artist in residence

The project artist in residence-st-urban offers young artists a free intensive and individual workshop and work programme over several weeks, all costs, as travelling and living are included, as well fully equipped studios and guestrooms.

The specially elaborated «Artist in Residence-» and «Art-Exchange Programmes» chiefly target international young artists. The very private ambience offers a lively experience of a new cultural and living environment in addition to the artistic training and perfectioning.
These experiences aim to have an enduring positive and creative influence on the future artistic creation of the young artists.Under the auspices of this program to support young artists, Heinz Aeschlimann passes on these techniques in various workshops. Summer 2003, a young sculptor, Drew Goerlitz, New York, finalist of the Student Award competition of ISC (International Sculpture Organisation, USA) was his guest for several weeks at his home and atelier. Very impressive sculptures were created. - In the meanwhile a large number of young artists have been guests at art-st-urban in Switzerland as Achterberg Luke, Birzer Bernadette, Carlson Margret, Desiderio Kristin, Ekwurtzel Sam, Goerlitz Drew, Griska Jordon, Malgorzata Wojdyko, Pelletterie Jonathan, Robert D Loring, Schenk Crystal, Stopyra Agnieszka.

art-st-urban supports the „Outstanding ­Student Award in Contemporary Sculpture“ of the ISC International Sculpture ­Organisation. Two young sculptors of the USA could qualify for a ­residency stay in St.Urban.
