Artist in Residence
Due to the closure of Hazelhurst in 2020 as a result of COVID-19, the impact of this unprecedented situation has necessitated some programming changes. Residencies that were scheduled for 2020 have been rescheduled for 2021.
As a result Hazelhurst will not be accepting applications for the artist in residence program this year (2020) and we apologise for any inconvenience.
Hazelhurst will be opening submissions for the 2022 artist in residence program from 1 March 2021. Submissions will close on 31 August 2021. We thank you for your understanding and support.
Hazelhurst’s Artist in Residence program has supported over 250 artists since it’s opening in 2000. Surrounded by native gardens, the original Hazelhurst cottage, built in 1946 by Ben and Hazel Broadhurst, is used as a unique artist in residence space for local, regional and interstate artists.
The studio residency offers a unique opportunity for artists to have time and space to undertake research, work on new projects, develop a site-specific work or expand on their artistic practice. The program allows artists to work and share their experiences with the community through scheduled talks and master classes, as well as providing visitors the opportunity to meet artists and observe their creative process.
The studio is a 2.7 x 5.4m space located on the ground floor of the Hazelhurst Cottage, with private doorway and driveway access. With an abundance of natural light and good ventilation, the studio is ideal for use of a range of mediums – from sculpture and ceramics to painting, aerosol or digital media. Facilities include: power points, large wash-up sink, heating, shared kitchen and bathroom, large wall space for 2D works, and high pitched ceiling (3.5m). Accommodation in the cottage is also available for regional and interstate artists, subject to availability.
