Applications accepted from OCTOBER 1 - DECEMBER 1, 2012
Administration fee: $10
SCULPTURE SPACE, in Utica, New York invites artists whose focus is sculpture to apply for a two-month residency between September 2013 and August 2014. Eighteen to twenty residents are selectively chosen each year; a stipend of $2000 is awarded to offset costs (dependent on funding).
In addition to a 5500 square foot shared studio with specialized equipment and technical support/assistance, two 400 square feet private studios are also available. Three to four artists are in residence each month, housing is provided a block away in a newly-renovated residence with private bedrooms and shared living space for a small fee (free to New York State residents). Artists are responsible for materials, specialized tools and food. The studio and house are located in downtown Utica, situated in Central New York's scenic Mohawk Valley.
Residents are selected by a Review Committee. A guest juror is also included, this year: Tracy Adler, Director of the new Wellin Museum of Hamilton College (Adler was until recently the long-time Director of the Hunter College Gallery). Artists are notified in March. Primary criteria for selection are simple: artists are chosen based on the quality, originality and potential of their work.
