The ideal candidate for ARC is a self-motivated individual able to work well independently and within a larger organization. The successful resident is eager to be involved with our diverse mission & goals such as workshops, lectures, community partnerships and exhibitions. Candidates who enjoy the team spirit in working with staff, other residents and visiting artists/instructors are encouraged to apply. The four artists selected each year work in a variety of media which reflects the strength of ARC’s workshop offerings and resources. Residents are selected by a review committee composed of the board of directors and professionals in the field. They will be selected based on the quality of their work, commitment to their practice, and ability to interact positively with the community at large.
ARC is open to permanent residents of the United States living outside the greater Chattanooga area. Artists who are or will be enrolled in a college or university art degree-granting program during the time of the residency are not eligible to apply.
