The Vaults Artist Studio Residency Program 
Application Deadline: July 20, 2020 at 11:59pm EST

Application Fee: $45, includes an annual SEABA Artist Membership or free to current SEABA Members (A limited amount of Membership Scholarships are available.) 

The South End Arts + Business Association (SEABA), in partnership with Unsworth Properties, is pleased to offer an ongoing annual residency program for artists at The Vaults, located in the heart of the South End Arts District in Burlington, Vermont.

The Vaults Artist Studio Residency Program will allow one artist access to a private art studio to use, free of charge for one year, to create a new body of work or to further their creative practice.

Located at 28 Howard Street in Burlington, The Vaults is a three story new construction that hosts a number of artist studios and creative businesses, along with the offices of SEABA and Unsworth Properties. The residency program features a private 325 square foot artist studio on the first floor with a full garage bay door facing a common alleyway that leads to a complex of buildings that also house an array of artist spaces.

SEABA created the designation of the ‘South End Arts District’ due to the high concentration of creative businesses and artist studios within the South End of Burlington along the Pine Street Corridor. The collaboration with Unsworth Properties is a unique opportunity to give back to the community that we all hold so dear.

James Unsworth states, “Unsworth Properties is thrilled to offer this space to help foster the arts community in the South End…Burlington…Vermont and beyond. In this incredibly difficult time, art has an exceptionally important role. Creative thinking is key to moving our nation and human race forward.”

Applications are open to all visual artists, 18 years or older, living in the United States. The application fee is $45 and includes a one year artist membership to SEABA and in turn to the South End Art Hop and our annual art curation program. Free to apply for current members. There are also scholarships available for membership, artists may email for more information.

The SEABA Board of Directors and a representative of Unsworth Properties will review applications and select a winner after the July 20, 2020 deadline, with a move in date for the artist in August. SEABA will work closely with the artist to guide them into participating in First Friday Art Walks, the South End Art Hop, and a reception open to the public at the end of the residency. We are excited to launch this program and to keep it going for years to come!
