About the AIRs Program
For over 15 years, the Craft Alliance Artist-in-Residence program has given early-career artists engaging with craft the space and professional support to build their practice through teaching opportunities, studio access, material, and professional development stipends, and exhibition and programming opportunities. For the past 50 years, Craft Alliance has been a center for craft education in the St. Louis region, providing adult and youth education in 6 studio areas, exhibiting national and regional craft artists, and creating accessible programs for local schools. Craft Alliance invites up to three artists to participate in an 11-month program that begins in September and ends in July. Artists share a private studio and have access to Craft Alliance's six main studio areas outside of class; receive a monthly materials stipend and professional development reimbursement fund; tuition waivers for workshops per session; teaching and other professional development opportunities; and a culminating group exhibition in Craft Alliance Staenberg Gallery. Craft Alliance is pleased to announce the 2022-2023 Artists-In-Residence: Mee Jay and Marina Peng.
Support for the Artists-In-Residence Program comes from The Whitaker Foundation
