RESIDENCY PROGRAM The Luminary?s Residency Program is a part of our extensive interaction with the landscape of contemporary art. The Residency Program forms an integral element of our role as an originator of new works as well as providing unparalleled opportunities for artists to engage with the local community. EXHIBITIONS Our curatorial program presents 4-6 group exhibitions each season focused around a year-long theme. We showcase emerging local, national and international artists with an emphasis on cutting-edge contemporary practices. Our 4500 square foot gallery space is equipped with flexible lighting, video capabilities, and moveable walls for customized layouts for each exhibition. INSTALLATION SPACE Upstairs, we have a unique, dedicated installation space that often runs parallel to our main exhibitions. The 500 square foot space was formerly a chapel and has vaulted ceilings ideal for site-specific and immersive installations. We encourage artists to work within the space itself to create an engaging work that pushes the boundaries of what can traditionally be done in a gallery setting.
