Women’s Studio Workshop: Artists’ Book Residency Grant

Deadline: November 15, 2012 (POSTMARK) & (ONGOING)

Artists’ Book Residency Grant
Women’s Studio Workshop

Rosendale, NY

The artists’ book residency grant is designed to enable artists to produce a limited edition book work at WSW. Working intensively in our studios for six to eight weeks, artists print and bind their own books. WSW technical assistance includes training on new equipment, techniques and materials, and assistance with production.

The grant includes a stipend of $350/week, materials up to $750, access to all studios, travel costs up to $250 within the Continental US, and housing. Residency occurs 6-18 months after application. Projects are chosen by a jury of outside artists and curators. We encourage an edition size no larger than 100 and no smaller than 50. WSW has developed a series of archive and exhibition opportunities for the books. The contract stipulates 10% of the edition (or ten books) for WSW archives, exhibition, and display copies; 10% of the edition for the artist; and 80% of the edition for general marketing.

The artist has the option of collaborating with WSW on the marketing of the books for a 50% commission fee. WSW artists’ books are held in over 300 collections world-wide, with repositories of all the artists’ books published by WSW held at: Indiana University (Bloomington), Rochester Institute of Technology, Stanford University, University of Delaware, University of Michigan (Ann Arbor), Vassar College, Virginia Commonwealth University, and Yale University.

Postmark Deadline: November 15
Notification Date: Applicants will be notified via email by March 1
