Art Omi International Artists’ Residency

The Art Omi International Artists’ Residency offers visual artists three-week residencies in the month of July. The Arts Center is located approximately two and a half hours north of New York City in the historic Hudson River Valley. Artists are provided with room and board for the three-weeks. Studio facilities are set among the 300 acres of rolling green hills. The program includes a critic-in-residence who facilitates an ongoing dialogue in studio visits, as well as day visits from dealers, curators, artists and critics from New York City. The residency session concludes with a major exhibit at the Art Omi Center, to which members of the art world from both upstate New York and New York City are invited. More than 1,000 people attend this event, which includes a special dinner, each year.

Artists pay for travel, materials, and donate a work of art created during the residency to the Art Omi Foundation Collection.
1. Six (6) 35mm color slides for carousel projector. CDs, or video tapes or DVDs for new media artists only whose work is time based or kinetic and cannot be seen well in slide format. Any work that moves or is based in video or film can be viewed on CD, DVD or video. All 2-D and 3-D work that is still will only be viewed in slide format.
