“WOODSTOCK A-I-R is a workspace residency program designed to support artists of color working in the photographic arts who reside in the United States with access to time, facilities, financial, critical, and technical support. This activity is created with an emphasis on supporting artists working in the photographic arts who are at the brink of their careers and promising talent. All of us lead very busy lives – the drive for this program is to free the artist – from the busy routines and demands of everyday – and to provide a sanctuary for creativity.
In 2013 CPW will offer 7 residencies for artists of color and 1 “critical studies residency” for a curator/critic of color. Residents receive 24/7 access to CPW’s workspace facilities (including black-&-white darkroom, digital imaging stations, and library), critical and technical support, stipend for food and travel, and honoraria. In addition, CPW extends participants opportunities in exhibition to residents.
Each resident is provided accommodations at a historic artist residence located .5 miles from CPW and the center of Woodstock’s business district. With quiet and solitude, yet, enlivened with a community of fellow artists, WOODSTOCK A-I-R participants work in an idyllic environment – a gathering place renowned for its vibrant cultural history.”
