Stoneleaf is inviting women artists to apply for its 2018 residency program which will run from April to August 2018. The program consists of four residencies for a total of 12 artists and will culminate with open studios attended by the public. Stoneleaf provides participants with large shared studio spaces, shared living areas and private bedrooms. Throughout the residency, dinner is provided every evening to encourage the exchange of ideas. Additional artists and art professionals will also be invited for dinners and studio visits.
Situated in a remote area two hours north of New York City in the Catskill Mountains, Stoneleaf offers artists access to 20 acres of land with forest trails, a stream and pond as well as a tennis court and other outdoor activities. Weekly trips are organized to gather materials in the nearby towns of Woodstock and Kingston, while basic materials and wifi are available on-site. The program, founded by Helen Toomer and Eric Romano, is open to women artists of all disciplines, but with a preference for artists with a focus on social practice. Artists must arrange for their own travel to upstate New York, but transportation to and from the regional train station in Kingston will be provided.
Deadline: Feb. 28, 2018
