ARC Summer (June) Featured Artist Residency

The ideal candidate for our Featured ARC Residency is a self-motivated individual able to work well independently and within a community. Residents are selected based on the quality of their work, commitment to their practice, and ability to interact positively with the community at large. Selected artists will exemplify our diverse mission & goals with workshops, lectures, community partnerships and exhibitions that broaden and expand the spectrum of art in Chattanooga. 


Disciplines, work equipment and assistance

Open to artists working in any discipline. Access to some basic wood and metal working tools are available, and our resources can provide working with most any medium. Some limited assistance is available if needed.

Duration of residency

Artists live and work in Chattanooga, TN, for the month of June leading up to an opening reception for their newly created exhibition. Approximately 31-33 days depending.



Featured Artists receive their own private room with a queen sized bed, dresser, and small closet, just 5 miles from downtown and 8 miles from the gallery/studio.
