Art Omi: Artists 2023

Associated Residency Program

Art Omi: Artists invites artists from around the world, representing a wide diversity of artistic styles and practices, to gather in rural New York to experiment, collaborate and share ideas. Concentrated time for creative work is balanced with the stimulation of cultural exchange and critical appraisal.

Art Omi: Artists nurtures deep creative and professional connections in a vibrant, social residency. Artists are provided with a private studio, shared living quarters, and meals at no cost, but are responsible for their travel and material expenses, unless they are eligible for travel grants as specified in our fellowships guidelines. Each session, two critics/curators are invited to participate as Critic Emeritus and Critic/Curator-in-Residence. They both lead discussions, help shape the Visitors program and make individual studio visits throughout the duration of the residency session. Click here to read more.

  • Art Omi accepts applications from self-taught professional artists. Having received a degree or certification, or having formally studied art are not requirements for Art Omi: Artists residency. However, resumes/cv must reflect at least three years of professional experience as an exhibiting artist.
  • Applications must be submitted in the English language. Please make sure all application materials including your resume/CV, and your biography are in English.
  • If you work on a team, please fill one application ONLY. Only one person will be the contact person for the TEAM application. Please make sure to mark on the resume ALL of the names of the artists being part of the group. The entire application must reflect work done by the team, not individual works. One time collaborators must submit two independent applications.
  • Art Omi Alumni are not eligible for a return residency. In order to give as many artists as possible the chance for a residency at Art Omi, we ask that alumni do not apply for a return residency. We appreciate your spreading the word to artists who have not been to Art Omi yet.

  • Resume/CV reflecting at least 3 years of professional experience as artist

Incomplete applications will not be processed, and unfortunately we are unable to notify applicants about the status of their application until after the selection has been made. Good luck with your application!

Art Omi continues to monitor the Covid-19 pandemic. All programs require residents to be fully vaccinated and boosted by the start of their Residency program to be eligible for participation.
