The six-week residence is offered in Griffith’s room requirements, thanks to Western Riverina Arts. The duo teamed up to offer a paid six-week residency for one lucky man, giving them the opportunity to set up a studio space or shop in downtown Griffith. The use of the space comes with a promise of natural support from ROR owner and artist Christy-Lee Gooseberry and the opportunity to communicate with others using rooms. Camilla Whitehead of Western Riverina Arts said the offer would be a good chance for artists starting or intermediate careers. “This will probably appeal most to artists who are just in the middle of their journey, who may need space to test the water, they can see what their first public studio or gallery will be like,” she explained. Ms. Whitehead added that such an opportunity was open to all artists, not just those in the Western River. She especially wanted to hear from the artists next. “It would be an interesting opportunity to explore the Griffith area as well as contact or chat with artists from different regions.” READ MORE Later this year, the selected artist will have the opportunity to re-use the space to speak with an artist or an exhibition that is fully supported. Ms. Whitehead said they hope to be able to potentially make more residences in the future, and now they want to focus on reactions to the former. Applications will be evaluated by a group of members from Western Riverina Arts and the ROR space to select artists who benefit most from working in the creative center and who will need a special studio space. Applications for the residency are open and close on April 24. More information and applications are available on the Western Riverina Artists website.
