The resident artists for the 2023/2024 cycle have been selected. Applications for the 2025 cycle will open in Fall 2024. Independent visual artists who work in the following mediums are encouraged to apply: painting, drawing, sculpture, printing, digital photography (there is no dark room available at this time), film, fiber arts, and mixed media. In addition to the studio space, resident artists will also receive a $250 stipend, and have access to the Digital Art Lab, outfitted with the Adobe Creative Suite, and a collection of photography and film equipment.
In addition to their First Friday show, Resident Artists are encouraged to host an Open Studio Saturday–one Saturday out of the 4-5 week stay where the artist opens the doors to their studio and encourages the public to come, watch the artist at work, and ask questions. Each residency begins on the first of the selected month and extends till First Friday of the next month, culminating in an exhibition on that First Friday. Resident artists are selected by an outside advisory committee of artists and arts professionals. BCAC supports a diverse array of artists across socio-economic backgrounds, culture, age, education, and geography.
