Submissions deadline is February 25, 2022

Notification of acceptance by March 15

First exhibition to take place April 1- April 29

Roost Studios will award 4 artists a solo exhibition opportunity to create a month long

installation in the Tiny Roost Gallery "Art on the Outside".

What we are looking for

The challenge is to develop an innovative art project that meaningfully engages with issues of advocacy, justice, and community-building.

All art forms will be considered — visual/ conceptual art, photography, new media, video, audio, creative writing, or other forms.

Visual art must be central to the project, and be designed to fit within the format of the Tiny Roost dimensions.

The proposal must reflect an informed understanding of the particular art form(s) being used, as well as of the issues relevant to the communities being served.

In addition Artists must explore supporting activities surrounding the installation that may take the form of “social practice” that engages communities in an interactive exchange. For example, a performance, drama or dance, a poetry reading, and artist talk, a garden, a meal, a website, a story exchange, or an urban planning project, and more.

The Byrdcliffe Arts Colony Artists-in-Residence Program (AiR) offers uninterrupted time and space for creatives in all disciplines. Our serene and rustic mountain community is 2.5 hours north of NYC in Woodstock NY with residencies open to individuals and co-applicants at all stages of their career. Byrdcliffe’s AiR program is particularly beneficial to those who find it restorative to live in a community environment surrounded by natural beauty. More information can be found at: http://www.woodstockguild.org/artist-residencies/

In the Monthly AiR Program, DEADLINE: January 15, Residencies offer artists’ studios and accommodations within a community of peers. Each session hosts between 16-21 artists and lasts just under four weeks. Sessions conclude with an Open Studio event at the Villetta, a quintessential Summer Woodstock happening that combines visual arts, readings, music, and community.

• Session 01: Saturday, May 28 – Wednesday, June 22, 2022
• Session 02: Saturday, June 25 – Wednesday, July 20, 2022
• Session 03: Saturday, August 6 – Wednesday, August 31, 2022
• Session 04: Saturday, September 3 – Wednesday, September 28, 2022

In the Seasonal AiR Program April 30 – September 29, DEADLINE January 15, Artists spend 5 months living independently and working in simple Arts & Crafts style residence/studio cottages constructed between 1902 and 1903. Buildings were part of the original Byrdcliffe Arts Colony and are located in a close to nature setting within close proximity of the monthly AiR buildings. Five month residencies are primarily autonomous with optional programming available.
Cottages are unique in size and layout and may accommodate anywhere from 1-2 bedrooms. Individuals, co-applicants, peers, teams (both collaborative and non-collaborative), and other variations may apply.

WINTERIZED YEAR ROUND RESIDENCIES: We have cottages for artists and craftsperson’s working in all disciplines and media, with the express purpose of maintaining Byrdcliffe as a focus for creative collaboration and experiences. These simple wooden Arts & Crafts style structures were all constructed in 1903 as part of the original Byrdcliffe Arts Colony. Pets are not permitted except for ADA service animals only.

-3 1/2 weeks: COMMUNAL residence with annexed art studio or writing room
-5 months: SEASONAL residence/studio
-3 months: WINTERIZED residence/studio
-6 months: WINTERIZED residence/studio
-9 months: WINTERIZED residence/studio
-12 months: WINTERIZED residence/studio

All artists are invited to participate in a welcome gathering, open studio events, field trip, and other practiced shares. Residents have the opportunity to participate in an exhibition at Byrdcliffe’s Kleinert/James Center for the Arts the after their residency the following spring/summer.


The Byrdcliffe Arts Colony annually welcomes over 80 visual artists, writers, weavers, composers, and creators of exceptional talent in groups of 15-20 per month. The main criterion for acceptance to Byrdcliffe’s AiR program is artistic excellence or a demonstrated commitment to one’s field of endeavor. Emerging as well as established artists, writers, musicians, and craftspeople in nearly all media are invited to apply. We offer ceramic kilns, weaving looms, and a minimal darkroom. We currently do not have printmaking facilities/equipment or a wood=shop but welcome these disciplines. Please email us if you have questions regarding your specific practice's eligibility.

