Artist in Residence (AIR) features Alaskan and National artists at work in the gallery for artist residencies of varying lengths, from one week to two months. Bunnell’s Artist in Residence program was created with support from Rasmuson Foundation and US Artists, and continued with support from the Homer Foundation, ArtPlace America and the National Endowment for the Arts. It is also supported by private donors, foundation grants, and application fees.

Visiting artists are provided with a studio, lodging and a stipend. In return, they are asked to develop new work, offer public performances or talks and engage the local community in participatory workshops. Programs vary in scope, funding and intention. Please explore the residency formats below.
