The Sharpe-Walentas Studio Program is currently accepting applications for its 2018-2019 residency period.

The Sharpe-Walentas Studio Program awards studio space to 17 visual artists for year-long residencies, with the mission to provide working studio space and community for artists. Artists are selected annually based on merit from a competitive pool of applicants by a professional jury of artists and members of the SWSP Artists Advisory Committee. Since its founding in 1991, over 400 artists have participated in the program.

The Sharpe-Walentas studios are located in Brooklyn, NY amidst a thriving waterfront community full of art galleries, creative professionals, and independent retailers. Studios have freight and passenger elevator access, high ceilings, and natural light. Communal spaces include a kitchen, slop sinks, restrooms, and a sitting area. Studio access is 24 hours/7 days week.

Applications are due Thursday, February 15, 2018, at 11:59pm EST.
