If you’re like me and using the holiday downtime to catch up on applications, here are a few artists’ opportunities I’d like to share.
I had a great time when I did this residency in 2013. I recommended it; read my wrap-up. The stipend is still one of the best I know of, and I’m sure this program has expanded since then. I’d especially encourage printmakers and artists whose work deals with water, tides, or natural light to look into this residency.
Tides Institute and Museum of Art StudioWorks Artist-in-Residence Program
Four-to-eight-week residency in a private studio with access to a modest printshop, plus accommodations.
They pay you $2,000–4,000 as a stipend to cover all expenses including travel (Eastport is remote—the easternmost point of the United States, actually).
$25 application fee.
Deadline: February 1, 2018
I had little prior paper-making experience, but I had a great time learning from Pulp & Deckle boss-lady Jenn Woodward, and making paper when I was a c3:resident in 2015.
c3: Papermaking Residency
One-month paper-making residency, workshop, technical assistance, group exhibition.
They pay you $250 stipend, but accommodations or travel are not included.
Deadline: January 21, 2018
I did a residency at Woodstock Byrdcliffe in 2011, back when its residency fee was only $300 (and before they let go of a really great, long-time residency manager; a position that is currently vacant, if you’re job-hunting). See photos.
I think it’s cool that, this year, they are offering fellowships for artists affected by natural disasters, though the application fee seems steep to me.
