Guttenberg Arts is dedicated to promoting the visual arts by providing practicing artists with the space and time to develop their work while engaging with the public.  Guttenberg Arts aims to increase opportunities for supported artists by expanding their community through artistic collaborations and promotion to curators and collectors in the tri-state area.  

Guttenberg Arts believes that exploring new technologies in the studio, while working as an artistic mentor to children and seniors in the Guttenberg community, provides Guttenberg Artists with unique opportunities for artistic evolution.

The Space and Time Artist Residency at Guttenberg Arts provides artists with a $1,200.00 USD stipend to cover material, travel, and housing in conjunction with 24/7 shared access to a 4,500sqft. professionally equipped workspace for the visual arts including printmaking, dark room and ceramics for three months in Guttenberg, New Jersey (West New York). Artist will also be given a group show at the end of the residency, as well as studio visits from accomplished professionals from the art world. Each artist is required to give a free public artist lecture or workshop towards the close of their three month residency. We highly recommend a site visit to our building. Artists are selected by a blind jury of arts professionals on the merits of their work.
