We are pleased to announce that the Studio H Canada International Artist Residency is now accepting applications. This unique residency is custom-designed to meet your individual needs and goals in a safe and supportive environment.
Artists are invited to apply now for art residencies of any duration in this idyllic setting on Vancouver Island in British Columbia, Canada. Covid-19 protocols in place include high quality private accommodations and a large, well-spaced and open studio space. Only individual artists, artist-couples, or artists in a bubble may apply at this time to a maximum of two applicants.
Art practice can include most media. There is also a large tapestry loom, a sewing machine, and six work tables. Any artists working in textiles are welcome.
Photographers, media artists, installation and conceptual work, can all be undertaken here. If we do not have something, we can help to find it. Writers, poets, academics and researchers are also welcome to work here.
The current artist-in-residence is Nicole Melnicky, an MFA candidate at Ontario College of Art and Design University (OCAD) in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Her focus is in Interdisciplinary Art, Media and Design. Nicole received her BFA from Moore College of Art and Design, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, with a concentration in Fine Art with minors in Textile Design and Art History. She was hosted as an artist-in-residence at Vermont Studio Center, Toronto Biennial of Art, Otis College of Art and Design (Los Angeles, CA), The Ou Gallery (Cowichan, BC), and Studio H Canada in Metchosin, BC.
Through her paintings and research, Nicole explores the mixed-methodologies of queer utopia, dreamtime, queer time and place and queer futurity.
