Thanks to all of our applicants for sharing their work with the Durham Art Guild and with our Juror, Jennifer Sudul Edwards, Curator of the Bechtler Museum of Modern Art.

The Durham Art Guild is excited to continue a partnership with Castalia at Meadowmont in facilitating a unique venue to showcase regional artwork. Castalia at Meadowmont management and tenants seek larger scale 2-D works of art to display in their large, open and bright first floor lobby space programmed and curated by the Durham Art Guild. The aesthetic and image of the space lends itself to larger works focusing on form, line and/or abstraction but is not solely limited to those specific characteristics.
On behalf of the Durham Art Guild and the 2016 Artist in Residence jury panel, thank you to all the applicants for sharing your work and your aspirations with us. There were 25 applications and they were highly competitive and diverse which was very exciting and also very challenging.
The 2016 Artist in Residence Program will provide professional studio space at Golden Belt Artist Studios, a stipend, regular support from and access to DAG’s professional resources and networks, and an exhibition in Room 100 Gallery at Golden Belt for one selected artist this year.
