The Department of Art and Art History at the University of California, Davis is pleased to invite applications for two Teaching Artists in Residence in The Manetti Shrem California Studio.  We encourage artists to apply who work in all disciplines, traditional or non-traditional, especially those who focus on drawing, painting, print and their expanded practices. The program welcomes artists who conduct original research and pursue unique artistic inquiries. We support artists who seek to incorporate the vast resources of the university into the classroom. Visiting artists teach an upper division art studio class and a graduate seminar, deliver a public lecture, and further their creative work and/or research while on campus.

Jan Shrem and Maria Manetti Shrem’s visionary gift provides funding for salary and benefits, as well as travel and academic creative enrichment funds. Visiting artists are given a studio space and the opportunity to develop further their art practice in the community of students, other visiting artists and faculty members.

UC Davis Art Studio’s mission is to cultivate curiosity and sustain the courage to embrace the unknown through art. We are committed to creating an equitable, hospitable and inclusive educational environment, and candidates with diverse viewpoints, backgrounds and experiences are encouraged to apply.

Applicants must have a minimum of three years teaching experience at the university level. Candidates are required to have an MFA or equivalent professional experience, a well-developed portfolio in their area of specialization, and an exhibition record that is national and/or international in scope. They should be conversant in contemporary art issues and studio practices, and enthusiastic about teaching in a diverse, multicultural setting.

Applicants are asked to submit a professional resume, a cover letter of interest in teaching at UC Davis, samples of work, a creative/research statement, a teaching statement and a statement of contributions to diversity, equity and inclusion. It should also include an outline of an undergraduate course and a graduate seminar, and three professional references. References will only be contacted with advanced candidacy.
