Since 1993, the Serie Project has provided a space for artists to learn the art of serigraphy (silk screen printing) and has helped artists promote and exhibit their work. Since its inception, the organization has helped foster the work of more than 250 artists from different backgrounds. In collaboration with Mexic-Arte Museum, the organization also presents a yearly art exhibit.
The nonprofit organization’s Artist in Residence program is now accepting applications for artists 18 years or older who are not currently enrolled in an educational institution. The program will give artists one to two weeks to produce a design and create up to 50 serigraphs and additional proofs, half of which the artist gets to keep. Printing will take at the Coronado Studio in Austin. The project will provide accommodations for resident artists, but cannot pay for travel expenses. All prints must be completed by July.
The application should include an image proposal of the serigraph design the artist intends to make if accepted into the program, a resume, an artist statement, examples of recent work and an application fee. Deadline to apply is July 15. Although the organization focuses on supporting Latino artists, it strives for diversity by also selecting a third of the artists from different ethnic backgrounds.
