92Y Is Resuming Its Jewelry Artist Residency
It is accepting applications from mature and emerging designers through April 1.
The acclaimed New York City institution hosts weekly jewelry classes, weekend workshops, and visiting artist and lecturers. Occupying the intersection of jewelry, art, and academia, the 92Y Jewelry Center serves approximately 1,400 students a year.
Its Artist in Residence program halted after the 2019 edition due to the pandemic.
It is set to resume this year, with the selected designer to be the fourth to enter the program.
Claudia Lepik, the 2019 Artist in Residence, said, “92Y has made me realize what I have always wanted to do—go big in my creations and not be afraid to do everything. I feel this place is really, really special.”
Geared toward jewelers and metalsmiths with a studio practice, either emerging or mature in their career, the self-directed residency will run Aug. 17-Sep. 18.
It allows designers to create new work or even conduct research while immersed in New York City’s cultures and creative energies.
The program provides housing in a studio apartment with kitchenette and private bathroom in the 92Y residence, 24-hour access to a private studio workspace, and travel expenses to and from New York City.
The resident will also share their work at a two-day lecture and workshop during the program’s final weekend, where they will meet with participating cultural institutions.
Applications and supporting materials are due April 1. The selected jeweler will be notified by April 27.
A panel of judges will select the resident based on artistic merit and potential, as well as how well the artist’s goals align with 92Y’s facilities and resources. Applications will also be judged on how New York City as an environment will affect and enhance their work.
Past judges have hailed from museums and auction houses, and include curators, artists, and educators.
Jonathan Wahl, director of the 92Y Jewelry Center, commented: “Now in its fourth year as the only residency devoted to jewelry artists and based in NYC, we welcome submissions from the United States and around the world.”
More information on the residency and application is available online.
