The Center for Photography at Woodstock
Call for Entries: 2015 Woodstock A-I-R program
Deadline: Saturday, February 28, 2015
(postmarked)

“The Woodstock Artist-in-Residency Program is designed to support artists of color working in the photographic arts who reside in the United States that would benefit 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.

WOODSTOCK A-I-R encourages participants to pursue creative risk-taking in an environment rich in cultural resources. Working without distraction or interruption, participants focus intensely on their own work, continuing works in progress, setting goals for the future, and breaking new ground.

Each year CPW offers 7 residencies for artists of color and 1 “critical studies residency” for a curator/critic of color.

A-I-R’s receive:

  • accommodations at a historic artist residence located .5 miles from CPW and the center of Woodstock’s business district.
  • 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 honorarium
  • exhibition and related opportunities

Established in 1999, WOODSTOCK A-I-R has been made possible in part with support from the Phillip & Edith Leonian Foundation, the Milton & Sally Avery Foundation, the National Endowment for the Arts, and the New York State Council on the Arts (NYSCA), a state agency, with support from Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
