Sr. Frandrup Artist Residency

The Sister Dennis Artist Residency offers artists the opportunity to engage with their studio practice and with the community of CSBSJU in a six-week residential program.  This is a family friendly residency with no application or residency fees. Residents will give a public artist lecture, provide studio visits with senior art majors, and present the work of the residency in an Open Studio Reception at the end of the residency.

Artist Studio

Visiting artists will be able to work in a spacious loft studio at the Art Center, Saint John’s University, where they will have access to art studio classrooms and labs for printmaking, video, sculpture, and photography. The 918 sq. ft. studio has a high ceiling, excellent natural lighting, movable furnishings for working and storage, adjustable spotlights, a sitting area, a sink, wi-fi and Internet access, restrooms nearby, and 24/7 access. A 4.8' x 6.6' barn door into the adjacent gallery does permit transporting larger work into the space by a portable lift, but because the studio is upstairs and otherwise accessible only by a spiral staircase, there is limited access.
