We are pleased to offer the Greenwich House Pottery Residency and Fellowship, a program designed to support artists’ projects. Our goal is to open up our facility to give experienced ceramic artists the means to create a project they might not be able to elsewhere and to give artists who are not well-versed in ceramics the opportunity to use our resources to develop a body of work in this medium. 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 artist-in-residence programming and are largely as a result of the Allan Buitekant Fund for Ceramic Art & Inquiry. Ultimately, these efforts support innovation and creative development within the field of ceramics by providing resources and support to artists working in clay. 

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 in order. 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 the July following their Residency or Fellowship. 

Greenwich House Pottery offers project-based Residencies to non-ceramic artists. Residents are artists who have not been formally trained in ceramics but who are seeking 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 the 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 in order. We encourage studio visits from our membership and informal discussions so the studio must remain presentable and clean at all times. 

Greenwich House Pottery offers Fellowships with a projected one 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 will select 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 are artists who have demonstrated a sustained and lasting involvement in the field. They are required to spend at least five weekdays at Greenwich House Pottery each week, during business hours. Fellows are expected to keep their studio clean and in order. We encourage studio visits from our membership and informal discussions so the studio must remain presentable and clean at all times. All Fellows are expected to share elements of their practice via formal or informal learning opportunities within the Greenwich House Pottery community or our public 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 10AM–5PM. 

The Pottery accepts applications from artists not trained in ceramics 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. 

Artists may apply only once every 12 months. The next deadline is April 1, 2018.
