Artscape Gibraltar Point presents
Winter Island Artist-In-Residence Program 2019

Deadline: 8 October, 2018
Program Dates: 7 January – 29 April, 2019
Exhibition: June 2 – 8, 2018 - Artscape Youngplace

Artscape Gibraltar Point is seeking project proposals from artists working in all media for the Winter Island Artist-In-Residence program for 2019.

Now in its fourth year, Winter Island is a unique, juried artist-in-residence program aimed at emerging, mid-career and established artists hosted at Artscape Gibraltar Point, an artist residency located on the picturesque Toronto Islands.

Winter Island recognizes four artists annually who have demonstrated a strong and unique artistic voice while working in Canada’s visual arts community and provide them with one month of distraction-free studio time and accommodation to create and/or develop a new and exciting work, or body of work that engages and activates the artist community at Artscape Gibraltar Point and the Toronto Islands.

Selected artists will have the opportunity to present these works/projects to the public as a part of a Winter Island Group Exhibition to take place at the conclusion of the residency series at Artscape Youngplace Hallway Galleries, vitrines and select Flex Studios, in June 2019.
