Fantastic Opportunity for a residency and exhibition at Women Run Business

Artists converge at 2ndannual Art Jam
A week of creativity culminates in exhibition at The Galaxie
The Galaxie opens the entirety of its beautifully designed 11,000-square-foot collection of studios to Chicago and tri-state-area artists who are accepted to take part in a week-long residency that winds up with an exhibition and sale of their newly created works.

Art Jam is set for Saturday, August 22 through Friday August 28, at The Galaxie, 2603 West Barry, Chicago.

The week-long residency will feature an artist-juried exhibition of works completed during the week on Friday, August 28, from 7 - 11 p.m.

This integrated experience will provide 40 artists with the chance to work on-site in the same place simultaneously, gain experience, inspiration and to meet fellow artists, all while benefiting from open access to studio space.
All visual artists are invited to submit applications for this residency program by August 15th to meet the deadline. The program is open to, but not limited to sculptors, ceramicists, photographers, filmmakers, street artists, muralists, painters and print makers.

The Galaxie’s mission is to create opportunities for working artists to have a creative, legal and safe environment where they can work, meet with other artists, gain inspiration and to contribute to cultivating a strong and vital artists’ community on the Chicago art scene.
