The legacy of Art & History Museums – Maitland
can be found in its commitment to artists.
From its beginning in 1937, André Smith viewed The Research Studio as a place for artists to gather, collaborate, experiment and grow. That spirit is alive and well today as the A&H’s Maitland Art Center revisits its roots through a variety of programs designed to enrich the artistic community.
The A&H engages professional artists through two application-based residency programs and a quarterly professional development program:
Artist-in-Residence – Artists from around the country living and working at the A&H for a three, six or nine week residency.
AiR Applications will open again in July.
Artists-in-Action – Studio space for Central Florida artists
AiA Applications will open again in June.
Artist Critique & Conversation – Free quarterly reviews by seasoned art professionals
Free portfolio review by an established leader in fiber arts as a part of the A&H’s Art31 Artist Critique & Conversation. Share a portfolio selection (a body of work or samples of range of works) for viewing, professional review and public discussion.
