A Guide to 20 Top Artist Residencies and Retreats Across the United States

by Alanna Martinez, Chloe Wyma
Published: March 16, 2012

“The path to a successful art career can be a twisting one, but one commonly traveled route is the artist residency. There are hundreds of residencies out there, ranging from highly prestigious programs that are invitation-only — like those of Artpace, the Walker Art Center, or UCLA’s Hammer Museum, all of which mainly invite established artists to create fully funded projects — to more open, or even experimental, retreats.

Not all residencies are created equal, and while some may help you get a leg up in the art world, you may still have to pay for the opportunity. Programs can be grouped several ways: Some are fully funded without fees; some are partially funded with fees; some offer stipends/awards; still others are project/work based. There is even a thriving “alternative” category (stay tuned for a Part 2 of this series where we’ll look at some of the funkier options out there). Despite the wealth of programs in the United States, and a plethora of funding options, there are few user-friendly guides —  though Res Artis and the Alliance of Artist Communities online directories are valuable resources. Below, we assemble information on 20 programs that cover the spectrum, offering the most important information for each, including who is eligible, important alumni, pros, and cons.

Abstraction

Dear Painter …

Painting

Tomma Abts, Tauba Auerbach, Matt Connors, Charline von Heyl and Bernd Ribbeck talk about the role of abstraction in painting today

Charline von Heyl Hibiu Habibi, 2011, acrylic and charcoal on linen

Tomma Abts Uphe, 2011, acrylic and oil on canvas

Bernd Ribbeck OHNE TITEL (Untitled), 2010, acrylic and pigment marker on MDF

Mat Connors My Suitor, 2011, acrylic on canvas in two parts

Tauba Auerbach Untitled (Fold), 2011, acrylic on canvas and wooden stretcher

“What does the term ‘abstraction’ mean to non-figurative painters working today? I spoke to five artists, all of whom make work grounded in process and materiality. There is a dissonance between the directness of their work and the fuzzier set of interests and objectives – high-minded, metaphysical and historical – that ‘abstraction’ suggests. None of these painters seem interested in spirituality as a social idea or abstraction as a historical category, but they share a real belief in the metaphysical properties of work, materials, process and practice, a kind of secular faith in the possibilities of non-objective image-making. Their desire is not for transcendence through abstraction, but for a greater embeddedness in the world through materials and work.”

Paintings by David Lynch at Tilton Gallery

“Those familiar with the language of “Twin Peaks,” “Lost Highway,” and “Blue Velvet” probably don’t need to be shouted at to know that paintings by David Lynch, now on view at the Tilton Gallery, are probably worth seeing. It’s odd, but many fans of Lynch accomplishments in film and television are unaware that he started out as a painter — an alum from the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts — and that he never completely severed his ties with the art world.

Most of the work on display will spark comparisons to his films, not unjustifiably. Surreal, paramorphic imagery dominates his watercolors and collages. You can expect a surprising juxtaposition or nightmarish misstep in almost every frame, and while the works are not without their dark turns, a commitment to humor and irony is hard to overlook.”

“The coast of Chelsea may just become a new public art destination. An exhibition of monumental sculpture by George Rickey and Kenneth Snelson is expected to be approved by the Hudson River Trust, the organization that maintains the five-mile park hugging the west coast of Manhattan, and then installed this summer (exact dates have not yet been finalized). The trust is also considering a number of other proposals from galleries and art funds to organize installations, events, and performances in the park. “It’s not a new idea to put art there, but it is a matter of the right exhibition and the ability of a group to execute a project,” trust president Madelyn Wils told ARTINFO. “This area in Chelsea is perfect for an art installation.” Nevertheless, as is the case with most public art projects, the exhibition is not without its opponents.”

Brooklyn Museum to Honor ‘First’ Women

By MELENA RYZIK

On April 18, as part of the fifth anniversary of the Brooklyn Museum’s Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art, the museum will present the First Awards, given to 15 women who were first in their fields. Among the honorees are Sandra Day O’Connor; Jessye Norman; Toni Morrison; Connie Chung; the choreographer and director Susan Stroman; Faye Wattleton, a former president of Planned Parenthood; and Chief Wilma Pearl Mankiller, the first female chief of the Cherokee Nation.

The award — a glass sculpture designed by the artist Judy Chicago — will be presented by Ms. Chicago, Gloria Steinem and Elizabeth Sackler, the art collector and philanthropist behind the center. Ms. Chicago is also the creator of one of the most famous feminist artworks ever made, “The Dinner Party,” a triangular table with personalized place settings for 39 great women of myth and history that is now on permanent display at the Sackler Center. The award recipients “will become 21st- century, permanent members of the symbolic fourth wing of ‘The Dinner Party,’” the event’s organizers said in a statement. The awards are part of the Brooklyn Artists Ball, the museum’s annual gala that celebrates local artists. This year’s focus is female artists; Martha Rosler, Amy Sillman and Mickalene Thomas will also be honored. Marisa Tomei, the Brooklyn-born, Oscar-winning actress, serves as an honorary chairperson.
