The Windgate ITE Residency Program is a collegial experience in which the resident fellows explore new work through research, exploration, and collaboration. The Center for Art in Wood awards for seven prestigious fellowships for the annual Windgate ITE Residency Program. The program selects from an international pool of applicants, one photojournalist, one scholar/educator, and five artists who work either solely in wood or who work with wood in combination with other materials. Applicants must exhibit proficiency in techniques in woodworking as well as exhibiting creativity in design in their work. Their participation in this residency will be as a peer with the other residents and will be included in the exhibition at the conclusion of the residency.
