Jerome Residency at Highpoint Center for Printmaking

The Jerome Residency program is open to emerging Minnesota printmakers who already possess training in traditional printmaking techniques, and can provide original examples of such work. An “emerging” artist is generally defined as an artist who shows significant potential, yet has not received a commensurate amount of professional accomplishment and recognition regardless of age or recognition in other fields. Highpoint and the Jerome Foundation reserve the right to review and determine applicant status as“emerging.”

Applicants will be judged on the artistic merit of their work, their dedication, interest, and potential in printmaking, as well as the quality and clarity of their plan for the residency. To be eligible, artists must illustrate proficiency in a traditional printmaking medium (intaglio, lithography, screenprinting, monoprinting, or relief). Residents will be expected to observe Highpoint’s studio policies, guidelines, and etiquette as well as the conditions outlined in the Jerome Resident contract. Artists are also expected to give a brief gallery talk during their exhibition. Priority will be given to artists who have had little or no opportunity to work in a professional, non-academic printshop environment. Artists may not be a student during the residency period (September 2015 – May 2016). Minnesota residency must be maintained during the entire program. In addition, applicants must have resided in MN continuously since September 1, 2014 or earlier. Highpoint Center for Printmaking provides equal opportunity to all individuals regardless of race, national origin, color, sex, age, religion, sexual orientation, or disability. Artists of color are strongly encouraged to apply.
