We are excited to partner with mosaicists Rochelle Schueler and Lynn Adamo, who will curate and facilitate the activities of a two-week-long residency for experienced mosaic artists.
Experienced mosaic artists are invited to apply to assist in the completion of a mosaic project started in 2020 by the collaborative artist team of Rochelle Schueler and Lynn Adamo. Schueler and Adamo have finished fabricating the first three of seven panels designed for a mosaic installation at PMRCAA. As a model for creativity and collaboration, selected artists will live and work together on-site at PMRCAA, and will receive a stipend for their participation. This mosaic project will be a permanent part of the PMRCAA collection and will promote the medium of contemporary mosaic art.
All materials will be provided, including surplus high-fired ceramic tiles from Kibak Tile for re-use in the mosaic project.
The two-week mosaic residency will take place May 31 – June 15, 2022. Selected artists will have the option to extend their residency two additional weeks (June 16 – 28, 2022) for a self-directed residency.
Preferred qualifications for applicants:
- Minimum of experience working on at least 2 large-scale exterior tile mural projects
- Ability to lift up to 25 lbs.
- Ability to use a contractor’s tile saw and tile nippers
- Familiarity with using thinset mortar as adhesive
- Provide your own transportation to Sisters, Oregon.
How to Apply
Interested applicants can apply through PMRCAA’s 2022 Residency program application (open August 16 – October 25, 2021). Once logged in, follow the instructions specified for mosaic residency applicants. Selected artists will be notified in January 2022.
