Clifford Gouldson Lawyers is now seeking submissions from local artists for its highly regarded Artist-in-Residence Program (AiR).
After the successful 2021 AiR, the program will again offer one local artist the opportunity to work in, and develop a profile with, the Toowoomba business community.
For the successful artist the program offers a workspace within Clifford Gouldson’s office, a weekly stipend over 8 weeks and an end of residency launch event with the firm’s clients and contacts.
Clifford Gouldson Director Amanda Tolson said the previous Artist-in-Residence Programs were a wonderful experience for everyone involved and with so much of the arts sector having suffered since Covid it’s a privilege to be able to offer this program to the local arts community.
“As well as the opportunity this Program represents for the artist it also provides tremendous benefits to our staff and our clients and contacts,” she said.
“Working long hours in an office many business people have little or no contact with the many talented artists in the Toowoomba community.”
“With this Program in the past our team have gained an insight into how professional artists work and had the opportunity to explore different art mediums through a short workshop with the artist and seeing the artist create their art work.”
“I’m sure everyone in the office enjoyed the time they spent with our previous resident artists, Maryika Welter, Christene Just, Laura Crane and LeAnne Vincent, and their commitment to working with us and connecting with the wider business community through the Program was greatly appreciated,” she said.
Applications for the AiR Program close at 10am on Monday 1 August 2022.
