The Alumni Association of the New York Academy of Art is is pleased to offer a RESIDENCY to one NYAA alum artist at Fieldstones.

The AANYAA Fieldstone RESIDENCY is a late summer escape in the northern Hudson Valley exclusively for one alum of the New York Academy of Art to 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 AANYAA Fieldstones RESIDENCY runs from September XX - ZZ, 2021, with arrival check-in after 5pm September XX. There is no participation fee for this residency.


An independent, non-AANYAA-affiliated juror will select the alum for the Residency. The Juror for 2021 is Daniel Maidman. Applicants may expect to hear back regarding their acceptance by DATE.  

There is a $10 application fee.
RESIDENCY Applications are due by August XX, 2021.

Fieldstones is located on a bucolic rural property situated on 100 acres in the northern Hudson Valley, 2.5 hours north of New York City, and 40 minutes southwest of Albany. The resident artist is responsible for their own transportation.

Residency lodging will be in a room in one of the farmhouses (examples, below). The selected alum will have access to Fieldstones’ artist studios in a large barn onsite.

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 the cost of their own transportation and food; the resident artist is responsible for purchasing and preparing their own meals at Fieldstones' kitchen.

There are NO REFUNDS. Refunds are not granted for inclement weather during their Residency. Applicants will assume this risk when applying for the Fieldstones Residency.
