The ARCH development corporation located in the heart of historic Anancostia owns and operates Honfleur and Vivid Solutions Galleries.
The ARCH artist residency program is an opportunity for artists to pursue their creative projects amid DC’s vibrant and diverse urban environment. Two residencies (for up to four artists each session) are offered; spring and fall. The residencies are approximately eight weeks each.
Each artist will work closely with the creative staff at the Honfleur Gallery and The Gallery at Vivid Solutions to determine the parameters of the residency and needs of the artist in advance of their arrival. These parameters will focus primarily on details of the artists’ project, but are also about how to best connect to the local community, foster dynamic interaction and develop exposure to the resources of the greater DC cultural community.
The program will offer free housing and free workspace to participating artists. Application fee $25.
