Resident Arts seeks 12 artists to participate in a unique artist-in-residence and exhibition experience. Over the course of a year, selected visual and audio artists will, for one month each, participate in a one-of-a-kind artist-in-residence at Clarity Float Spa, participating in three sensory deprivation experiences (90 minutes each), and creating work inspired by these experiences. Artists will be expected to produce three completed works of visual art or music. In early 2018, an exhibition curated from the 36 completed works will be presented at Resident Arts’ gallery. A publication of completed works will be produced in conjunction with the exhibition. Resident Arts takes a 30% of all works sold in its gallery and Clarity Float Spa will receive one of the compeleted works from each artist for part of their permanent collection. No deadline, submissions accepted until filled. To submit your work for consideration, send an email to Madeleine at with a short explanation of why you want to participate in this opportunity and three examples of your work. Selected artists will be notified within two weeks of submission. Residencies will be one month long each beginning on January 1, 2017.
