standard projects residency Program

We are all about making

 
 
philosophy

Philosophy

The goal of Standard Projects is to share an open and productive environment for making fine art and handmade goods - encouraging material exploration and collaboration across trades.

Whether you are looking for some quiet time, a change of scenery or a table saw, we want to share this space and its resources. Facilitating other creative projects and helping artists refine their craft is what it's all about!

“In my own work I do everything by hand… my hand will always be imperfect, because it’s human…  If I spend a lot of time going over the line and over the line trying to make it straight, I will never be able to make it straight. You can always see the line waiver, and I think that’s where the beauty is.” - Margaret Kilgallen


Resources

The studio consists of an upper level wood and metal shops with outdoor workspace and just about every tool in the book. A sunny, open concept painting and fibers studio occupies part of the second floor with a range of industrial sewing machines and tons of space to spread out. A small retail space and gallery is just down the hall and showcases locally made goods, historical ephemera and beautiful bits and pieces graciously donated by artists-in-residence and friends of Standard Projects.

Available/free materials include paper/collage content, wood, fabric and so much coffee!

Accommodations 

During your residency you will be provided with a private bedroom, bathroom and small kitchenette. Residents are free to make use of the shared kitchen and communal spaces. Additionally, several work areas and tools will be available. A couple other makers may be alongside you so collaboration and communal awareness is key for a successful experience.

Average residency duration is 7-10 days but more or less may be granted based on the scope of work you hope to create. Please consider how you can contribute to Standard Projects - whether through a workshop, artist talk, donation to the gallery collection or for sale in the store front.

We do not have a fee. This is a donation-based residency program.
