For most of its existence, AIR Studio Paducah 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, residents hail from all over the U.S. and Canada.

AIR Studio Paducah 2020 Artist Benefits

The residency affords the artist time and space for focused, independent work, the 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. The residency features a storefront gallery/ multi-purpose space that can be used for exhibitions or presentations during the residency. Opportunities to muse or collaborate with other artists in the Paducah community are often available.

“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.”

About AIR Studio Paducah

AIR Studio Paducah, now in its 15th year as an artist residency program, is situated in the heart of the Lower Town Arts District, Paducah, Kentucky. Since 2004, creatives from around the country and abroad have passed through residency doors to make the most of the space with a stretch of undistracted time as envisioned by founder Alonzo Davis, himself an artist.

Drawn to Paducah by the Artist Relocation Program, Davis initially considered Lower Town as the location for a personal studio/ retreat. Inspired by working retreat experiences in California, Costa Rica, Connecticut, Wyoming, Colorado, and Virginia, Davis decided to establish an artist residency program. Not only would visiting artists benefit, but also interaction with a changing influx of creatives from outside could lend an additional dynamic to the evolving Lower Town community. An active residency program would heighten arts district visibility in the world of artist’s communities internationally.
