Artist in Resident participants are expected make a serious commitment to the program for the entire three-month session and to utilize the studio actively and consistently (on average artists are in the studio 20 hours per week). In addition, artists are required to give an public artist talk or teach one public workshop. It is vital to the success of the program that Artist in Resident participants fully take advantage of the unique resources we are able to provide. For this reason, Artist in Resident participants cannot simultaneously participate in another residency or degree-granting program while participating in Guttenberg Arts Space and Time Artist Residency.
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 for three months in Guttenberg, New Jersey. Artists will also be given a one month group show as well as studio visits from accomplished professionals from the art world. Each artist is required to give a free and open to the public artist lecture or workshop towards the close of their three month residency. We highly recommend a site visit to our building. Artists are selected by a blind jury of arts professionals on the merits of their work.
Artists are chosen based on the single criterion of work that demonstrates a compelling vision as defined by the assembled panel’s collective opinion. Materials are reviewed and voted on by the panelists in elimination rounds which produce a smaller pool for each round. An artist’s advancement is a product of the collective vote of the panel. A single panelist cannot ensure an applicant’s success or failure. Panel proceedings are overseen by the Guttenberg Arts Staff and by Guttenberg Arts Board of Trustees. Panelists’ names are kept confidential until the awards are announced. Artists are awarded residencies at all career levels.
HOW IS WORK REVIEWED?
Applications are available for panelists to read as they review support materials. An artist’s digital images are projected in the order uploaded by the applicant. Moderators will read aloud the materials, dimensions, and date of the images to the panel.
HOW ARE PANELS ASSEMBLED?
Panelists change each round and are comprised of three art world professionals.
