Bloom Printmaking Residency

The 2023 Bloom Residency is the 3rd annual Artist-In-Residence opportunity at Chicago Printmakers Collaborative (CPC)! Awarded to a woman of color, one applicant will be chosen for this two week, project-based residency, culminating in the creation of a limited edition print with the support of CPC.

The 2023 cycle of the residency will take place between August 13th and August 27th. Applications for the 2023 Bloom Residency are due April 1, 2023. Recipients will be notified no later than May 15.


The 3rd annual 2023 Bloom Residency recipient will be provided with up to two weeks of 24/7 access to CPC’s professional print studio, a stipend of $500 to cover materials and assist with travel and lodging costs, and mentorship from CPC’s staff throughout the planning process. The 2023 cycle of the residency will take place between August 13th and August 27th and will culminate in the production of a limited edition, print-based work, to be published by CPC, and split between the artist and gallery. During this time, no events, exhibition openings, or classes will be taking place, allowing the resident ample uninterrupted working time in the studio alongside our staff, resident artists and studio members. All proceeds of the sale of CPC’s share of the edition will support future residency recipients! The CPC will promote the work of current and past Bloom Residency recipients on social media and on the CPC website.

This is a project based residency. It is a flexible and artist-driven opportunity, with each residency adapting to the unique goals of the individual artist. Women artists of color who are able to work independently on print processes in a printshop are encouraged to apply. Selected artists will submit a project proposal ahead of time which utilizes processes that they will be able to conduct independently. CPC will support the resident in ensuring the project is able to be successfully completed during the residency period and furthers the goals of the resident artist.
