Exceptional Visual Artist Scholar Series

The Exceptional Scholar Series offers professional space for two Master of Fine Art graduate students per year as their final thesis show. The culminating exhibition launches them into their profession as an artist. With the series, we underscore exceptional artists attending regional institutions while highlighting Albuquerque’s innovative contemporary art scene.

Follow the same application procedure as General Submissions above, noting the MFA show as part of the proposal. Please do not send inquiry emails.


Residency Submission Guidelines

Proposals for Summer 2018  are now CLOSED.
Open application for Summer 2019 TBA. Sign up for our newsletter to be notified.

Every other year, a curatorial team will select two artists/groups to participate in one 4-6 week project each that directly engages communities in Albuquerque. The artists/artist groups selected for the residencies should expand the notion of what it means to work in a socially-responsible manner. STF acts as a liaison between the A.I.R. and local agencies/resources that are open to collaborating with artists.

The artists will be provided housing, studio space, access to the fabrication shop, travel funds ($500), and a stipend ($1500) for the residency. STF’s fabrication workspace contains a basic woodworking shop (table saw, band saw, miter saw, sanders), hand held power tools, and a light metal shop including a TIG/MIG welders, a chop saw, and grinders.

Residencies will result in an exhibition and inclusion in a catalog.

The STF Artist-in-Residence Program is generously supported by the Fulcrum Fund in partnership with the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts and the Albuquerque FUNd.
