Art Residency News Summer Stuff What's Up


Creating a ceramic at one of the several studios at Ox-Bow.

June 18, 2014

Hey! We’re still in the search of art residencies for this summer. Most residences have already started the summer and the fall deadlines may have passed, but you have the time to choose which one suits you. So don’t worry your little head off!

Today we’ll head over to what Ox-Bow (which just celebrated 103 years) has to offer.

Located at Saugatuck, Michigan, at the edge of Tallmadge Woods, Ox-Bow has a quiet, peaceful atmosphere. The campus is made of several studios: a painting and drawing studio, a paper/book studio, a ceramic studio, an open air metal sculpture studio, and an open air glassblowing facility.

Not only do you experience what Ox-Bow has to offer, but you can also enjoy the scenic surroundings!

The deadlines for Summer was April 6 (2 and 3 week residency June 1 – August 16, 2014) and the one for fall was last month on May 11 (2 to 5 week residency August 31 – October 4, 2014).

Don’t fret….there are accepting proposals for January 2015 Interim Session, as well as the Summer 2015 Session. Proposals are due Monday, May 5, 2015.

  • Winter Interim Session: January 4-17, 2015 2 weeks.
  • Summer Session: June 7 – August 22, 2015
