2022

Liquitex Residency Program

Liquitex is pleased to announce the launch of the 2022 artists’ residency series at Manufacturers Village in East Orange, NJ. This is a unique opportunity for artists to work in a private studio space with Liquitex materials, while immersed among a diverse community of over 50 creative makers. Artists are invited to just imagine how far their creativity can go with space, materials, and the freedom and time to express themselves, gain knowledge and make connections in a vibrant collective of artists.

There will be four residencies over the course of 2022: two ‘Just Imagine’ residencies focusing on the Liquitex Professional Range, one Student Residency, and one Liquitex Basics Research Residency.
