Call for Proposals - Winter Island Artist Project Residency 2018

About Winter Islands 2018

Artscape Gibraltar Point is seeking project proposals from artists working in all media for the Winter Islands Artist-In-Residence program for 2018.

Now in its third year, Winter Island is a unique, juried,  artist-in-residence program aimed at emerging, mid-career and, established artists, hosted at Artscape Gibraltar Point, an artist residency located on the picturesque Toronto Islands.

The aim of the Winter Island program is to recognize four artists annually who have demonstrated a strong and unique artistic voice while working in Canada’s visual arts community and provide them with a month of distraction-free studio time to create and/or develop a new and exciting work, or body of work that seeks to engage with and/or activate the artist community at Artscape Gibraltar Point and the Toronto Islands. 

Selected artists will have the opportunity to present these works/projects to the public as a part of a Winter Island Group Exhibition to take place at the conclusion of the residency series at Artscape Youngplace Hallway Galleries, Vitrines and, select Flex studios, in late May/Early June 2018.
