Artist Residency in the U.S.

The Sam & Adele Golden Foundation for the Arts 

New Berlin, New York
The Golden Foundation Residency Program is specifically designed to assist the professional artist in discovering and exploring the many materials and technologies available today. Through the Golden Foundation, residents will have the unparalleled opportunity to work with dozens of unique materials and technologies.

Overview Our residencies are based on the exploration of innovative uses in waterborne materials and oil paint technology.  Residents will discover materials that will challenge the way they think about paint. They will be introduced to materials that will open up new methods and new channels for expression and the creative process.

The Golden Foundation will be offering six Exploratory Residency Program sessions this year. Each session will last four weeks, with up to three artists per session.

2020 Residency Sessions: March 1 – March 28, April 13 – May 10, May 17 – June 13, June 21 – July 18, August 9 – September 5, September 13 – October 10
