The Salad Days Artist-in-Residence at Watershed Center for the Ceramic Arts is commissioned to produce 550 plates from earthenware clay for the Center’s annual Salad Days fundraising event – a community festival featuring locally sourced foods that draws hundreds of guests every year. 

Watershed Center for the Ceramic Arts is a small art residency center located in mid-coast Maine. During the summer and fall months, artists from across the country and beyond attend residencies at the Center that vary in length from 1 to 6 weeks. During this time, artists live and work alongside one another, sharing a large open-concept studio, enjoying communal meals, and living on campus in shared or private housing.  The Salad Days artist holds a unique position at the Center, with a focus on creating plates for Watershed's largest fundraiser of the year. 

The artist is selected by a jury in late winter prior to their residency and resides at Watershed from mid-May through September, producing plates for the following year’s Salad Days. During the residency, the Salad Days artist receives housing in a private room, all meals, a large studio, free materials and firings, and a stipend of $500.

Watershed provides opportunities for the Salad Days artist to sell work at events and to exhibit in group shows. Salad Days Artist plates gain broad exposure being featured both in Watershed print and online publications, and in local and regional press and advertisements. 

To apply, please answer the following questions and submit 10 images of your work. Please include images of plates you have made.
