GONE RESIDENCY is a non-profit artist-in-residence program based in the Funk Zone Arts District in Santa Barbara, California. The residency has it's home at GONE GALLERY, which for a decade has been at the forefront of avante-garde, experimental art in Santa Barbara.

GONE RESIDENCY is an organization dedicated to developing an environment where artists of any medium, means, or identity can push their artistic practice in new directions, and benefit from engaging with and challenging the Santa Barbara community.

GONE RESIDENCY is committed to artistic freedom and experimentation. Our goal is to select artists from around the world who embody in their attitude and work the principles of freedom, experiment, art activism, outliers, and a commitment to reinvention, repurpose, and intellectual risk-taking.

GONE RESIDENCY conducts bi-annual residencies each Spring and Fall at GONE GALLERY in Santa Barbara, Ca. Events and exhibitions conducted during the residency, including open studio visits, artist talks, demos, group and single-artist shows and other events will be free to the general public.
