Torpedo Factory Art Center Visiting Artist Program

Deadline: February 28, 2010.

The Torpedo Factory Art Center invites emerging and experienced artists to apply for one, two, or three residencies between June 1 and August 31, 2010.

The Torpedo Factory Art Center in Alexandria Virginia is home to more than 140 visual artists working in 82 studios. Artists create in a wide variety of media including painting, fiber, jewelry, ceramics, printmaking, cast and stained glass, and sculpture. The Torpedo Factory is open to the public every day; visitors are invited and welcomed into studios to watch artists at work, ask questions, and purchase original art – allowing the public an opportunity to share in the excitement and fascination of the creative process. The projects undertaken by Visiting Artists for this self-directed, creative residency must be compatible with available working studio spaces and facilities. Visiting Artists will be provided with studio space and will be able to display and sell original work.

Finalists will be selected by juror Jack Rasmussen, Director and Curator of the American University Museum. There is no application fee. Download the Prospectus and Application Form from Send questions to: No telephone calls please.

I'm flying back home early tonite and they're expecting another major snow storm in the Mid Atlantic, so I hope that we can land - otherwise I may be stuck somewhere between Detroit and DC.
