The Alumni Association of the New York Academy of Art is is pleased to offer a RESIDENCY at Fieldstones to one Academy alum artist.
The AANYAA Fieldstones RESIDENCY is a summer escape in the northern Hudson Valley exclusively for one graduate of the New York Academy of Art. Spend two weeks focusing on their artwork in the peace of a 100-acre rural property complete with mountain views and a creek with a swimming hole. Bring hiking boots, marshmallows for the fire, and art supplies as you double down on your studio practice in a pastoral environment. The artist will be in solo residence the first week, the second week will overlap the 2023 AANYAA Fieldstones Retreat.
The juror for 2023 is Diana Corvelle, a figurative artist born in New York. She received her MFA in Drawing from the New York Academy of Art and her BFA in Illustration from the Rhode Island School of Design. Diana works primarily in gouache on paper, layering small cross-hatching marks to build realistic color and form. She has shown in exhibitions across the country and internationally, including solo shows The Delicacy of Memory: Studies on Paper at Eden Rock, St. Barth's, and YES ALL WOMEN at Dacia Gallery in New York, NY. Her public works include large scale and commemorative projects at South Nassau Community Hospital and the Rockville Centre Public Library. She curated the group exhibition of fine art in lockets - Love It, Locket, Leave It - for Island Weiss Gallery in New York, which was later exhibited at the National Museum of Women in the Arts store in Washington, D.C. Diana currently lives and works in the Bay Area.
$10 application fee through Venmo (see application link for details); there is NO participation fee for this residency. Applications are due May 10, 2023; notification May 15. The AANYAA Fieldstones Residency runs from June 11 - June 26, 2023, with arrival check-in after 3pm June 11.
2023 RESIDENCY lodging will be in a delightful "Chicory Barn" situated less than 100 ft. from a creek which you will hear all night long. It also comes with access to 100 acres and walking trails. As a "glamping" barn, it is very rustic: there is a solar shower and an outside privy near the barn privately nestled in a patch of tall bamboo... it's much like camping but with a few more comfortable amenities like a bed with sheets, a little refrigerator, fan, and heater, a camp cooking stove, dishes, a firepit and wood.
The selected alum will have access to Fieldstones’ artist studios in a large barn onsite. Please bear in mind that, despite Fieldstones’ many amenities (which include WIFI and hot water bathroom access), the location and lodgings are rustic. Upon acceptance, the selected alum will receive more information regarding what to pack for Fieldstones, as well as travel directions and info on local grocery stores.
The resident artist is responsible for their own transportation. Fieldstones is 2.5 hours north of New York City in the Hudson Valley, 40 minutes southwest of Albany. Directions will be provided to the resident artist upon acceptance.
The resident artist is responsible for purchasing and preparing their own meals at Fieldstones' kitchen.
There are no refunds/rescheduling; applicants will assume this when applying. Fieldstones prohibits smoking in or around barns, house, or tents; no pets allowed; and the resident artist must be fully vaccinated for Covid-19.
