Call for Visual Artists: Summer, Autumn & Winter 2015, Apply Now

Emerging, Mid-career and Established VISUAL ARTISTS … you can apply now!

PINEA Art Space:
PINEA is an Artist in Residence Program located in the coastal town of Rota. It's an initiative organized by a private non-profit organization based at the Andalusian Coast (Spain) which main aim is to establish artists in residence programs created with the goal of providing a platform to bring contemporary creative activities, and is based on the idea that such activity plays a vital role in social and cultural development.

STUDIOS:
PINEA art space is located in a 1950' building strategically located between the town's historic centre and the local natural spaces as beaches, pine forests and dunes.

The shared Art Space can accommodate up to three artists, and are equipped with Wireless Internet Connection, three studios, two andalusian terraces (patios) for meetings, relaxing and working, and a multi-space for events, a full equipped kitchen and three bathrooms.

Materials and equipment: reference material, projector (only for events), scanner, tv and DVD player, stationery equipment (craft knives, self-healing cutting mat, staplers, rulers, felt tip pens etc.), jigsaw, drill, tool set (hammers, screwdrivers, hacksaws etc.), extension cables, airbrush compressor, plastic buckets and utensils, glue gun, one easel, blackboard.

ACCOMODATION:
We offer to artists in residence the possibility to live in the studios, which are provided with single bed. The accommodation is not a rental apartment, but a free courtesy for artists in residence memberships. However, artists-in-residence can opt to rent and pay by themselves their own accomotation in a different location (for example if they don't want to live and work in the same space or if they want to be accompanied by friends or relatives). Anyway, in both cases, the artist-in-residence membership dues are the same.
