About the Residency:
This residency is aimed at helping artists find a foothold in the art world while they develop a new body of work as an Open Studio Member. Residents receive a 10% discount on the Open Studio Membership while getting additional support of 6 months advisory with Jason Stopa or Christina Kelly. Residents are also given the opportunity to exhibit their work at Trestle. Participants receive all benefits of a Brooklyn Art Space Open Studio Membership as well as monthly group advisory meetings which include critiques, guest speakers, and studio visits. By participating in this program artists take advantage of networking and community building opportunities in addition to having access to low-cost studio space. The residents give back to the community and get a peek into the administrative end of the art world by volunteering in the gallery or studio for three hours per month. All artists are invited to apply. Applications are accepted twice each year.

Who this residency is ideal for:
1. Artists developing a new body of work
2. Artists entering or re-entering the art world
