“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.”

“Andrea Modica works with an 8×10 camera to slow down the process of picture making and to create intimate dramas. A graduate of Yale University, she has photographed subjects such as Minor League baseball players, a halfway house, and a Catholic girl’s school. Andrea has five monographs, including Treadwell, which is considered a seminal work of portraiture. Her photographs have been published in The New York Times and Vanity Fair, and exhibited at the Metropolitan Museum of Art and International Center of Photography, amongst other prestigious venues. She is represented by Edwynn Houk Gallery in NYC, and is a professor of photography at Drexel University.”
This lecture is being presented in conjunction with Andrea Modica’s workshop, Environmental Portraiture. Visit CPW’s website for details.
