RESIDENCY 108

Open to artists worldwide; collaborating teams of up to 3 welcome to apply
Next deadline: August 1, 2017 for 2017 Fall Session.

The application period is currently open for our fall 2017 session: October 21-November 18. The deadline for applications is August 1, 2017.
Applicants will be notified by or before August 7th. Below are listed our required application materials, please send to director@residency108.org.

Artists of any age from any country may apply. We accept solo artists as well as collaborating teams of up to three people. We are particularly interested in applicants whose practice involves a defined engagement with landscape, ecology, and or projects that employ historical or first-hand research of the 108 site. Please have your statement reflect this intention.

 

Residency 108 invites emerging and established artists, writers and thinkers of all disciplines to immerse themselves in their creative practice. We particularly welcome those who work with nature, ecology and the installation of temporary outdoor land-art works. The residency is free apart from the cost of travel and material expenses which must be assumed by the individual.

Two four week-long residencies are offered each year, one during the month of October and one in May. The program accommodates three artists at a time. Each resident is provided with a room, working facilities and a weekly stipend for food, participants are responsible for cooking their own meals. Each resident will be asked to present their work during the residency and weekly critiques are held as a group, sometimes with a visiting critic.

The program takes place on 108 acres of pastoral land which was used as a horse farm in the last century. The property features rolling hills, mowed paths, meadows, densely wooded forests, wetlands with a few ponds of varying size and a seasonal stream. In addition to these ecosystems a variety of native plant species host habitats for birds, reptiles and amphibians. Frequent visitors include coyotes, deer and wild turkeys. The barn is home to chickens, sheep, horses, goats, cats, a cow and a pig. There is also a private residence on the property, which is not available for use by residents.

The residency is located in a remote area; the closest village is a 7-minute drive or 25-minute bike ride. There is no public transportation in the area, and we do not have a vehicle available for resident use apart from a bike. We do however provide weekly trips to shop for supplies and food. Our program is ideal for artists who wish to engage with the landscape and prefer isolation to interaction. If you require constant contact with “civilization” this may not be the program for you.

Facilities

Residents will reside in a 150-year-old two story house, recently renovated for modern comforts. Each participant will have their own bedroom. The main house has a washer, dryer and a well-stocked kitchen with basic cooking supplies and tools. Buildings on the property are not wheelchair accessible, but we are happy to discuss meeting specific needs.

There are currently two studios for artists with more traditional visual arts practice which share a bathroom and work-sink, located across from the main house. The other workspace is a room in the main house and can be used for writing, composing or a computer-based practice. Please note these spaces vary in size and amenities, and we assign studios based on the perceived needs of each artist’s practice. Residents will not be able to choose their work spaces. Each participant is responsible for bringing all necessary materials for their work. There is a well-stocked art supply store in nearby Rhinebeck and basic tools are available for use at the farm.

A phone is available for local calls. Cell phone service is variable. Wireless internet access functions 95% of the time. The house does not have a computer, but a printer and paper are available. No pets or overnight visitors are allowed.

Location

108 Residency is located in Clermont, NY. Clermont can easily be reached by a 1 hour and 45 minute Amtrak train from Penn Station to the Rhinecliff stop, followed by a 20 minute taxi ride.

The farm is 20 minutes from Rhinebeck, a village with many restaurants and shops, and 5 minutes from Tivoli, a 2-block hamlet with a handful of restaurants. Nearby sites of interest include: Bard College, Dia Art Center, Storm King and many historic mansions along the Hudson River.
