Application Deadline Sept 1, 2018 for All 2019 Residencies.

100 West grants artists and writers residencies to create work in this historic building repurposed for studio space. Large scale, light flooded rooms are provided alongside complete living accommodations and wood shop access to produce work in two or three dimension, installation, or writing. This residency experience combines artist-made furniture with period pieces in a building virtually unaltered since the 1890s. Ongoing architectural preservation effectively backdrops contemporary studio practices. 100W maintains a close connection with Dallas culture less than an hour's drive from downtown Corsicana, where faded vestiges of the nineteenth century oil boom make it quintessentially Texas.

Artists and writers coming to Corsicana escape compact, urban centers to make work without distraction. It's quiet here. Long hours are clocked in the studio with a focus stimulated by small-town atmosphere and big, open windows. 100W hosts three to four residents simultaneously with private work-live studios balanced with a shared kitchen, dining hall and rooftop.

Fully-funded, partially-funded, and non-funded studio residencies are available alongside local grants.

Residency durations are customizable from 2 weeks to 2 months, although a minimum of 1 month is recommended to reach studio rhythm and produce in-depth work.

Program details and applications for the 100W Residency and Grants can be found at www.100westcorsicana.com

Location

Corsicana, Texas: United States

Corsicana is a historic oil town fifty miles south of Dallas, Texas on the highway to Houston. The three-story residency building was originally constructed as an Odd Fellows Lodge in the 1890s and stands virtually untouched save for preservation work and modern amenities. 100W is in downtown Corsicana, in walking distance to diners, coffee shops, hardware stores and most daily needs. Ranches, locomotive and industrial spaces, and an intimate downtown converge near the intersection of this residency.
