For the first time in two years, the 92Y’s Jewelry Center in New York City is accepting applications for its Jewelry Artist Residency.
The residency runs Aug. 17–Sept. 18, 2022. It aims to help “cutting-edge, emerging and established jewelry artists to develop their work in the multifaceted New York City art scene.” This is the fourth time it is being offered.
The application deadline is April 1, and winners will be notified April 27. Established as well as emerging artists are encouraged to apply.
The Jewelry Artist Residency recipient is chosen by rotating panel of experts and professionals in the arts and humanities. Past years’ juries included artists, curators, and museum professionals from major cultural institutions and auction houses in New York City.
The Jewelry Artist Residency includes: accommodation in a studio apartment with private bathroom and kitchenette in the 92Y Residence; access to a 24-hour private studio working space; travel expenses to and from New York City; the opportunity for an artist to share their distinct aesthetic, technical, or design style with the New York City design community through a two-day lecture and workshop at the 92Y Jewelry Center during the last weekend of the residency; and meetings with participating cultural institutions.
“92Y has made me realize what I have always wanted to do—go big in my creations and not be afraid to do everything,” said 2019’s resident artist, Claudia Lepik, in a statement, “I feel this place is really, really special.”
The application and guidelines can be seen here.
