The mission of the Women’s Studio Workshop in Rosendale, New York, is to operate and maintain an artists’ workspace that encourages the voice and vision of individual women artists, provide professional opportunities for artists at various stages of their careers, and promote programs designed to stimulate public involvement, awareness, and support for the visual arts.
In support of that mission, WSW is accepting applications for its Studio Residency Grant.
The six-to-eight-week residency is awarded to women artists interested in creating new work in a discipline supported by the studio, including intaglio, letterpress, papermaking, screenprinting, photography, or ceramics.
The program provides a stipend of $350 per week, up to $500 for materials used during the residency, up to $250 for travel within the continental United States, free onsite housing, and 24/7 studio access. WCW can also provide technical advice and production assistance.
Residencies are limited to artists who are not currently enrolled in an academic program.
The residency has a two-step application process. A rotating, impartial jury selects finalists, and then, on behalf of the artist, the WCW applies for NEA funding for the chosen projects.
See the Women’s Studio Workshop website for complete program guidelines and application instructions.
