Studio assistants are students who assist instructors and fellow students and are responsible for maintaining the school’s standards for studio operation. Assistants receive housing and meals, and pay only the $50 nonrefundable processing fee. Assistants are selected based on their knowledge of a working studio. In addition to 25–40 hours of work each week, studio assistants are required to work from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM on the day before and the day after their session, and must make travel arrangements which will allow them to meet this requirement. If you cannot meet this requirement, please do not apply. Many instructors select their own assistants; check the list below to determine availability of positions before applying.
To apply, check the studio assistant box on the application form, and include a letter explaining your experience in the field and your interest in the class, along with a résume, two letters of recommendation, five printed images of your work (maximum size 8-1/2 x 11, no slides or CDs), and the $50 processing fee. Applications must be received no later than February 15, and must include letters of reference. Applicants will be notified by April 1.
International students note: because the U.S. government considers our studio assistant program to be work for hire, students who are not U.S. citizens may not receive studio assistantships unless they have a work permit.

SCULPTURE SPACE, located in Utica, New York invites artists whose focus is sculpture to apply for a two-month residency between September 2013 and August 2014. Eighteen to twenty residents are selectively chosen each year; a stipend of $2000 is awarded to offset costs (dependent on funding).
We offer a 5500 square foot shared studio with specialized equipment in addition to two private studios. The Studio Manager provides ongoing assistance and technical expertise, the Office Manager and Executive Director are available to assist with any other special requirements. Basic understanding and communication skills in English are necessary. Three to four artists are in residence each month; artists are expected to stay for a full two months. Housing is provided a block away in a newly-renovated residence with private bedrooms, washer/dryer, television, free Wifi and shared living space for a small fee (free to New York State residents). Artists are responsible for materials, specialized tools and food. Bicycles are provided; transport for materials purchase and other needs is also available. Artists are required to acknowledge Sculpture Space when works made while in residence are subsequently exhibited or published and must provide high-quality images of works for the website, archives and publications. In addition, we request that artists consider donating an artwork to be sold at our annual CHAIRity art auction, held every September, benefitting Sculpture Space’s programming.
The studio and house are located in downtown Utica, situated in Central New York's scenic Mohawk Valley. Because of Sculpture Space’s long history and presence in Utica, the community is supportive and receptive to community-based site-specific work. Since 1976, Sculpture Space has helped to support the careers and studio practice of over 400 national and international artists from around the world. As desired, artists and arts professionals (including curators and writers) are invited for informal studio visits. The collaborative environment of the studio and the communal aspects of the residence helps foster dialogue, exchange of ideas, creative experimentation and both personal and professional connections. In addition to the CHAIRity fundraiser in September, the public is invited to Works in Progress receptions (held every few months); other visits are arranged by appointment.
Residents are selected by a Review Committee. A guest juror is also included, this year: Tracy Adler, Director of the new Wellin Museum of Hamilton College. Artists are notified in March. Primary criteria for selection are simple: artists are chosen based on the quality, originality and potential of their work.
