Aferro Studio Residency
Now Accepting applications for 2010 artists in residence
Due December 18, 2009
About the Residency:
Several of the 08-09 Aferro Studio residents have commented that the chance for informal networking with peers afforded by residency in the
building was one of the best aspects of their experience. Also mentioned by residents consistently as a unique and valuable aspect of
the program was temporary ownership of a platform to interact with the public.
Residents will be awarded a 1200-2000 sq ft studio for 6 months, with 24 hr access, access to visiting curators and other gallery directors,
a solo exhibition in our project space, and inclusion in an end-of-program catalog highlighting their work over the length of the
residency. The current Aferro building can accommodate up to 5 artists at a time. Artists will be selected on the basis of quality of work,
commitment to their field, and ability to interact positively with the community at large. The program will aim for a mix of Newark and
Studios range in size from 1200 to 2000 square feet. The studios are strictly work only spaces. The studios are raw spaces with minimal
amenities. Artists who are accepted into the program must be prepared to actively use their studio. 6-month slots are available beginning
Feb 20, 2010
$225 a month per studio covers all utilities.
There is no residency restriction for applicants. Artists in any media may apply. The building is not appropriate for welding and other open flame activities. Please contact us with any questions about your application, our space or what you might want to do with your time at Aferro.
