Summer Artist Residency
July 21— August 5, 2018

Artists are invited to create, build, and imagine new works for 2 weeks in the Catskills.  The Shell House is uniquely built to facilitate communal living and new modes of thinking in a quiet natural setting.

Who is this for?

Who is this for?

The program is available to emerging visual artists, architectural designers, technologists, and installation artists who have at least some physical component to how their work manifests or is displayed (meaning, it is not purely digital). We also encourage creatives from other professional fields looking to deepen their art practice or develop a specific project to apply. By participating in the program, residents agree to leave one work of art or artifact to the Shell House, to be agreed upon reasonably by both parties depending on what your work is.

What's included?

  • Free lodging. There are 3 private rooms and a shared loft equipped with basic necessities and a small desk. The property itself is 5 acres including a large patio and lawn, as well as a small forested area.
  • Group critique where participants are encouraged to discuss their work and share constructive feedback for others.
  • Resources for connecting with the Catskills community, including mid-session artist studio visits.

What's not included?

What's not included?

  • Whatever materials and supplies are needed to complete your work.

  • Separate studio spaces.
  • Additional stipend for materials.
  • Transportation.

Applications for 2019 open in February. Sign up for the mailing list to be reminded.
