Trestle Gallery Visiting Artist Residency
Deadline: October 1
This residency is aimed at helping artists find a foothold in the art world while they develop a new body of work as an Trestle Art Space Member. Residents receive a 10% discount on the TAS Membership while getting additional support of 6 months advisory with Jason Stopa or Christina Kelly. Residents are also given the opportunity to exhibit their work at Trestle. Participants receive all benefits of a Trestle Art Space Membership as well as monthly group advisory meetings which include critiques, guest speakers, and studio visits. By participating in this program artists take advantage of networking and community building opportunities in addition to having access to low-cost studio space. The residents give back to the community and get a peek into the administrative end of the art world by volunteering in the gallery or studio for three hours per month. All artists are invited to apply. Applications are accepted twice each year.
Part of the Trestle Artist Residency program is the option to participate in an end of year Residency Exhibition with rotating prominent guest curators. The guest curator for the 2018 residency cycle will be Carmen Hermo (2019 guest curator to be determined), an assistant curator at the Brooklyn Museum. Incoming residents will have the opportunity to meet with her and show her their work before the exhibition.
Who this residency is ideal for:
1. Artists developing a new body of work
2. Artists entering or re-entering the art world
3. Artists who have graduated with a BFA or MFA within the past two years (note: this residency is open to all artists, Bachelors/Masters degrees are not required).
Visiting Artist Residency: The Visiting Artist Residency allows artists to explore their practice and share their artistic experience with the Brooklyn Art Space and Trestle community. Each cycle, one artist receives free Brooklyn Art Space Semi-Private studio membership for six months. The Visiting Resident Artist leads one art talk and one critique or workshop during the residency.
Who this residency is ideal for: Established artists who would like to have a space to make work, while interacting with the Trestle & BAS community.
