Adam Gruning, Graduate Residency Artist, 2012 said:
"I would definitely recommend the residency to other artists looking for opportunities after University. The residency offers the valuable debut solo show opportunity artists dream of as well as a supportive artist community that makes the transition from University to practicing artist positive, productive and enjoyable."

Turning Point West Midlands has been busy rolling out its TPWM Projects with its partner lead organisations: Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery, New Art Gallery Walsall, The National Trust, New Library Birmingham, Worcester University, Eastside Projects, Grand Union, and Writing West Midlands.
In partnership with TPWM, the National Trust have set up a new Artist Residency opportunity at Dudmaston Hall. The recipient will be announced on the TPWM website soon.
The New Art Gallery Walsall is delighted to announce that Birmingham-based artist Pak-Keung Wan has been selected for a 6-week practical studio residency (12 November-22 December 2012), which has been offered in partnership with Turning Point West Midlands.
Wan will use the residency to develop Lune, an ongoing series of painstaking pencil drawings inspired by a NASA publication detailing all 11,898 solar eclipses over a 5000 year period. Time will be given over to animating these drawings through daily projections onto the walls and surfaces of the studio and via static electronic screens within the space.
The selected artist articulated a clear and original vision for the residency, which will see the studio collapsed into a site for production, presentation and discourse around the work and the NASA material at its source.
Please note that the Gallery is unable to offer individual feedback to applicants in connection with this artist development opportunity.

Library of Birmingham artist in residence Faye Claridge is contributing to an exhibition at Towner Art Gallery in Eastbourne entitled Collective Observations: Folklore & Photography from Benjamin Stone to Flickr.
Faye Claridge's work is made in response to the Sir Benjamin Stone collection as part of the residency, which is supported by Turning Point West Midlands.
Since 1897, when Sir Benjamin Stone established the National Photographic Record Association (NPRA), photographers have had a fascination with the rites and rituals of Britain. Photography and folklore practice have a complimentary relationship – the medium of photography captures the ephemeral moment. Despite existing in the here and now, both photography and folklore are an act of remembrance. Photographs act as a repository of these fleeting happenings, and constitute an artefact of folklore in themselves.
Exhibition runs: 13 October 2012 - 6 January 2013.
