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, seven days a week.
The 2019–2020 Sharpe-Walentas Studio Program residency period will last from September 2019 through August 2020, with an open studios weekend held in the spring of 2020.
Applications are due Friday, February 15, 2019, at 11:59 pm ET. For more information, visit thestudioprogram.com.
