ARTIST IN RESIDENCE PROGRAM FEES AND FELLOWSHIPS

Communal Residency Fee

Byrdcliffe’s Residency fee for our communal buildings is $800 per artist per monthly session. Please see session dates on our Communal AiR Program page.  A deposit of no less than 50% is due upon acceptance to the program with the remaining balance due one month prior to arrival. The residency deposit is non-refundable. In the case of a cancellation, we will only consider a refund of the residency fee if the space can be filled with another resident.

Please click the “pay online” button below and enter the amount of the deposit or remaining balance you wish to pay for Byrdcliffe’s Artists- in-Residence Program.

Use the link above to submit deposits, payments, and balances. In most instances the deposit is equal to half the residency fee, after any awards if applicable. Residents are welcome to pay the full fee in a single payment if desired or may return to this link at any time to pay their remaining balance before the due date.

You may also pay by mailing us a check made out to:

Woodstock Byrdcliffe Guild
Attn: AiR
34 Tinker Street
Woodstock, NY 12498

It must be received, not postdated, by your payment deadline.


Fellowships

Byrdcliffe offers a number of fellowships each summer based on a combination of financial need and artistic merit, ranging from partial to full coverage of residency fees. To be eligible for a fellowship, artists must submit the first two pages of their most recent tax return with their application. Byrdcliffe graciously thanks all of our supporters! Including major contributions from The Pollock Krasner Foundation as well as the Milton & Sally Avery Arts Foundation, Bernard and Shirley Handel, the National Endowment for the Arts, numerous individual donors and local businesses, and artists like you!
