Artist-in-residence at Rayko Photo Center

The Artist-in-Residence program
Our Residence Program was developed to continue our support and education of photographers working and living in the Bay Area. Through the program, photographers will receive a $1250 credit and one free class, or $1500 credit and no class, to use however they choose at RayKo’s professional photographic center. The program will begin at the start of each workshop semester, so every opportunity is utilized to learn through the classes & workshops, and be mentored by artists.

The timeframe for the development of artwork, printing, and mentoring process is three months. Artists will gain hands on experience in the entire process of creating work, from conceptualizing, printing, framing, and hanging. Work produced in the program, will culminate in a show in our side gallery. Up to three final prints of the gallery’s choice will be donated to RayKo’s print collection.

Artists will check in with the Gallery Director for review and feedback sessions. Staff mentoring is also available to assist in the artistic development of residents. Artists and mentors will be matched on a case-by-case basis based on availability of mentors, and focus of the artists work.
