The GAR Project Grant is awarded on a nomination basis for artists to work on a project specifically for the GAR Gallery.

GAR is an artist residency program and community arts and gallery space located in Galveston, TX since 2011.  The GAR Gallery and courtyards are open to the public Tuesday – Saturday from 11am – 4pm. We host an average of four exhibitions a year in our main gallery space, with additional events in the gallery and our courtyards sprinkled throughout the year.

Due to the pandemic, we have temporarily suspended our gallery and public programming. We will resume again when we can safely gather once more. Stay tuned!

Galveston Artist Residency exists to promote and encourage the knowledge and appreciation of visual art by giving artists a gift of time and space for the development of their work. We provide studio space, accommodation and a stipend to three artists annually.

GAR accepts applications for residency grants once a year on an ‘open call’ basis. Recipients of GAR residency grants are chosen by a panel of art professionals, which changes from year to year.  For more information on applying to GAR, please visit our page on how to apply.

The GAR program is open to visual artists working in any medium. Recipients will be at a point in their career where they will benefit from a period of intense, focused studio time. Emerging artists, as well as mature established artists, are eligible.
