How do I become a Foundry Art Centre studio artist?
Artists must go through the annual jury process to become a Foundry Art Centre artist. All artists working in fine arts and fine crafts are eligible. Fine crafts include such work as ceramics, textiles, jewelry, all kinds of sculpture, glass and more. Note: The jury process is not a critique. Artists will not receive a critique of their work.
What are the benefits of being a Foundry Art Centre studio artist?
- Artist page on www.foundryartcentre.org which gets over 12,000 page hits per month
- Access to 24 hour studio space on a renewable one-year contract

How do I apply?
Submit the following on receiving day, June 2, 2013.
1. Complete application.
2. Six pieces of original finished 2D or 3D artwork created in the last two years.
- If you generally frame work, one piece must be framed. The others can be matted and shrink wrapped as appropriate.
- Affix the FAC ID tag (found on the last page of application) to the back or underside of each entry. There is no place for your name as you will be assigned a number at registration.
- 2D applicants must bring cardboard of appropriate size to protect submissions as they will be stacked against the wall. Do not put your name or any other identifying mark on the cardboard as the jury process is blind.
- All work must be totally dry. Wet paint will disqualify an applicant.
Who are the jurors?
The jurors are highly qualified professional artists, curators, teachers, museum directors and the like, who are independent of the Foundry Art Centre. Their decision is final. Jurors look for work that meets the highest standards of professionalism and promise.
