The Pottery offers a Residency and Fellowship Program and an internship program. We also accept exhibition proposals at the Jane Hartsook Gallery, and will post employment opportunities below when available.
Residency and Fellowship Program
We are pleased to offer the Greenwich House Pottery Residency, 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 carry out 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 (GHP) invites artists, designers, and architects to apply. We aim to offer support and encouragement to expand the field of contemporary ceramics.
We encourage 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, both 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 the program.
Please read the full description and application guidelines for the GHP Residency Program here. The next deadline is April 1, 2022 for residencies and fellowships during the January 2023 to December 2023 program year. Applications must be submitted through SlideRoom.
The Internship Program offers high school, college and graduate students a short-term work experience in the Pottery’s studio or arts administration. Through hands-on experience, interns are exposed to the day-to-day activities of a thriving community arts organization, while given the opportunity to explore their own work in a studio environment. Summer interns assist with a variety of special projects ranging in scope from studio-oriented tasks, including kiln firing and mixing clay, to facility repairs like painting, to administrative projects. Summer interns work directly with the Studio Manager or administrative staff, depending on the internship requested.
Interns have studio access during open studio hours, all stocked materials, and free firings.
The Intern Program is open to United States residents 18 and over who are enrolled in part-time or full-time academic study. Applicants should demonstrate motivation in their work, an ability to work well in a group environment, and a strong desire to expand their knowledge of the ceramic medium. Some studio experience is strongly preferred for those seeking internships in the studio.
Fall, winter and spring internships accept applications on a rolling basis, and the duration of the internship is open. Applications to summer internships must be emailed by June 1, and will last 1 or 2 months.
