Click here for the application / registration

Deadline: Ongoing

A.I.R. Studio is for serious artists who want a creative respite from their day-to-day environment and offers an ideal setting for those on sabbatical or who want a focused period of time to start or complete a body of work. The residency affords the artist time and space for focused, independent work, development of new ideas, and experimentation. Visits to area cultural centers, galleries, and performance venues as well as short trips to regional arts facilities can open up a range of networking possibilities. A.I.R. Studio features a storefront multi-purpose display space that can be used for exhibitions or presentations during the residency.

Resident Profile

For most of its existence, A.I.R. Studio residents have been visual and fiber artists, a few photographers, and a scattering of creatives in other disciplines. The application process has since expanded and opened up to writers, architects, composers, and improvisational choreographers. Geographically, A.I.R. Studio residents hail from all over the United States and Canada.

Selection Process

A.I.R. Studio Paducah conducts a competitive selection process. Applications are peer-reviewed on a basis of the quality of past work and the applicant’s potential to have a productive residency. Applicants must be at least 21 years old. Collaborative pairs and couples are welcome.

Testimonials

“I embrace this day and all the levels of awareness that have entered my consciousness amidst depths of sadness and loss. Sitting on a bench overlooking the Ohio River, a gentle breeze brings comfort to my body and I watch what appears to be, calm, lightly fluttering wings on the surface of the water. This is just what I need. The great expanse in front of me is a gentle reminder that there is a great deal beyond this place where I sit; more to experience and endless opportunities to create a greater life of fulfillment beyond this moment.” – Helen Elliott, GA

“The experience really jumped-started me into a new path with my work. The residency also allowed for some reflection on my life, my pursuit of the arts, and acted almost as a spiritual retreat.” – Dan Annarino, IN

“Being at Paducah A.I.R. was a spectacular enterprise for me. Having the studio there last February was life changing and I have yearned for a studio space ever since. On another note, I am showing the large work I created there for the first time opening today. Seeing the work up at the Manhattan Beach Art Center tonight will be a moving reminder of that beautiful experience.” – June Edmonds, CA

About A.I.R. Studio Paducah

The A.I.R. Studio and efficiency apartment is located in the heart of the Paducah’s Lower Town Arts District and six blocks away from the Ohio River. As a resident in this setting you have the flexibility of making art in small town peace and quiet or engaging with the artist community.
