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 second week, the first week will overlap with the 2024 AANYAA Fieldstones Retreat.

We are pleased to announce that the 2024 Fieldstones Residency has been awarded to Angela Gram. 

$10 application fee through Venmo (see application link for details); there is NO participation fee for this residency. Applications are due April 16, 2024; notification May 1. The AANYAA Fieldstones Residency runs from August 12 - 22, 2024 with arrival check-in after 3pm August 12.


2024 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.
