Space and Time Artist Residency
Deadline: April 28
The Space and Time Artist Residency at Guttenberg Arts provides artists with a $1,200.00 USD stipend to cover material, travel, and housing in conjunction with 24/7 shared access to a 4,500 sq. ft. professionally equipped workspace for the visual arts including printmaking, dark room and ceramics facilities for three months in Guttenberg, New Jersey (just across the Hudson River). Artists will also be given a group show at the end of the residency, as well as studio visits from accomplished professionals from the art world. Each artist is required to give a free public artist lecture or workshop towards the close of their three month residency and spend a minimum of 15 hours a week in studio. We highly recommend a site visit to our building if you are unsure of your commute or have questions regarding our facilities. Artists are selected by a blind jury of arts professionals on the merits of their work.
Guttenberg Arts is dedicated to promoting the visual arts by providing practicing artists with the space and time to develop their work while engaging with the public. Guttenberg Arts aims to increase opportunities for supported artists by expanding their community through artistic collaborations and promotion to curators and collectors in the tri-state area.
