100W Corsicana 2020 Artist and Writer Residency Applications

Expansive Studios in Historic Texas Lodge offer generous space and time between Houston and Dallas.

Description of residency program
100 West grants artists and writers residencies to create work in this historic building repurposed for studio space. Large scale, light-flooded rooms are provided alongside complete living accommodations and woodshop access to produce work in two or three dimensions, installation, or writing.  This residency experience combines artist-made furniture with period pieces in a building virtually unaltered since the 1890s.  Ongoing architectural preservation effectively backdrops contemporary studio practices.  100W maintains a close connection with Dallas culture less than an hour's drive from downtown Corsicana, where faded vestiges of the nineteenth-century oil boom make it quintessentially Texas.

Fees and support
100W offers the applications linked below on our website for artists and writers seeking full-funded, partially-funded, and non-funded studio residencies.

Applicants qualify to receive funding from 100W, our partnerships, local grants, and the opportunity to exchange an artwork to compensate the residency rate.  The majority of 100W residents receive funding in some form.

Duration of residency
This residency is available seasonally from January - May, and October - December 2020.
 100W takes a Summer hiatus June - September.

Disciplines, work equipment and assistance, accommodation and studio/ workspace
100W encourages 2-month residencies for 2020, for artists and writers to reach effective studio rhythm and produce in-depth work.  We are seeking artists who would benefit from 100W's large scale studios, and who request adequate time to justify the utility in these spaces.  However, applicants may select their ideal duration for any term between 2 weeks and 2 months.  Due to 100W's tight calendar, an accepted applicant's preferred duration may not be matched.

100W hosts 3 - 4 Artists and Writers in one building simultaneously.  Our residency building balances personal workspace with a common kitchen, dining and living rooms.
Past, accepted 100W residents are eligible to reapply.
100W welcomes collaborative applicants, with a maximum of 2 residents sharing a studio.

Artist Applicants submit 5 examples of work.
Writer Applicants submit 2 examples of work, max 2000 words each.
