The Arts Center of Yates County Artist in Resident program supports artists and enhances their creativity by providing uninterrupted time for work, reflection, and interaction in a lakeside setting of great natural beauty.
The program gives dedicated artists time for creative development and exploration. Beyond providing artists with a 10 day stay in a cottage by the lake, to focus on their work, we offer a unique taste of life in rural New York.
We seek individuals whose work reflects innovative thinking, a depth of creative exploration and the potential for significant future accomplishments. For those who qualify, we provide living accommodations, studio space, uninterrupted time, and access to the beauty of the Finger Lakes.
There is no monetary cost to the artist for their stay though daily food and drink are not provided. The artist is asked to donate a piece of work representative of his/her style or of their Sunny Point experience to the Art Center and their members.
We are offering two ten day sessions. The first one is June 27-July 6, 2015 and the second is September 5-14, 2015. More information about this program can be found at www.ycac.org
