Venice Art Project
With the Patronage of the Veneto Region and the City of Venice, the Venice Printmaking Studio has established the Venice Art Project. The mission of this project is to contribute a broad cultural creative presence to the city of Venice by hosting international artists working and exhibiting in Venice, for the International Glass Biennial Exhibition.
Thank you for your interest in being a part of this international artistic project. Each accepted artist will spend three weeks in Venice, experiencing the city through painting, drawing, watercolour, printmaking, collage, or other graphic work. One chosen piece of each artist’s work will then be translated into a work of glass in collaboration with the glassmaster of Scuola del Vetro di Murano. During your stay you will be provided with accommodation in the Venice Art Project’s residency apartment.
You will have at your disposal a studio space set up according to the technique you will use, along with all materials necessary to realize the work. The maximum dimension of the works will be 80 x 100 cm (approx. 2.6 feet by 3 feet). All the works created will remain as property of the artist, including the translated glass-works, to be shipped to you at the end of the exhibition.
We are in the process of securing the famous historical environment of the Venice Arsenale to host The International Glass Biennial Exhibition opening in May 2015 at the Arsenale di Venezia. The exhibition will be limited to 40 artists. The artists will be invited in groups of five for three weeks starting immediately, April 23rd, 2014.

Artist’s travel expenses, meals, and shipping costs for artwork are not provided.
