Approach

The Residency

At the core of Township10’s residency is an invitation to activate the studios and focus on creating a body of work. 

 ​

  • Residencies are awarded--there are no residency fees. Accommodations and 24/7 studio access are free of charge.

  • Residencies vary in length from 4-6 weeks.

  • Emerging as well as established artists are encouraged to apply. Applicants who are currently enrolled in a degree program are ineligible. 

 

  • Applications are reviewed by a rotating panel of advisors, past residents, artists, and curators.

  • Artists are solely responsible for travel, meals, and material/firing expenses.

  • Groups and collaborators may apply.

 

  • Proof of vaccination is required for residency at Township10.

 

You may have lots of questions. We have tried to be very thorough and address them here: Frequently Asked Questions. 

The Open Call for residencies in 2024 is closed. We thank you sincerely for your thoughtful applications. Applications were reviewed by a panel of jurors and finalists sent forward.

Reflection from Resident ArtisT Chris Suarez

I wish I was at Township10. That’s all I have been thinking to myself since I left the smoky mountains of North Carolina. I miss the green trees, the sounds of birds and the flowing creek; I miss the solitude and the freedom. I miss the people and the energy of a place that will never leave my heart.

Possibilities

Expectations

 

Township10 is envisioned as an intimate space reserved for deep art practice, material exploration, and community building.

 

We have the highest expectations for the respect, thoughtfulness, and care that guests will bring to this experience. A few things we lay out are:

 

  • We ask artists to incorporate shared meals and poetry into their stay.
     

  • We encourage artists to connect with the local community and share their perspective.
     

  • We select a finished work for our collection. 
     

  • We request a written reflection to be archived for past and future residents.

Bill Jones

Bill Jones is a studio potter. Drawing from the vernacular of traditional functional pottery, his work focuses on the sculptural potential of clay—the intimacy of touch, the expression of line, and energy in form. He grew up in Bucks County, PA, studied architecture and design, and landed squarely in the clay community after a stint as a work/study student at Penland School of Craft. Bill received formal training as a potter in the Cardew-Hewitt lineage, completing a rigorous two-year apprenticeship with artist Daniel Johnston in Seagrove, NC.
