Lower East Side Printshop Keyholder Residency

Keyholder Residency
Deadline: March 1

Lower East Side Print Shop
New York, NY

Lower East Side Printshop, NY, offers emerging artists FREE year-long studio residencies to develop new work and foster their artistic careers. The residencies are available from April 1, 2019 through March 31, 2020. Printmaking facilities are available for intaglio, relief, monotype, waterbased screenprinting, digital processes, and other techniques that employ the tools at hand.

Keyholders work independently in the Printshop’s shared Artists’ Studio and have access to a vibrant community of peers. Artists from all disciplines are eligible to apply; printmaking skills are not required, but some familiarity with the medium is recommended.

Participation is limited and competitive. Applications are evaluated by a panel of seasoned artists, curators, and art professionals based on the quality of submitted artwork. Artists currently without a studio space are encouraged to apply.

Keyholder Residency includes:

  • 24/7, one-year access to a shared studio with printmaking facilities

  • $1,000 stipend

  • One free printmaking class at the Printshop

  • Free career development workshops and salons

  • Group exhibition opportunities

  • Consultation hours with Printshop printers
