NARS Foundation Open Calls & Professional Development

NARS Foundation International Artist Residency Program

The NARS Foundation offers a residency program that supports emerging and mid-career artists as well as artists with established national and/or international reputations for whom a change of environment may offer refreshment and inspiration. The program offers full and partial fellowships for a minimum of one month and up to twelve months. The number of awards and the amount may vary depending on sponsorship available at the time of application.

The NARS International Artist Residency Program offers professional development through panel discussions, lectures, workshops, artist talks and artist salons scheduled throughout the year. In addition, regularly scheduled studio visits with NYC art professionals offer the artists-in-residence the chance to meet with curators, critics, art historians, and gallerists to discuss their work in an intimate setting. Furthermore, open studios and group exhibitions at the NARS Gallery provide the opportunity to share new work and works in progress with the general public. Artists-in-residence are also expected to interact with the local community through public programs and community outreach programs offered in collaboration with other local not-for-profit organizations.

NARS currently offers 6-month residencies for U.S. based applicants and 3-month and 6-month residencies for international applicants. Only U.S. based artists are eligible for the Full and Partial Residency Fellowships at this time. International artists who need funding to cover the program fee, travel, materials, and accommodations should apply to other sources for this support.
