Description of Organisation:

Sala752 is a family run project and the residency funtions in a building that belongs to the family. It was a common effort of the individual family members to restore the space for artists’ use. The actual residency is run by Basia and Marq Kearey. For Basia, an art manager, Sala752 is her late grandparents’ home, for Marq – the artist married to Basia, the space became a summer studio in 2018. This is when the idea of turning the previously unused space into an artist residency originated. Sala752 host short and long-term residencies offering international artists a live/work space under one roof. We welcome applications from fine art visual artists but also from writers and other creatives. The studio can also be used for events, workshops and overnight accommodation. We invite enquiries from those working in creative industries and those sharing the values of Sala752: creativity, artistic expression, collaboration, partnerships, community and wellbeing.

    Nearest Airport: Rzeszow Jasionka

    How to reach by plane: Rzeszow Jasionka airport is 3km away. We will intend to collect the artist from the airport. Alternatively, a taxi ride is an option. The airport bus goes directly to Rzeszow city centre so it is not a good option – if you take the bus from the airport you will then need to take another bus from Rzeszow city centre to reach Zaczernie. It is either 207 or 52 (both infrequent) There are a number of direct flights to Rzeszow from the UK: Stansted, Luton, East Midlands, Manchester and Bristol. From Ireland: Dublin. From Germany: Munich. There are also flights from Warsaw, Tel Aviv, Athens and New York. A wider selection of flights is available from Krakow Airport, 150km away (connected by motorway and also a train service).
    How to reach by train: If you arrive by train you need to get off at Rzeszow Glowny and then either take a taxi (7km) or a bus – 207 or 52 (both infrequent)
    How to reach by car: Zaczernie 752 is located just north of Rzeszow – it is conveniently located between the city and the A4 motorway which connects south west (German border) and south east (Ukrainian border) of Poland. Zaczernie is just 7km away from the centre of Rzeszow.
