Kirkland Art Center accepting applications for Artist-in-Residence program

CLINTON — Kirkland Art Center, 9 1/2 E. Park Row, has announced open applications for its 2023 Artist-in-Residence program, a partnership with local retreat and residency space The Garret on the Green.

Applications will be open on both the Kirkland Art Center and the Garret on the Green websites through Nov. 13.

Three emerging artists will be selected for solo week-long residencies in January and February.  This year, one of these three residencies will be dedicated to a writerIn addition, a residency in May will cater specifically to musicians, including a promoted concert at the KAC’s historic venue.

All selected artists stay at the Garret on the Green and work in a studio space a few doors down at the Kirkland Art Center. They also receive a stipend of $500 to support their travel and creative work while in residence. 

“We added the Community Music Residency last year in memory of two long-time volunteers in the KAC live music program, Ginger Parker and Tom Bell,” said Damhnait McHugh, president of the Kirkland Art Center board. “This year, in response to strong interest in previous calls, we are specifically targeting creative writers for one of the residencies.”

Every year, residents receive a warm welcome from the village of Clinton as well, with donated meals and gifts from Nola’s, The Cremeria, Utica Coffee and Almost Local. 

“These programs began to support emerging artists who often face time constraints and barriers to institutional access, and we try to improve them a little every year,” Nora Revenaugh, co-owner of The Garret on the Green and member of local band The Boom Chickens said. “Having a day job or caregiving responsibilities keeps so many talented artists out of programs that require longer stays or a large financial commitment, and these short, funded residencies are designed with those artists in mind.”
