Artist in Residency scheme 2018

Westbury Arts Centre celebrates new artists!

Each year we invite two graduates to come and spend 3 months with us here at Westbury.  Graduates are invited to apply giving the chosen applicants a unique chance of engaging with a working arts centre.

In 2017 Isobel Morris & Andy Meredith, were chosen  – They were based in a studio within the house and used the time to develop their creative practices, reach new audiences and work alongside practising artists.  The time spent here culminated in an exhibition “Pile & Stroke”

One of Westburys resident artists and organiser of the scheme, Kate Edwards says    “It’s really exciting to be able to support young artists to continue their practice after graduation and being able to provide them with free studio space and the opportunity to learn from their peers “

We are now on the look out for graduates for 2018…
