Lyons Wier Shashoua Artist in Residence

SPRING RESIDENCY 2013 (March – May 2013)

The Lyons Wier Shashoua Artist in Residence Award offers a three-month residency program to young artists whose artwork supports the gallery's mission to discover and champion the next generation of representational artists whose work within our vision of "Conceptual Realism."

The Lyons Wier Shashoua Artist in Residence Award is a multifaceted program offering one select artist an exclusive three-month studio space (non-living) located in the heart of Chelsea.

The residency is open to artists currently enrolled or recently graduated from an accredited MFA program. Depending on the candidate’s needs, Lyons Wier Gallery can offer associated gallery and/or artist studio internships. At the end of each year, the four resident artists from the program will be included in a special group exhibition hosted at Lyons Wier Gallery in New York.

Applications are now being reviewed for the Spring 2013 Residency which runs from March – May 2013.

To apply, please send via email a cover letter clearly stating how the space would be used during your tenure. Also include a current resume and link to your website only. (Emails containing large image files will not be opened.)

Only submissions that meet the Residency’s criteria will be reviewed and contacted for consideration.
