AX Emerging Artist in Residence – Ceramics

AX is seeking proposals for our 2023 residency lineup. Please submit your application for consideration.


The AX Emerging Artist One-Month Residency – Ceramics in Sussex, NB is a short-term paid residency designed to support Canadian artists who have finished their formal training or show equivalent experience and are now looking to take the next steps forward in their artistic careers. The emerging artist will have access to our fully equipped ceramics centre, including brand new ConeArt Computer kilns (2), a Shimpo pottery wheel, slab roller, work table and their own private studio space.

During the residency, the artist will have access to AX’s mentorship network and will be working closely with AX’s Ceramics Centre Coordinator, Alana Wilson, to ensure they have a successful residency. The purpose of this short-term residency is to promote emerging artists in the field of ceramics, with a specific focus on helping jump-start the careers of ceramics artists.

Emerging artists are expected to complete a proposed project during the residency time frame. Following the residency this project will be featured in a solo virtual exhibition hosted on the AX website.

To submit an application, follow the instructions here: Emerging Artist One Month Residency Ceramics Application

Please note: emerging artists must be between the age of 18 and 35.