Monthly AiR Program fees total $800 per artist per session. Seasonal AiR Program fees depend on cottage. A limited number of general need and merit-based fellowships and subsidies are available to offset the residency fees. Byrdcliffe extends tremendous gratitude to individual donors and granting partners and offers the following fellowships for the season through their generosity:

2021 Group Exhibition




Ice Cream Social is excited to present our inaugural exhibition that will open up the newly renovated art space to the public! The small-group exhibition will feature invited & open call artists, age 18+, based in the U.S. (video artists may be an exception). All mediums are welcome, but installation & sculpture work is recommended to be submitted only by artists who are able to install their piece in person. Some exceptions may be possible.

In an effort to support artists who take the time to apply to the open call, we will be featuring submitted works by the “runner-ups” on social media. Side note: Our brand-new artist studios will also be completed and ready for viewing at the time of the exhibition. Subscribe for email updates to stay in the know when they become available.

The Show: Though the show’s theme will be flexible and gently guided by the work that is submitted, we encourage artists to have in mind the newness of the space, and “birth” of an art program that will grow from this “seed” space. Show us the surprise, the strangeness, the pains, awe, fear, or glory of growth in all its forms. Show us origins and undiscovered territories, in your vision.

The Space: 1400 sq ft experimental exhibition space, with natural light filtering in from both sides of the building through wall-to-wall windows. Concrete floors, 12 ft ceilings. The works will be installed in a caged area (image below) within a larger, open space that presents a unique opportunity for hanging work to be seen from front and back, and for viewers to be able to view the show from within and from outside its walls. The cage walls are 8 ft tall. The cage will be locked after business hours. Depending on the proposed works, the cage may be removed entirely if not incorporated into proposed pieces. Ceiling installation via the steel beams may be possible. Work involving sound must use headphones.


Submissions due: September 20th, 11:55 pm

Call for Submissions: Poetry, prose, art, photography





Submissions are currently open for our upcoming issues. Send us your best visual art (painting, drawing, photography, digital), writing (poetry, short fiction, flash fiction, essay), or hybrid forms. Here are our general submission guidelines:

1-8 visual art pieces - keep file size under 10mb; we will ask for higher resolution images if needed for publication; .jpeg file type preferred

1-6 poems (submit multiple poems in a single file)

1-3 pieces of short fiction (approx. 1,000-3,000 words) or flash fiction (under 1,000 words)

1-3 pieces of creative non-fiction/essay (total length approx. 3,000 words max.)


About Us: Wild Roof Journal is an online art & literary publication that will feature work from a wide range of creative people—painters, drawers, photographers, digital artists, writers, poets, and anyone else who is passionate about the creative process and self-expression.

Our primary goal is to provide a welcoming environment for artists to share their work. The people behind the scenes of Wild Roof are fellow artists—we know the amount of time and energy it takes to produce a finished piece, and the challenges of getting it out into the world for people to see. We want to offer opportunities for artists to connect with other artists as well as to promote their work to a larger audience.

We would like to keep our themes broad enough to offer a lot of room for interpretation. Our emphasis is on presenting the most engaging and thoughtful artwork possible, not on adhering to strict rules for subject matter or style. As a guideline for what we find interesting, here are a few points to consider:

Our aesthetic preferences are varied, but we tend to favor unique perspectives and experimentation. More traditional forms are appreciated as well; however, with wildness comes some level of the unpredictable and the weird… If you feel like you do things a bit differently than “the norm” (whatever that means to you), then you’re probably in the right place!

We tend to like work that is inquisitive and curious, at times mysterious, at times playful. So, if you find questions more interesting than answers, you’re on the right track for us!

Although we have categories for our submissions, we are absolutely interested in hybrid forms or work that defies easy categorization. If this describes your work, we encourage you to submit; if necessary, you may pick the category that’s most fitting and add a note to explain your work in more detail.


Note for all submissions:

Simultaneous submissions are accepted, but please withdraw pieces from consideration if they are accepted elsewhere. If you have a previously published piece that you feel deserves our attention (and you have retained the rights), please acknowledge the previous publication.

If your work is accepted, you agree to give Wild Roof Journal online publishing and archival rights; following publication, all rights revert back to the author/artist. We ask that you credit Wild Roof Journal if the work is published elsewhere in the future.
