Aubrey Baer Artist Residency

galleryHOMELAND’s Aubrey Baer Artist Residency provides international and national visual artists the opportunity to live, work, and exhibit in Portland’s vibrant art community. Under artist and professor Harrell Fletcher at Portland State University, galleryHOMELAND co-founder Paige Saez began an artist’s residency program. She began inviting artists and art-related groups to come live and create work for one month in Portland.

Now under the direction of Paul Middendorf, the Artist Residency continues to bring contemporary artists to Portland. Residents receive room and board, a stipend, and an exhibition of their work. Through participation in lectures, panel discussions, and exhibition events, participants are introduced to Portland’s thriving art world. galleryHOMELAND provides participants the opportunity to develop valuable relationships with Portland curators, gallerists, critics, and artists as well as introducing them to our unique regional perspective.

To date galleryHOMELAND has brought six artists into Portland with 2008 marking the first international resident to participate. The Artist Residency continues to expand its scope; in 2009 galleryHOMELAND will begin exporting Portland artists to reside in other cities and create work.
