SOHO20 Gallery Chelsea / Artists Residency Program
DEADLINE: October 30th, 2012
SOHO2O Gallery Chelsea is a non-profit artist run gallery that has been promoting the work of women artists since 1973 through gallery exhibitions and public programming. As part of our continued commitment to the arts we are introducing a 3-month studio residency program for visual artists.
The studio space is located at 547 West 27thStreet, in the heart of the Chelsea art community of New York City. The setting offers a community of art professionals and commercial as well as non-profit galleries and art spaces. The studio's proximity to the contemporary art center makes it a convenient place to see renowned exhibitions in the neighborhood, as well as arranging studio visits with gallerists, critics and curators.
What the residency offers:
