Fall Artist Residency
Two- to five-week residencies September 1 – October 5, 2013.
Fall Artists in Residence at Ox-Bow are given the time, solitude, and focus often unavailable to so many working artists. The application is open to all persons who are not currently full-time students. At Ox-Bow, artists can enjoy 24-hour access to their studios, and an inspirational setting, free from the expectations of commercial and academic demands.
During the fall season, Artists in Residence have the opportunity to work in studios not available during the summer session. They also enjoy a more intimate community of like-minded, and diverse professionals. The fall season is also an ideal time to propose group or collaborative work.
Cost: $250 per week (includes room and board and use of studios).
Deadline: May 12, 2013

John M. Hartigan Memorial Scholarship for Painters
John M. Hartigan was a life-long Chicagoan, an artist, a patron of the arts, and a dedicated family man. A gifted lawyer, and an engaged community member, John was always interested in civic affairs, sitting on a number of Boards. Over the years he took courses at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, as well as summer courses at Ox-Bow. John loved both the camaraderie, and the artistic synergy of the campus. The Hartigan Endowment is used to support the on-going education of artists-in-residence whose medium is acrylic and/or oil. This award is available to applicants for both the Summer and Fall Residency cycles. Please see the Summer or Fall Residency Application for more information on how to apply for this scholarship.
Joan Mitchell Foundation Fall Scholarship and Stipend
Ox-Bow is pleased to be the recipient of a grant award from the Joan Mitchell Foundation. These funds are awarded in 2013 to ten individual painters and sculptors who are able to spend 4-5 weeks at Ox-Bow during the fall session. Selected artists will have their residency fees waived and receive a stipend after completing their residency. Apply on the application. Please include a brief statement of financial need. Please see the Fall Residency Application for more information on how to apply for this scholarship.
Joan Mitchell is one of Ox-Bow’s most distinguished alumni. The Joan Mitchell Foundation was established in 1993 and is dedicated to supporting the work of individual painters and sculptors through grants. The Mitchell legacy and her commitment to promoting artmaking as a cultural necessity has funded some of the country’s most prominent visual artists. Through its generous grant to Ox-Bow, and other similar residency programs, it will ensure that next generations of artists will continue to thrive.
