DESCRIPTION:
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.

RESIDENCY
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.

FELLOWSHIP
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 Expectations
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..

Our facilities include professional equipment and materials, including 2 gas kilns, 5 electric kilns, 2 large format slab rollers, 1 clay mixer, 3 de-airing pug mills, 2 clay extruders, 4 clay bodies, and an extensive inventory of glazes and chemicals.

ELIGIBILITY
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.
