Artscape Gibraltar Point

Artscape Gibraltar Point opened in 1999. This four-season arts and cultural facility is housed in a former school surrounded by 46 acres of parkland. Over the years Artscape Gibraltar Point has hosted over 1,000 artists both local and international, who have taken advantage of the facility’s quiet and natural setting to focus on their practices and projects through short-term residencies and long-term studio rentals.

Artscape Gibraltar Point hosts two types of artist residencies: self-directed, and programmed. 

  1. Self-directed residencies are short-term studio and overnight accommodations for artists and creative types who want to focus on their work in a distraction-free environment. This sort of residency is also ideal for individuals conducting research, working to meet a deadline, collaborating with others, or who require temporary workspace. 
  2. Programmed residencies bring together up to 18 artists to work around a specific theme with the help of a facilitator/curator. Participants explore new modes of thought in a variety of collaborative settings including studio work, formal lectures, group discussions and outdoor retreats. Programmed residencies encourage dialogue and discovery between disparate practices, and establish new connections. Artists can apply to take part in a thematic/programmed residency when opportunities are available.
