ARTIST-IN-RESIDENCE WORKSPACE GRANT FOR NEW YORK EMERGING ARTISTS

Each year, up to five New York-based emerging artists are offered space, time and support to explore the production and exhibition of artists’ books and related work in year-long residencies.

The purpose of this program is to promote experimentation in making book art – thus artists from all disciplinary backgrounds are encouraged to apply. The Center especially encourages applications from artists of culturally diverse backgrounds.

Apply online now. Submissions must be received no later than October 15, 2015. 

SCHOLARSHIP FOR ADVANCED STUDIES IN BOOK ARTS

In 2015, the Center will award two to three scholarships to individuals who have demonstrated a commitment to the artistic endeavors in the book arts. The purpose of this program is to provide opportunities to emerging artists committed to developing careers in the book arts field, and to further the growth of this artistic profession.

The award includes a cash stipend plus a materials budget and 24 hour access to the Center’s printing and binding facilities for a full year. Artists also receive a tuition waiver for courses throughout the year, planned in conjunction with the staff.  Scholars will be required to complete an artist project by the end of the scholarship period, with an exhibition in our gallery space and public presentation the following autumn.

Apply online now. Submissions must be received no later than May 15, 2015.

ARTIST MEMBERSHIP

The Center for Book Arts provides artists with special services and opportunities in addition to the benefits of their membership category. Artist Members are included in the Artist Slide Registry, a resource devoted to artists working in the book format, which is used by curators, researchers, collectors, writers and other artists as a reference tool. They also enjoy the opportunity to submit works to The Center’s annual summer exhibition, a juried show which features works by members, as well as the opportunity to apply to be our Featured Artist.

Apply online now.
