No Boundaries International Art Colony, Bald Head Island, North Carolina USA
The colony is always the first two weeks in November (starting the 1st Friday). International applications must be submitted by March 31st of the colony year. Domestic applications must be submitted by May 15th of the colony year.
The No Boundaries International Art Colony takes place on beautiful Bald Head Island, a barrier island on the southernmost coast of North Carolina. Twelve doemstic and international artists reside and work in a communal setting in the three historic cottages that make up Captain Charlies Station.
Once participating artists arrive in Wilmington, North Carolina, No Boundaries, Inc. provides housing, ground transportation, and food. International artists also receive a package of art supplies. Each attending artist contributes two completed works of art to No Boundaries Inc. and additional works may be selected to remain as part of the exhibition. The Colony culminates in an exhibition of artwork from the attending artists at the Wilma W. Daniels Gallery on the campus of Cape Fear Community College.
No Boundaries also provides outreach opportunities for artists to participate in our community through Acme Arts Studio, UNCW Art Department, CFCC Art Department, and DREAMS of Wilmington.
