Statement of Purpose
To provide dedicated time and space in which artists may pursue their work
within a community whose singular purpose is to inspire, support and honor excellence and creativity.
Acceptance into a two-week residency session at Golden Apple Art Residency is determined through a jury process and requires a written letter of intent (what work do you propose to do while an artist-in-residence), a current resume/curriculum vitae, a CD of recent images or professional website address, and a completed application form which can be downloaded from the website www.goldenapplestudio.com. The deadline for submission of an application is March 31 prior to the summer you wish to attend. Notification of your acceptance into a residency session will be made within 30 days of receipt of your application.
Following notification of your acceptance into a residency session, you will receive a commitment form which must be signed and returned within 10 days along with a deposit check for $300. This deposit holds your reservation as artist-in-residence and will be deducted from the cost of your residency. It also serves as a commitment on your behalf to attend the residency. Therefore, the deposit is not refundable.
The total cost to attend a two-week residency program (which includes all private lodging, studio accommodations and meals) is $2500. Partial scholarships are awarded by Golden Apple Art Residency to a limited number of qualified artists and all applicants are automatically considered for partial funding by Golden Apple on a first-come basis. Grants from other sources as well as professional development funding may also be used to cover costs. Payment in full must be received 30 days prior to your scheduled residency. Travel costs and arrangements and the cost of art supplies are the responsibility of the artist.
