Program Description:

Artscape Gibraltar Point is seeking project proposals from artists working in all media for the Winter Island Artist-In-Residence program for 2018.

Now in its third year, Winter Island is a unique, juried, artist-in-residence program aimed at emerging, mid-career and, established artists, hosted at Artscape Gibraltar Point, an artist residency located on the picturesque Toronto Islands.

Winter Island recognizes four artists annually who have demonstrated a strong and unique artistic voice while working in Canada’s visual arts community and provides them with a month of distraction-free studio time to create and/or develop a new and exciting work, or body of work that seeks to engage with and/or activate the artist community at Artscape Gibraltar Point and the Toronto Islands.

Selected artists will have the opportunity to present these works/projects to the public as a part of a Winter Island Group Exhibition to take place at the conclusion of the residency series at Artscape Youngplace Hallway Galleries, Vitrines and, select Flex studios, in late May/Early June 2018.
