|Event Details:||Hear from the 2022 applicants for studios at Torpedo Factory Art Center who have made it to Phase III. The 2022 application process is an annual competitive process to become a Resident Artist at the Art Center. This year’s applicants are scored by four highlight qualified jurors.
Phase I considered artistic merit and was judged blind, with jurors only viewing the art. Jurors looked for deliberately crafted artwork with an authentic and original point of view that reflects an awareness of current trends and aesthetics in the larger art world. It was worth a maximum 50 points. Applicants needed 33 points to advance.
Phase II was non-blind and considers applicants’ backgrounds. Jurors looked for artists who can explain their art and who want to engage and interact with the public through their work. They reviewed applicants’ career highlights and how they have marketed themselves or their work. It was worth a maximum of 25 points. Applicants needed a combined 50 points from Phases I and II to advance.
Phase III gives the jurors an opportunity to meet and interact with the applicants. This is the first time jurors are seeing the art work in-person to review it for quality. Jurors will consider the applicants’ ability to communicate about their artwork, with an eye toward their desire to positively engage with the public. It is worth a maximum of 25 points. Presentations will be open to the public.
