Kent Harrison Arts Council is a not for profit organization, nurturing and supporting local arts and culture in the region for over 40 years. The arts council operates the Ranger Station Art Gallery in Harrison Hot Springs, BC and is supported by the BC Arts Council. We are currently seeking writers or visual artists for a one year artist residency. The Gallery and artist residence are located on the shore of beautiful Harrison Lake, approximately 100 kilometres east of Vancouver.

The annual residency provides a spacious, unfurnished, 2 bedroom suite with adjoining studio space on the second floor of the Ranger Station Art Gallery. In exchange for this space the Artist in Residence will be expected to devote an average of ten hours per week to the operation of the Arts Council and the Ranger Station Art Gallery. The majority of this time will be spent working in the Gallery on Saturdays, Sundays and holiday Mondays from 12:00 pm to 4:00 pm. Visual artists will present a month-long art exhibit of their work in the Gallery; writers will host two events presenting their work. The Artist in Residence will also organize two public outreach programs or workshops. The Artist in Residence is responsible for monthly utility costs of the residence and studio.
