Goetemann Residency in Gloucester, MA: a unique opportunity for artists
Be part of the next generation of 21st century artists to build on the foundations set by Edward Hopper, Milton Avery, Nel Blaine, Winslow Homer, and many others.
Rocky Neck Art Colony is currently accepting applications for the 2012 Goetemann Artist in Residency Program at the Rocky Neck Art Colony (www.Rockyneckartcolony.org). Three visual artists will be selected to be in residence for three one month residencies during the summer season from May to October of 2012.
Rocky Neck sits like a jewel in the large fishing harbor of Gloucester, MA. With rafted fishing vessels sitting below the stacked houses of surrounding hills, it has provided the visual drama and complex beauty to draw America's greatest artists over the last 150 years to the oldest working art colony in the United States. Residents accepted will receive a prime live-work studio both private and on a wharf right in the midst of it all.
Choices for subject matter are endless. Interpretive possibilities abound. We encourage applications from artists interested in the naturalistic phenomena of this place s well as from those on the cutting edge of contemporary thought and exploration.
