Two unique Residency Programs have been designed this summer to offer both artists and students the opportunity to explore their craft, and to reflect and nurture their inner selves and creative talents. These programs are meant to attract and inspire self-motivated individuals who understand the importance of developing new work, honing their skills and spending meaningful time pursuing their interests while also embracing others who have a desire to learn about and experience the joys that come through art.
The Artist in Residency program offers the artist a free week’s stay in the White Cottage, full access to the studios in the Red Barn and grounds, and an opportunity to focus uninterrupted attention on the artist’s preferred talent. This gift includes the expectation that the artist will donate back to YCAC and/or community in the form of a lecture, demonstration or a piece of his or her art work. Travel and board not included.
The Host Residency offers, for a set fee, an artist the opportunity to provide education to students of the artist’s choosing with use of the White Cottage, studios in the Red Barn and grounds. Host a community open house at the end of your residency.

It is an exciting time at YCAC. Much is happening to make us more visible and successful in fulfilling our mission to the area community. Soon we will be moving into our new, yet historic, building on Main Street with a unique and bigger gallery, an office, and a more suitable workshop space. Plans are in place for more innovative uses of our Sunny Point location. We are looking forward to a brilliant and creative new future.
As a celebration of YCAC’s new era, we are planning an exhibit called NEW HORIZONS that will focus on our artists’ recent inventive, groundbreaking, unusual, and experimental art. We challenge all our artists to exhibit their new work that falls in this category. Have you done something different from your usual work? Experimented with a new medium? Tried a new technique? Can you create something that depicts our theme? These pieces will be our featured art works. An area for your traditional work will also be available.
CALL FOR ART: New Horizons is an exhibit for all YCAC artists. We invite you to bring in your art works on Monday morning, April 11, 2011 for this moving exhibit. The reception for this show will be Friday, April 15 from 5-7 PM.
So if you accept this challenge, get your creative juices going and enjoy a time of experimental merriment.
