Project Art residencies are intended to provide a place and support for emerging and professional contemporary artists, writers, curators, or critics wishing to complete a specific project.

• We welcome applications on an ongoing basis and length of residency is determined individually.

• International artists working in ceramics with an upcoming US exhibition are encouraged to apply so they might produce works in the US and avoid costly international shipping.

• We offer availability to become a resident artist within a shared group studio.

Project Art only provides studio space.  Housing, food, supplies, materials, and firings are not included. A public presentation of completed artwork or project is required at conclusion of residency.  The studio is not generally open to the public but there are periodic public events, tours, and visiting professionals.

materials: Supplies can be purchased in advance and delivered.  There is a hardware and general store within walking distance.

transportation: Transportation to and from the airport can be arranged. While a car is highly recommended for a short-term residency it is possible to exist without one.

facilities: For artists working in ceramics, electric firings and spray booth are available on site. There are several wood kilns in nearby studios that are potentially available to residents – a list can be provided but all arrangements are the responsibility of the artists.

applications: All applications are reviewed by Project Art director, Leslie Ferrin, along with current studio artists. Artists are selected on the basis of the quality of work, ability to produce work in a group setting, and potential for positive interaction with the professional arts community in the Berkshires, Pioneer Valley, and Hilltowns of Western Massachusetts.
