SlowAIR: Artist In Residence Program

Elliot Helms House

The two photographers who are chosen for the Artist in Residence program will spend a week at the Elliot Helms House in Pike County at a mutually agreed-on date. There are two suites with private bath with work areas and beautiful views. Lodging, some meals, and an opportunity to exhibit your work at SlowExposures will be provided. It’s a chance to pursue projects and take risks free from everyday demands.
The SlowAIR purpose is to encourage the creative growth of photographers who are interested in exploring an aspect of the contemporary rural South through their work. Since its inception 18 years ago, SlowExposures has been invested in supporting the use of this medium to illuminate, challenge, and record the story of this region.

Responsibilities of Artists:
Each artist is asked to donate a print of an image of their choice–this will be displayed and auctioned off at the SlowExposures.
Residents are responsible for transportation and supplies as well as meals that are not scheduled with SlowExposures members.
