Every year Women’s Studio Workshop honors an outstanding woman artist as part of our annual fundraising gala. Proceeds from this fabulous event go towards funding a studio residency for an artist hand-picked by our honoree from our pool of yearly applicants. Last fall WSW was pleased to honor world re-known painter and printmaker Joan Snyder, whose work over the last 40 years has been an inspiration to many of us. Past honorees included Judy Pfaff and Mary Frank.

The 2011 Joan Snyder Artists Residency Grant is a 6 week residency for artists working in the printmaking studios and includes a $2100 stipend, $500 toward materials used during the residency, a travel stipend up to $250, housing and unlimited studio use. The selected artist will be provided with technical advice and assistance in production. The Joan Snyder Residency awardee will be chosen from this years Studio Residency applications. Deadline April 1, 2011.
