Add to Favorites Report Listing

Event History

This program was previously focused on ceramics, and only one artist was awarded a residency. In 2020, with so many artists with reduced opportunities, we decided to lower our application fee and broaden the scope and award up to three artists, working in any media. The exhibition will be featured on the PROTO Gallery Artsy page and all social media for PROTO Gallery and PROTO GOMEZ. One to three artists will be selected for the residency and solo exhibitions. Artists working in any media are eligible. There is no cost for the residency itself, however, artists are expected to acquire their own materials and consumables. If available, a larger private studio beyond what is provided can be rented on a monthly basis at a significant discount. Clay and metal can be purchased via Project Studios.

Call to artists for an artist residency.

This residency will take place November 15th, 2020 through January 15th, 2021

About the Residency

The Project Studios Residency is a work-only visual art residency that is focused on the production of new artwork within a well-equipped suite of studios. The artist or artists who are chosen for the residency get a solo exhibition at PROTO GOMEZ Gallery in NYC in Spring of 2021. The exhibit will be featured on the PROTO Gallery Artsy page and all social media for PROTO Gallery and PROTO GOMEZ. Up to 3 artists will be selected for the residency and solo exhibits. Artists working in any media are eligible.

Although the focus of the residency is to produce new artwork, in a mostly self-guided manner, there exists the opportunity of consultation and light instruction regarding safe and effective use of the tools and materials within the studios. Other opportunities for studio visits with independent curators and area gallerists, performed in-person or virtually, including Will Hutnick (Ortega Y Gasset Projects and Wassaic Project) Nicholas Cueva (Underdonk) Jen Hitchings (Studio Associate) and Krista Scenna (Ground Floor Gallery), as well as Enrico Gomez and Nick De Pirro of PROTO GOMEZ will be made available. Studio visits create a dialogue opportunity about the artist's work in the artist residency with individuals working in the emerging arts field.

The shop spaces at Project Studios have been configured for optimal social distancing. Depending on availability, selected artists may get an individual, shared, or common studio. Studio configuration will be developed on a case-by-case basis depending on need and availability, as well as, safety and comfort. The default space provided will be a college-style semi-private studio within one of the large studio suites. Masks are required. Use of the studios is subject to future directives from New Jersey state government and Hoboken city government related to COVID-19.

The studios are located a few blocks from the Hoboken PATH Train station, an easy connection to Lower Manhattan via various subway lines to WTC PATH, or from Brooklyn via the L Train to the 14th Street PATH Station. The studio also has free parking on-site.
