ARTIST IN RESIDENCE PROGRAM – 2017 ONLINE APPLICATION
The Byrdcliffe Artist in Residence program provides artists of exceptional talent with uninterrupted time and creative space to research and create new work. Lasting four weeks (or a possible eight weeks for ceramic artists), residencies provide artists with private studio space within a community of peers and the serene natural setting of the Byrdcliffe Art Colony. Artists are invited to participate in open studios, work-shares, communal dinners and field trips, or may spend their residency working in the creative solitude of a private studio. Byrdcliffe’s 2017 Artist in Residence Program application is open now. The deadline for submitting the 2017 AIR application is March 10, 2017. Read more
