Wayfarers Accepting Applications for Residency

Published February 11, 2016

Wayfarers is now accepting applications for our Summer Artist in Residency Program. The program awards one artist the opportunity to develop a body of work in the supportive environment of Wayfarers, where ten other working artists have studios. The selected artist is offered our 400 square foot ground floor gallery to use as a studio for 2 months (July and August 2016) and awarded unlimited access to the Wayfarers facilities, including the woodshop and silkscreen equipment. We are usually able to offer a small materials stipend ($300). The residency culminates in a solo exhibition in the gallery in September 2016.

Wayfarers is located on the edge of the Bushwick and Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhoods in Brooklyn, in what has rapidly become the latest New York haven for artists and musicians.
