About the Trestle Artist Residency: 

This residency is aimed at helping artists find a foothold in the art world while they develop a new body of work as an Trestle Art Space Member. Residents receive a 10% discount on the TAS Membership while getting additional support of 6 months advisory with Jason Stopa, Adrienne Tarver, Allison Kaufman, or Jennifer Schmidt. Residents are also given the opportunity to exhibit their work at Trestle. Participants receive all benefits of a Trestle Art Space Membership as well as monthly group advisory meetings which include critiques, guest speakers, and studio visits. By participating in this program artists take advantage of networking and community building opportunities in addition to having access to low-cost studio space. The residents give back to the community and get a peek into the administrative end of the art world by volunteering in the gallery or studio for three hours per month. All artists are invited to apply. Applications are accepted twice each year.


Part of the Trestle Artist Residency program is the option to participate in an end of year Residency Exhibition with rotating prominent guest curators. The guest curator for the 2019 residency cycle will be Eriola Pira.
