The mission of the Women's Studio Workshop in Rosendale, New York, is to operate and maintain a workspace that encourages the voice and vision of individual women artists, provide professional opportunities for women artists at various stages of their careers, and promote programs designed to stimulate public involvement, awareness, and support for the visual arts.
In support of that mission, WSW is accepting applications for its Art-in-Education Artist’s Book Grant.
Through the program, eight- to ten-week residencies will be awarded to two emerging women artists to create a new artist’s book and teach young people. Generally, the resident dedicates her first month to producing a limited-edition artist’s book that is hand-printed and bound in the studio. WSW can provide technical advice; training on new equipment, techniques, and materials; and production assistance.
During the second half of the residency, the artist works with young people in WSW’s studios, teaching one to two days/week for three to four weeks and visiting the students twice in school. Studio space and equipment is reserved for students during program hours, but artists may work at any time outside AIE.
The program provides a stipend of $350 per week for up to ten weeks, up to $750 for materials, up to $250 for travel within the continental United States, free onsite housing, and 24/7 studio access during non-AIE sessions.
All applications must be mailed to the Women's Studio Workshop no later than November 15, 2017:
