The Art Vault operates a highly successful artist in residence program, which attracts both emerging and established artists from all over Australia, as well as from around the world. Through the artist in residence program, The Art Vault aims to provide opportunities for artists to further their art practice in a stimulating, comfortable, creative and supportive environment. Artists are provided with a studio and self-contained apartment and are able to access the printmaking facilities if desired. Artists are often inspired by the unique, semi-arid landscape of the Mildura region and its surrounding National Parks. Past artists in residence have included Mike Parr, eX de Medici, Jason Benjamin, Jon Cattapan, Rick Amor and many others.
