Add to Favorites Report Listing

The Lower East Side Printshop in New York offers emerging artists the opportunity for free studio residencies to facilitate the development of new work and advance their artistic careers. The application deadline for residencies starting on April 1, 2024, is March 1, 2024. The Printshop provides facilities for various printmaking techniques, including intaglio, relief, monotype, water-based screenprinting, digital processes, and other tool-utilizing methods.

Keyholders have independent access to the Printshop's shared Artists' Studio for six months and can engage with a vibrant community of peers. Artists from all disciplines are eligible, and while printmaking skills are not mandatory, some familiarity with the medium is recommended.

Participation is limited and competitive, with applications assessed by a panel of experienced artists, curators, and art professionals based on the quality of submitted artwork. Emerging artists lacking a studio are strongly encouraged to apply.


Keyholder Residency includes:

•          24/7, six-month access to a shared studio with printmaking facilities

•          $1,000 stipend

•          Free career development workshops and salons

•          Group exhibition opportunities

•          Consultation hours with Printshop’s staff



•          Only US residents may apply (Social Security number required).

•          Students enrolled in any degree program at the time of the residency are not eligible.

•          Keyholder Residencies are limited to emerging artists only. The Printshop defines emerging artists as under-recognized and under-represented artists in early stages in their careers.
