We welcome artists from all over the world, inviting them to take up residencies at the Cultural Center, integrate into the community and find the inspiration they need in the waves, landscapes and sunsets of Chacala.
Artist residencies are very exciting and offer a unique opportunity to meet and work with colleagues, learn new techniques and develop as an artist. ChacalArt is unique and an excellent option to boost your creativity, in a friendly Mexican fishing village.
Over the course of three artist residencies at Chacala, many artists have contributed their talents and skills to create more than 50 works of art.
Artists have come from Mexico, the United States, Canada and France. The artist community has expressed appreciation for the opportunity to share techniques and practices, enhancing their own approach to their work. They share stories of mentoring and education, as well as exhibitions and gallery shows along the way. Everyone benefits from this community of learning and production.
In addition, many of the resident artists have had the opportunity to share their art and techniques with adults and children from Chacala, as well as neighboring villages, through school workshops in drawing, printmaking and painting.
A vital focus of our residencies is community involvement. Artists are encouraged to give back to the region by giving workshops or exhibitions to the public about their work.
Art education is highly absent from school curricula in our area. If you are an artist planning to participate in a ChacalArt residency, consider preparing a simple and inspiring workshop for children, teens, adults or seniors.
Chacala is a port that inspires! Its beautiful waves, wonderful landscapes and breathtaking sunsets will give you the inspiration you need to create.
During your residency we expect you to conduct workshops and exhibitions to children in the community and the general public about your work.
Stay in our cultural suites at an affordable cost that will allow you to pay for your stay with the workshops to the community and the works sold in the gallery.
