The Women's Studio Workshop has several fall deadlines for ceramic artists.
WSW is a non-profit visual arts organization located in Rosendale NY,
dedicated to providing professional opportunities for individual women
artists at every stage in their artistic career. Application forms and
program descriptions are available on our webpage


Clay Fellowship, 3 - 6 consecutive weeks
Clay fellowships are awarded through a jury process. Fellows are partially
subsidized to receive on-site housing and unlimited access to the studio. In
addition to working on their own projects, artists can choose to pay their
fellowship fees through an exchange, potters who will make 50 glazed bowls
or 100 bisque bowls will receive a 50% discount off the fellowship fee (i.e.
the bowls plus $200 will cover a two-week residency). Bowls made during the
residency will be used in our annual fundraiser.
Residency Dates: January - June 2009


Ceramic Internship, 2 months
This internship is designed specifically for young artists interested in
functional ceramics.
The Ceramics Intern works closely with WSW's Clay Program Coordinator
preparing for our Annual Chili Bowl Fundraiser. During this mid-winter
event, WSW warms up our local community by presenting over 800 hand made
vessels for sale. The bowls and tumblers are filled with chili, cornbread,
and lemonade donated by area restaurants. The revenue from this community
event goes into the ceramics program to buy and maintain equipment and
subsidize fellowships.The Ceramics Intern has access to WSW studios in their
non-working time and is encouraged to create work. This opportunity also
offers a private room in a neighboring house and a stipend of $300/month
Residency Dates: January - February 2009

We look forward to reviewing your applications, and please help us spread
this announcement by forwarding it along
to artists who may be interested.
