Call for Entry: 2019 Artist in Residence Program

Summer 2019

Juried by: The Image Flow Staff


The Image Flow Artist in Residence Program

The Image Flow invites applications for a 2-3 month Artist Residency program to support a visual artist working within photography and/or image-based media. This is a work-only residency; artists not local to the area are welcome to apply but will need to secure housing arrangements independently. The time frame for the residency is flexible, ideally taking place between the months of June and September 2019.


Following the 2018 AIR call, we were so impressed with the quality of submissions from applicants that we decided to accept two artists, both working with analog processes. One artist created experimental photograms using our traditional black and white darkroom space, while the other continued a body of work in the gum bichromate process utilizing our alternative darkroom facilities. We are excited to once again host an artist (or artists) that can benefit from the use of our resources in 2019.


The selected resident photographer will gain access to our photo studio and lighting, a dedicated workspace with Epson 7880 and 3880 printers, traditional and alternative darkrooms, and a limited supply of inkjet papers for printing purposes. Participants in the residency program are expected to use their time to pursue their own personal projects, which may include photographing, printing, or other work inherent to their specific endeavors.


Note: Residents will need to provide their own primary camera(s), as well as a personal laptop or computer for use with the Epson printers. When using the darkroom facilities, residents must provide their own chemicals/papers.



All artists living or working in the United States working in photography and/or image-based processes.
