100 West grants artists and writers residencies to create work in this historic building repurposed for studio space. Large scale, light filled rooms are provided alongside complete living accommodations and wood shop access to produce work in two or three dimension, installation, or writing. This residency experience is enriched by artist-made furniture and antiques in a building virtually unaltered since the 1890s. Original mill work, light fixtures, painted doors and walls now cracked and worn remain amid three years of preservation work, and effectively contrast contemporary modes of art making. 100W maintains a close connection with Dallas art culture less than an hour away from downtown Corsicana, where faded vestiges of the nineteenth century oil boom make it quintessentially Texas.
100W offers the applications linked above for artists and writers seeking both funded and non-funded studio residencies. Two fully funded, 1 month residencies are available for one artist and one writer between January – May, and October – December 2018.
Applicants may also receive partial 100W funding, local grants noted on the application form, or the opportunity to exchange an artwork to compensate residency rates. 100W takes a Summer hiatus June – September (see below for details). This application will be reviewed for multiple upcoming opportunities, including group exhibitions, and 100W Catalogue contributors.
Residency durations are customizable from 2 weeks to 2 months. However, 100W encourages applicants to consider a minimum of 1 month to reach studio rhythm and produce in-depth work.
100W welcomes collaborative applicants, with a maximum of 2 residents sharing a studio.
