Artist Residency

Shandaken: Storm King

Applications for the 2023 residency season of Shandaken: Storm King are now open. This season’s program has been structured to offer broader, deeper artist support. For the first time, candidates selected from the open application cycle will be offered the exclusive use of the Shandaken: Storm King residency house, so that they may bring family or collaborators with them. Up to four children, partners, or other family members of successful applicants, or up to 5 members of a collaborative group, will be hosted alone together in a historic four-bedroom house with a 300-square-foot, indoor studio in a private area of Storm King’s grounds, for two to six weeks each.

All individuals with a creative practice focused on visual art may apply to Shandaken: Storm King. Applications will be accepted from March 10 to April 6 and will be reviewed by a jury of highly regarded art professionals. Accepted residents will be notified in May and hosted at Storm King from June through September.

The facilities of Shandaken: Storm King are well suited for painting, drawing, collage, research, writing, reflection, and performance, as well as for work that is community-driven or socially based, land-based, or ephemeral. The shapes of residencies are largely determined by the artists themselves. The residency grounds are peaceful and private, but Storm King’s main site and vibrant towns of the Lower Hudson Valley region are nearby. There are no requirements to produce artwork and all engagements scheduled for artists are opt-in.
