This residency provides young artists in BA or BFA programs with a place to explore new ideas, exchange techniques, and deepen their professional development in ceramics. Universities and Colleges from across the US are invited to nominate individual students for the ASPN residency. These students are juried and nominated by a committee comprised of RLCC staff and one invited juror chosen by RLCC annually. The selected juror is a nationally distinguished faculty member, this year’s juror is Gail Kendall, Emeritus Professor of Art, University of Nebraska, Lincoln. At the conclusion of the jurying period, five nominees are selected and will be asked to join the Red Lodge Clay Center for a three-week Artist in Residency during the month of May, 2017.

Artist-Invite-Artists Residency Groups provide an option for makers seeking a brief interlude from the customary solitude of private studio practices or makers who invest a majority of their time in academia or arts administration. Red Lodge Clay Center invites these individuals to coordinate their artist peer groups year round, convening in the south wing of Fox Studios for group residencies of two to four weeks. Contact David Hiltner, email@example.com for more information.
