Auburn seeks applicants for an artist in residence

The residency will take place during June and July 2023

Attention artists: The City of Auburn is searching for artists to apply for the 2023 Mary Olson Farm Artist in Residence.

The residency, which takes place during June and July, provides a $3,500 stipend and studio space in the large historic barn on the 67-acre farm.

In addition to the facility, the artist in residence will have the opportunity to put on an exhibition and an artist talk in the city.

The artist is expected to spend at least 10 hours per week at the farm for eight weeks and host two “open studio” sessions for the public as well as one artist-led workshop that exhibits techniques or inspiration to the public.

Any artist or team of artists who live in Washington, Oregon or Idaho and who create two- or three-dimensional art are encouraged to apply for the residency.

The application deadline for the 2023 Mart Olson Farm Artist in Residence program is Oct. 6, 2022, at 10:59 p.m. You can apply for the residency online.
