in the US, surrounded by extraordinary natural beauty, and a wonderful community. Our studio, gallery, and supply store opened two years ago and has already established a reputation for quality, creativity, and innovation attracting regular members, students, and collectors from as far away as Albuquerque, Santa Fe, and Abiquiu. We are offering a wonderful two-bedroom/two-bath furnished residence immediately adjacent to the TCC studio for our Artists-in-Residence accommodations. Bedrooms and baths are on opposite sides of the house with a common kitchen, dining and living room. Numerous patios and porches outdoors.
We are offering AiRs 24/7 access to the TCC studio, including all equipment, kilns, and studio glazing materials as well as a 10% discount on all clay purchases from our store. AiRs will be expected to teach a minimum of one 3-4 hour class per week (paid), and 8 hours/week of studio maintenance that includes general cleaning, kiln loading/unloading, reclaim maintenance/pugging, studio glaze maintenance, and possibly kiln building (if experienced).
Our 1200 sq. ft. exhibition gallery is considered by many to be the best in Taos. It is frequented by both locals throughout northern NM as well as tourists from throughout the US and beyond. AiRs will be provided the opportunity for a resident exhibit in the TCC Gallery towards the end of their residency at a 70/30 split of sales.
The TCC is looking for a modest rent, well below market rate, of $750/mo per resident. It includes all utilities, wi-fi, Roku, and a beautifully landscaped exterior. There’s even parking for a smaller RV.
If you are interested in this opportunity, please send us your resume/bio and a letter detailing your interest to email@example.com not later than July 31,2022. Also include your preference of 6 months or one year residency. We will be reviewing all applicants, interviewing, and making selections by August 15.
