The Stonecreek Farm Artist Residency

The Stonecreek Artist in Residency program is a privately funded opportunity to support established or emerging artists who are working with nature as a theme or inspiration. We are looking for artists in any medium that will directly utilize the time to be in nature and use the environment at Stonecreek – rocks, trees, plants, water, earth and the forest.

Stonecreek Farm is a 40 acre property that is immersed in the forest and hills of the Hudson Valley of New York State. The property is located adjacent to Sterling National Forest and Harriman State Park and an hour away from New York City by car or train. The residency is a 2–3 week program for the artist to live and work without interruption on the Stonecreek property. The studio and residency is inside a barn with a modern kitchen, bath, living room/bedroom.

This program is unique in the fact that is for one single artist at a time to come and live on the property and have a continuous relationship with art as it develops in and from the experience. See past resident artist statements.

Who Should Apply?

We encourage graduate students, faculty or alumni from schools around the globe – keeping in mind visa and transportation status should be cleared through your academic organization.
Working artists are encouraged to use the residency to generate inspiration, create or develop new ideas or may have a specific project or show in mind.

Application and Selection Process

Applications will be juried by a panel of art professionals. There may be follow-up questions about your application and we will contact you with those. Artists for the Fall residency can apply by August 6, Spring by November 15 and Summer by March 30. Notifications will be sent to applicants 3 weeks after these dates.

Requirements – The main requirement is that you are already exploring ideas in nature and/or using natural elements in your work. The main objective of this residency is to be immerse in nature and use this experience however it progresses. We also ask that you propose, in a statement, how you plan to structure your time i.e. sketch, hike, gather, paint, build so that we may accommodate these if possible. We look forward to viewing your work in links and attachments – 3 only please.

Details and Resources – The program is privately funded and will be free of charge, offering the artist in residence with a stipend of $250.00 for food and materials. Many supplies and materials are available in the studio and on the grounds.
