Guild Hall has issued a call for artists for Guild House AIR, the art museum's Artist-in-Residence program. Now in its second year, Guild House AIR provides four emerging artists with two months living space, a stipend and access to mentorship through Guild Hall’s Academy of the Arts (an association of accomplished and prominent creative individuals) as well as introductions to the cultural community of The Hamptons.

The residency is eight weeks and will be held from March 11 to May 7, 2017. Four artists will be selected from the following disciplines: visual arts, performing arts, literary arts, and curatorial and/or critical studies.

Applications are now being accepted online from November 1 to December 1, 2016. Artist accepted into the residency will be notified on December 15, 2016. To apply, click here.

The residency is open to all emerging artists 21 years of age and over. Candidates need to demonstrate a level of professionalism and provide samples of their work, an artist statement and a CV. There is a $20 application fee.

Guild House AIR was founded as a means to extend Guild Hall’s mission to foster the artistic spirit of the East End. By bringing emerging artists to the region and providing a foundation for individual development, Guild House AIR encourages the next generation to contribute to the creative environment of the region. Integral to the program is the opportunity for collaboration, conversations, and partnerships with regional artists as well as with the East End’s many cultural institutions.

Here are a few handy things to know before applying:

Four (4) Residents will each have a private room in Guild House, a historic residence adjacent to Guild Hall in East Hampton, N.Y.

Each resident will receive a stipend for expenses and eight Hampton Jitney bus tickets each, which provides four round trips to New York City from The Hamptons.

Residents will present and discuss their work in Guild Hall’s John Drew Theater at the conclusion of the residency.

During the residency, artists are required to be on site for at least four days per week.

Residents are expected to provide their own transportation to New York City from their home city.

Residents will be provided some meals but the majority of meals are at each resident’s expense.

Guild House AIR will attempt to find an appropriate workspace for each resident but cannot guarantee this.

No companions are permitted to reside at Guild House.
