In 2021, we initiated a new Inaugural Chautauqua Visual Arts (CVA) Artist-in-Residence program which takes place right before our main Residency Program. CVA has tremendous facilities in printmaking, ceramics and the latest technology and equipment in our digital media studio. Outside of the summer season, these facilities are not normally used. However, starting this June, we are thrilled to host two professional artists to use our substantial facilities and resources at the start of Chautauqua’s Summer Assembly Season.
In the first two weeks of Chautauqua Institution’s Summer Assembly, we have invited two professional artists selected by the Artistic Director and Galleries Director to make prints which will be available for acquisition at our galleries. These prints will be Chautauqua made and available to be Chautauqua owned! An opportunity to see two artists in action with our technicians assisting, this program embraces our mission of making space for others and allowing artists to create in our facilities. In addition, it opens our doors for Chautauquans to not only capture a glimpse of two exceptional artists making work, but to learn from them as well.
Prints that are made at CVA will be available for acquisition in our galleries as well as an edition donated by each artist made available at our Gala auction, raising money solely for scholarships.
Come to Chautauqua Visual Arts the first two weeks of the Summer Assembly to see the two selected artists in action!
