GUTTENBERG ARTS STAR PROGRAM
2023 Residency Cycle
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 4,500 sq. ft. professionally equipped workspace for the visual arts including printmaking, dark room and ceramics facilities for three months in Guttenberg, New Jersey (just across the Hudson River). Artists 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 and spend a minimum of 15 hours a week in studio. We highly recommend a site visit to our building if you are unsure of your commute or have questions regarding our facilities. Artists are selected by a blind jury of arts professionals on the merits of their work. Please note: we do not provide housing accommodations.
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.

ARTIST PARTICIPATION EXPECTATIONS
Artist in Resident participants are expected make a serious commitment to the program for the entire three-month session and to utilize the studio actively and consistently (on average artists are in the studio 15 hours per week). In addition, artists are required to give an public artist talk or teach one public workshop. It is vital to the success of the program that Artist in Resident participants fully take advantage of the unique resources we are able to provide. For this reason, Artist in Resident participants cannot simultaneously participate in another residency or degree-granting program while participating in Guttenberg Arts Space and Time Artist Residency. Please note: Artists are guaranteed the first stipend of $400 but are required to clock a total 240 hours during the program (80 hours per month x 3 months) to be awarded the remaining $800 in unrestricted cash stipends.
