How is the scholarship structured? What do the artists do while in residence?
While in residence at ECU, the artists spend eight days in the studio:
- exploring numerous contemporary printmaking techniques, taking advantage of an extensively equipped printmaking studio and experienced support staff to produce a body of work for exhibition on ECU campus at conclusion of the residency
- creating other work in their preferred medium, thus sharing their way of doing art with ECU staff and students. This work may also be included in the residency showing.
- observing students working in other art forms which may not be available in the Kimberley
- becoming part of the Centre’s community, sharing and learning through informal interaction with students and other people at the Art Centre
What happens to the work produced by the artists during the residency?
All work produced during the residency remains the property of the artists. A portfolio of work will be prepared and sent to the artists’ art centre.
At the end of their residency, the work produced is displayed at an informal showing on campus at ECU. Artists may also bring previous works to exhibit. The work may sold if the artists wish.
ECU and the Jimmy Pike Trust do not claim commission for work sold as a result of this or any subsequent exhibition.
Prints of the scholarship works are also kept at ECU for historical record. These may be used for future exhibitions or promotion of the Jimmy Pike Scholarship.
