What areas of Printmaking can I apply to pursue?:
In Cahoots Residency is a traditional live-in residency in which the selected CSP resident will live on site and make work freely over a one week period in October 2023. Applicants can propose etching (copper, ferric), monoprint, and relief printing on the Takach etching press (40 x 72 press bed) or Conrad 36 x 54 etching press, as well as book art projects in the bindery. For this session, the letterpresses are not available. Residency time will include 10 hours of mentorship/instruction.
In Cahoots Residency provides housing and studio space to both emerging and professional artists in a variety of mediums, with a focus on artist books, letterpress, printmaking (etching, relief, monoprint), writing, and collaboration. The residency hosts from three to five artists at a time. Residents are provided private individual guest houses (with kitchens and full bathrooms) and 24-hour access to the spacious shared studios. Residents do their own cooking. For those without a car, rides to the grocery store/supply store and weekly group field trips (to places such as Sonoma or the Pacific coast) are provided free of charge.
