Tag: Woodstock A-I-R
“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.”

“In 2011 the Center for Photography at Woodstock will provide residencies for seven artists and one scholar to participate in WOODSTOCK A-I-R. Residency opportunities are held sequentially and range from three to six weeks from June through September. Participants receive workspace, critical and technical support, housing, stipends for food and travel, and honoraria.
Artists working in photography and related media are invited to continue work on existing projects, embark on new work, and/or contemplate their artistic goals. Participants have 24-hour access to CPW’s workspace facilities as well as CPW’s professional resources. Artists who participate in WOODSTOCK A-I-R have their work featured in a biannual exhibition in CPW’s galleries and/or have their work published in PHOTOGRAPHY Quarterly. Additionally, participating artists’ work is archived on CPW’s website. Professional development is fostered through scheduled studio visits between artists and CPW staff as well as with visiting critics.
The Critical Studies Residency invites writers/curators to take advantage of the solitude of Woodstock and utilize their time in completing scholarly research in the photographic arts (either contemporary or historic) with the goal of publication or exhibition. CPW’s library, archives, collection, research tools, as well as the libraries of regional colleges are accessible to participating residents. Critical Studies residents are provided the opportunity to publish their text in CPW’s afore mentioned publication, PHOTOGRAPHY Quarterly. “
