    The Starry Night Exposure program provides visual artists with the opportunity to show their work at large internationally attended art fairs in the US and abroad. They are currently accepting applications. There is no fee to apply. To learn more please visit http://starrynightexposure.com/about/

    Accepted Exposure Artists will receive professional training in our comprehensive 8 week online professional practices program, valued at $995. More info on this program is available at http://starrynightonline.com.

    Upon acceptance into the Exposure program, visual artists will have their work represented on the international stage during Art Basel Miami in December, 2017.

    The Exposure program features cutting edge contemporary work by emerging and established visual artists. Whether an artist is looking for gallery representation, is seeking to connect with collectors and dealers, or wanting to have a presence at a venue with international recognition, the Exposure program gives them the access to take this major step in their career – and fortify their CV substantially.

    Exhibiting with the Exposure program, with our non-exclusive representation agreement, gives our artists access to exclusive art fairs that are otherwise closed to individual artists.

    Now in its sixth year, the Exposure program will be partnering once again with the Aqua Art Fair to steward a portfolio of emerging, contemporary artists onto the international art scene at Art Basel Miami.

    The Chili Bowl Workspace Residency is a four- to six-week opportunity for functional ceramicists who want to participate in Women’s Studio Workshop’s biggest community event of the year while also creating their own work in our supportive and immersive environment. This particular residency will occur between November and December 2017.

    WSW invites applications from artists in any stage of their careers and aim to provide artists with the time and space to live and work creatively. While the workspace residencies are highly subsidized (the actual cost is $5,000/month), awardees pay $100/week and make 50 glazed or 100 bisqued bowls in exchange for on-campus housing and 24/7 studio access. Additionally, artists receive a thorough studio orientation. Artists are expected to work independently, although studio staff is always available to provide assistance. Artists are required to provide the expendable materials for their own project and can use studio materials for the Chili Bowl vessels.

    Each February, WSW sells over 900 bowls, mugs, and tumblers at our Chili Bowl Fiesta. Attendees can fill their new wares with chili donated by over 20 area restaurants. The vessels are made and decorated throughout the year by visiting artists, staff, interns, local potters, and our weekly clay study group. Funds raised at the Fiesta support WSW’s ceramics department.

    The Lighthouse Works’ primary purpose is to provide artists with the space and time, free from material concerns, to do their best creative work. We bring artists on fellowship to beautiful Fishers Island, where they are provided with room, board and studio space, giving them ample opportunity for quiet productivity in a serene, supportive environment.

    The Lighthouse Works accepts artists working in a wide range of media: fiction writers, poets, and writers of creative nonfiction; painters, sculptors, those working in video and installation, and other visual artists; musicians and composers. Artistic excellence is the primary criterion for acceptance as a Lighthouse Works fellow.

    Our organization’s efforts also support and enrich the Fishers Island community through a letterpress print shop, open studios, readings, concerts, and workshops for students and adults. By assisting artists at critical junctures in their careers, we aim to be a significant force in preserving and promoting the central role of the arts in our culture. We hope our work will also inspire the creation of other small businesses and organizations in our community, making Fishers Island an enclave of creativity and a cultural destination.

    Any serious artist at any stage of his or her career is welcome to apply through our online application system. Applicants are required to fill out an application form and to submit work samples and a statement of intent. While our staff reviews applications for completeness, a panel of professionals in the applicant’s artistic field evaluates each portfolio. Because the fellowship program accepts only 20 artists a year, our process is necessarily quite selective.

    Fellowships are six weeks in length and occur year-round. The Lighthouse Works provides fellows with housing, food, studio space, a $250 travel allowance and a stipend of $1,500 to defray the costs of shipping materials, the purchase of art supplies, and other expenses incurred in making artwork in a remote location; our belief is that no artist should have to spend money to accept the opportunity of a fellowship.

    grant_4The Pollock-Krasner Foundation’s dual criteria for grants are recognizable artistic merit and demonstrable financial need, whether professional, personal or both. The Foundation’s mission is to aid, internationally, those individuals who have worked as professional artists over a significant period of time.

    Application Guidelines
    The Foundation welcomes, throughout the year, applications from visual artists who are painters, sculptors and artists who work on paper, including printmakers. There are no deadlines. The Foundation encourages applications from artists who have genuine financial needs that are not necessarily catastrophic. Grants are intended for a one-year period of time. The Foundation will consider need on the part of an applicant for all legitimate expenditures relating to his or her professional work and personal living, including medical expenses. The size of the grant is determined by the individual circumstances of the artist. Professional exhibition history will be taken into consideration. Artists must be actively exhibiting their current work in professional artistic venues, such as gallery and museum spaces.

    Artists can apply to The Pollock-Krasner Foundation by submitting an online application. Requirements for consideration are the application form, a cover letter, a current resume including an exhibition record, and ten digital images of current work with a corresponding identification list. All applications will be promptly acknowledged and considered.

    Artists interested in applying to the Foundation should:

    1. Review the grant guidelines to ensure eligibility before you begin the application. If you have additional questions regarding eligibility that are not answered on these pages, please contact us.
    2. Read the FAQs.
    3. Begin an online application by following this link.

    The inaugural Artists & Climate Change Incubator, organized by The Arctic Cycle and hosted by The Lark, is open to artists and arts educators who want to engage or further their engagement with climate change through artistic practices. All disciplines are welcome, and individuals from traditionally underrepresented populations and communities are encouraged to attend. The Incubator is an inclusive environment that supports diverse perspectives. During this 5-day intensive, you will interact with guest speakers from fields such as environmental humanities, climate change communication, visual and performing arts, social justice, and environmental activism. Work sessions will provide tools to Reflect, Conceive, Innovate, Collaborate and Activate.

    Conversations with fellow artists will allow us to dig deep into challenges and concerns such as embracing activism without sacrificing personal vision and artistic integrity, letting go of the idea of “product,” and bringing the arts to non-traditional audiences. Together, we will explore: • Strategies to engage artistically with climate change • What the world may look like seen through a different lens • Ways to take the art out of traditional venues • How to develop collaborative projects with non-arts partners • How to activate audiences and create greater engagement with climate change issues All sessions will take place in the studio of The Lark at 311 West 43rd Street, New York, NY. Limited to 20 participants. Availability is on a first come, first serve basis.
