Sculptors Qld has had four very successful artists in residence.

These relationships have been of great mutual benefit and expressions of interest are welcome.

Residency

Studio Facilities

Situated in inner city Brisbane, Queensland, Australia the Sculptors Qld Studio is an old wooden building set in the grounds of the historic Old Museum Building.

The Studio is surrounded by large shade fig trees providing shade and cooling to the Studio, and is also an excellent place to sketch.

The studio has 5 metre walls, with concrete floor. Massive wooden doors on both sides allow excellent ventilation.

Aims

The aims of the residency are to:

  • Encourage and provide a professional development opportunity and experience both for SQ and the artist.
  • Broaden the experiences of SQ members and the resident artists.
  • Provide interaction of members with working artists through observation, discussion and mentoring.
  • Develop closer ties between the community and SQ through educational talks, workshops and exhibitions emanating from the presence of the resident artists.
  • Create a vibrant and inclusive arts hub.

Focus

  • Folio of past and recent work.
  • History of professional activity.
  • Brief proposal of what they would like to do during their stay.
  • Summary of what their residency can offer SQ
  • Advice as to whether they are able to meet their own accommodation costs.
  • The artist’s public liability insurance status. Where they have no insurance the Society would grant them membership to take advantage of the Society’s insurance.

The history of the residency would be recorded via photographs and video. The Society may arrange an end residency exhibition at a gallery or in the Studio. A memento such as a piece of work completed during their residency or working drawings etc.

Artist’s Medium

In consideration of the medium and their method of working, the artist must:

  • Provide their own tools.
  • Work in a way that is free of Health and Safety issues for themselves and others.
  • Attracts no Insurance Issues.
  • Work in a way that accommodates use of “clean” facilities and Society activities.
