About the Residency

The Project Studios Residency is a work-only visual art residency focused on production of new artwork within a very well-equipped suite of studios. The artist or artists chosen for the residency will be awarded a solo exhibition at PROTO GOMEZ Gallery in New York City in Spring of 2021. The exhibition will be featured on the PROTO Gallery Artsy page and all social media for PROTO Gallery and PROTO GOMEZ. One to three artists will be selected for the residency and solo exhibitions. Artists working in any media are eligible.

Although the focus of the residency is to produce new artwork in a mostly self-guided manner, there will the availability of consultation and light instruction regarding safe and effective use of the tools and materials within the studios as well as opportunities for studio visits with independent curators and area gallerists, performed in-person or virtually, including Will Hutnick (Ortega Y Gasset Projects and Wassaic Project) Nicholas Cueva (Underdonk) Jen Hitchings (Studio Associate) and Krista Scenna (Ground Floor Gallery), as well as Enrico Gomez and Nick De Pirro of PROTO GOMEZ. These studio visits are intended as a dialogue opportunity about the work being created in the residency with individuals working in the emerging arts field.

The shop spaces at Project Studios are very large and have been configured for optimal social distancing. Project Studios is an active creative community, so depending on availability, artists selected for the residency may be provided with an individual, shared, or common studio. Studio configuration will be developed on a case-by-case basis depending on need and availability as well as safety and comfort. The default space provided will be a college-style semi-private studio within one of the large studio suites. Masks are required. Use of the studios is subject to futuredirectives from New Jersey state government and Hoboken city government related to COVID-19.

Previously, this program was focused on ceramics, and only one artist was awarded a residency. For 2020, when many artists have seen opportunities significantly reduced, we decided to reduce our application fee and broaden the scope and award up to three artists, working in any media.

There is no cost for the residency itself, however artists are expected to acquire their own materials and consumables. If available, a lager private studio beyond what is provided can be rented on a monthly basis at a significant discount. Clay and metal can be purchased via Project Studios.

The studios are located a few blocks from the Hoboken PATH Train station, an easy connection to Lower Manhattan via various subway lines to WTC PATH, or from Brooklyn via the L Train to the 14th Street PATH Station. The studio also has free parking on-site.
