Trestle Gallery has two bi-annual residency opportunities, our Trestle Artist Residency and Visiting Artist Residency. Learn more below.


The Trestle Artist Residency is aimed at helping artists find a foothold in the art world while they develop a new body of work as a member of the Trestle Art Space community. Residents receive a 10% discount on TAS Membership while benefiting from 6 months of monthly advisory meetings. Residents are additionally afforded networking opportunities with established artists, critics, curators and other art world professionals.

There is an end of residency exhibition curated by rotating prominent guest curators - 2019’s guest curator is Eriola Pira.



The Visiting Artist Residency at Trestle Gallery allows artists to explore their practice and share their artistic experience with the Trestle Gallery and Art Space community.

Each cycle, one artist receives a free private studio membership for six months at Trestle Art Space. The Visiting Resident Artist leads monthly public critiques for the duration of the residency.

This residency is ideal for established artists with a serious practice looking for a space to make work while engaging with the Trestle Gallery & Art Space community.
