ALCHEMY 2018 OPEN CALL ARTIST RESIDENCY PRINCE EDWARD COUNTRY, ONTARIO

Programmed Art Residency
Prince Edward County, Ontario, Canada
www.makealchemy.com

Program Dates: August 12 - 22, 2018
Submission Deadline: February 15, 2018

Alchemy is a residency devoted to the exploration of the synergy between artistic practice and the cooking and sharing of locally cultivated food in a community setting. Participants delve into individual or collaborative work in a variety of mediums (visual arts, sculpture, photography, performance art, writing or video) inspired by their surroundings and shared at the end of the residency. Artists immerse themselves in their own practice during Prince Edward County’s lush summer season, while also contributing culinary creativity to lively salon style communal dinners. Shared menus will be based on the group’s appetite for preparing what is available locally in late summer. Readings and discussions will probe the creative intersection of food and art, and guest talks will help us better understand the magic and inspiration created by making and sharing art and food. Alchemy is programmed and co-facilitated by two strong advocates for these ideas:

Claire M. Tallarico is a trained chef, urban gardener and visual artist passionate about exploring and documenting the intersection between creative practice and food in community settings.

Tonia Di Risio is a visual artist. Her work has developed through ongoing investigations of the growing, making, preserving, celebrating, and sharing of food.
