Laura Grace Barrett Residency Program
Laura Grace Barrett Printmaking residencies are available from 1 week - 3 months depending on the needs of the artist. The ZACC’s selection committee will choose new residents throughout the year depending on availability. The selections are based on the quality of the work, its artistic merit, and the diversity of the prospective group in terms of work, background, and stage of career development.
Long and Short-term Residents work alongside our Community Artists and receive 24 -hour access to the ZACC Print Shop, semi-private studio space (approximately 125 sq. ft.), a locker, flat file space, plus advice & assistance from printshop manager and printmaking community.
Resident artists are encouraged to teach classes as a way to share their knowledge and experiences, as well as to interact with our local Missoula community.
Residents are encouraged to put work up for sale in our sales gallery, and all long-term residents are invited to present a solo exit show near the end of their residency.
The ZACC expects that each resident will contribute approximately 5 hours a week in studio and gallery maintenance. This contribution may include such general studio tasks as cleaning and organizing the studio, gallery assistance , assisting with studio improvements, and performing other duties and special projects as needed. Residents are also asked to assist with the production of fundraising events and are often called upon to offer technical or creative advice to studio artists, interns, and students.
