    Wassaic Project recognizes that artists who have families often opt-out of peer community building for practical reasons: residencies don’t often take children, events happen late at night, childcare is expensive.  Bowie, Jeff and Eve (Wassaic co-founders) have kids; they’re all artists.  They have families that they want to be with and not away from.  And they ALSO want to connect with other artist peer groups and build community.  While we can’t solve all these problems at once (yet!), we have solved the first one:  we now offer Family Residencies from November – April from 1 to 8 weeks in length.

    HOW TO APPLY:

    We accept proposals for 1 to 8 weeks from November through April, and will work with each family to accommodate their specific needs.  Each Family will be provided with a private house complete with a kitchen, living room, dining room, bathroom, and three bedrooms.  For more information, click here.

    Residents are selected by a review committee composed of the board of directors and professionals in the field. They will be selected based on the quality of their work, commitment to their practice, and ability to interact positively with the community at large.

    Notification of acceptance will be given within 60 days of the application due date. Accepted applicants will have 7 days to commit to attending the residency. After confirmation, resident’s security deposit and the first month’s fee are due.

    http://wassaicartistresidency.org/apply/family-application/

    STUDIOS + HOUSING:

    The winter studios are located in the first and second floors of the Old Hotel in Maxon Mills.  Residents will receive an adaptable raw studio that is roughly 100 square feet. Artists will have 24 hour access to their studio.  Artists also have access to the residency’s woodshop, located on the first floor of Maxon Mills. They also have the possibility to expand on large scale projects within the seven floors of Maxon Mills.

    Residents are required to bring everything they need for their creative practice. Each studio is provided with a table, chair and limited lighting. They do not provide any art materials.

    The Wassaic House Hotel, built in the 1850s by Noah Gridley of Noah Gridley and Son Ironworks, was a direct product of the railroad and functioned as a leisure location where upper class railroad passengers could rest, dine, and socialize. The hotel abuts the Maxon Mills and now serves as our winter residency studio space.

    FEES:

    In an effort to serve and support emerging artists, they are able to subsidize residencies for all individual artists who do not have other forms of support. Thanks to the generous support of donors and grants, the fee for the Family residency is $900 per month, not including additional fees.  They are open to shorter stays at a prorated rate.

    Gallery Aferro believes that persistent dedication to craft and creative output is a formula for success as an artist, but sometimes life gets in the way of artistic productivity. This issue is particularly visible in the case of artists who are also parents. Many of our responsibilities and experiences define our time and creative output. Gallery Aferro is invested in uplifting artists to help them make art now, not later, and encouraging an environment where they can make work as large and complex as the vision of the artist. With the help of funding from the Sustainable Arts Foundation, Gallery Aferro offers this open call to all artists that are parents* and would like to continue their creative practice in an engaged and energized studio residency in downtown Newark, NJ. The studio will be provided to the parent-artist for 6 months at no cost and will come with a $1000 stipend given at the beginning of the 6-month rotation. The stipend and free studio will facilitate the parent-artist in coordinating effective time and energy to be spent in their studios.

    *The Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines a “Parent” simply as “a person who is a father or mother” -or- “a person who has a child”, and although that may be a nice, tidy definition, we think it oversimplifies the term. A “Parent” we think can be defined in many ways that are definitely not tied to gender binaries or “having” a child. This open call is open to anyone who has or shares legal guardianship over a person under the age of 18.

    This open call opportunity is for 2 available slots, August 19th, 2017 – February 19th, 2018 & February 20th, 2018 – August 20th, 2018. The studio is a newly renovated work-only space with large steel shelving. It is a private studio but the building is regularly busy with artists and art enthusiasts interested in collaboration and idea sharing. This call is open to artists, local or not, who are working in any media.

    For more information and guidelines on how to submit, please visit https://aferro.org/opportunities/open-calls/ or email Gallery Aferro at info@aferro.org.

    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.

    The Studios at MASS MoCA offers residencies for artists and writers from 1 to 8 weeks. Selected participants receive private studio space on MASS MoCA’s campus, newly renovated housing (private bedroom, shared kitchen & bath) directly across the street from the museum, one group meal per day, free access to the museum’s galleries, optional financial and business coaching from MASS MoCA’s Assets for Artists staff, and free use of Makers’ Mill, a printmaking and fiber arts makerspace located a short walk from the Studios.

    For this upcoming residency season, they’re offering something more: two residency sessions with a special focus on “financial Wellness.” A subset of the artists invited to participate in the fall/winter season will be offered slots in a two-week residency session that includes group workshops with artist experts on personal finance and business planning, and one-on-one assistance with financial and business planning, along with a $500 travel stipend. The residency fee for those sessions will be reduced to just $150/week. Interested applicants will provide additional information to be considered.
