(HOUSTON, TX) August 27, 2021 — In conjunction with its 20th anniversary, Houston Center for Contemporary Craft (HCCC) is pleased to announce its newest class of residents for 2021 – 2022, a group of outstanding artists working in a variety of craft disciplines.
For 20 years, the Center’s artist residency program has offered time and space for craft artists to focus on their creative work and interact with the public. The program supports emerging, mid-career, and established artists working in all craft media, including but not limited to clay, fiber, glass, metal, wood and mixed media. This year, more than 100 artists applied from all over the U.S. and beyond, and 10 artists were selected for a three-to-twelve-month residency. The juried selection was based on quality of creative work, ability to interact with the public, career direction, and program diversity. In addition to 24/7 access to studio space, HCCC provides the artists with a materials-and-living stipend, a variety of professional development opportunities, and a group exhibition at the conclusion of the residency cycle.
