100 West grants artists and writers residencies to create work in this historic building repurposed for studio space. Large scale, light filled rooms are provided alongside complete living accommodations and wood shop access to produce work in two or three dimension, installation, or writing. This residency experience is enriched by artist-made furniture and antiques in a building virtually unaltered since 1898. Original mill work, light fixtures, painted doors and walls now cracked and worn remain amid three years of preservation work, and effectively contrast contemporary modes of art making. 100W maintains a close connection with Dallas art culture less than an hour away from downtown Corsicana, where faded vestiges of the nineteenth century oil boom make it quintessentially Texas.
100W is pleased to offer the application below for artists and writers seeking both funded and non-funded studio residencies. Two fully funded, 6-week residencies are available for one artist and one writer between January and May 2016 is available with a $25 application fee. This application will be reviewed for multiple upcoming opportunities, including group exhibitions, and 100W Catalogue contributors.
Artists choosing to cover their residency costs themselves (outlined below) may apply at anytime, but are encouraged to submit before December 1, 2015 to secure their preferred time of residency in 2016.
