Greenwich House Pottery pleased to launch the Residency and
Fellowship program, designed to support artists’ projects. The program's goal is
to open up the GHP facility to raise awareness around the importance of the
creative engagement with ceramics. Greenwich House Pottery is seeking
out artists, designers and architects to participate in this Residency
and Fellowship program. These new opportunities add to our long history
of resident artist and artist-in-residence programming and largely as a
result of the Allan Buitekant Fund for Ceramic Art & Inquiry.
Ultimately, these efforts introduce more artists to the pleasure of clay
and new perspectives that ceramics uniquely provides.
RESIDENCY vs. FELLOWSHIP
All Residents and Fellows are provided access to the building during
business hours. Residents and Fellows are expected to attend meetings
and Greenwich House Pottery events as frequently as possible. Residents
and Fellows are required to keep their studios clean and orderly. Both
Residents and Fellows will exhibit some of the work made during their
time at GHP in a group exhibition at the Jane Hartsook Gallery in July.
Greenwich House Pottery offers project-based residencies to
non-ceramic artists. Residents will not be artists formally trained in
ceramics but those who seek an opportunity to create a body of work in
the material. Residents are not required to spend specific amounts of
time at GHP, though special consideration is given to applicants who
plan to use its resources to the fullest. All Residents are expected to
share their research and practice via formal or informal learning
opportunities within the Greenwich House Pottery community. Residents
are expected to keep their studio clean and orderly as studio visits and informal discussions from the Pottery's members are encouraged.
Greenwich House Pottery offers fellowships with a projected two month deep-immersion period. Fellows receive a $2,000 stipend during
their stay in NYC as well as access to Greenwich House Pottery’s
equipment and dedicated work areas during regular business hours. The
Fellowship program selects an artist based on an individual’s
overall practice as an artist, with consideration for how they might fit
into Greenwich House Pottery’s environment and contribute to the
organization’s growth and public engagement. Fellows must have exhibited a
sustained and lasting involvement in ceramics; they are required to
spend at least five weekdays at Greenwich House Pottery each week,
during business hours; they are expected to keep their studio clean
and in order. Residents are expected to keep their studio clean and orderly as studio visits and informal discussions from the Pottery's members are encouraged. All Fellows are expected to share elements of their
practice via formal or informal learning opportunities within the
Greenwich House Pottery community.
Attendance requirements are not placed on the Residency program.
However, Residents and Fellows are strongly encouraged to spend as much
time as possible at Greenwich House Pottery. Special consideration is
given to applicants who will take full advantage of the resources in the
building. Fellows are expected to spend at least five full days per
week at Greenwich House Pottery, from approximately 10:00 a.m.– 5:00 p.m..

The Pottery accepts applications from artists not currently working in
clay for its residency and accepts applications from ceramic artists for
its fellowship. The sole criterion for acceptance is artistic
excellence, which the Pottery defines in a pluralistic and inclusive
way. Greenwich House Pottery encourages applications from artists
representing the widest possible range of perspectives and demographics,
and welcomes artists engaging in the broadest spectrum of artistic
practice and investigation. To that end, emerging as well as established
artists are invited to apply. Applicants who are in a degree program as
of the date of application are ineligible for a residency or fellowship.
APPLICATION PERIODS AND DEADLINES
Artists may apply only once every 12 months. The next deadline is April 1, 2017.
