Find Inspiration in the Forest
The Beaver Brook Artist Residency is an opportunity for an artist seeking a space of solitude to further their studio practice while finding inspiration from the natural landscapes of our 55-acre woodland preserve. Applications to the Residency are accepted and approved on a rolling basis. Applications are accepted online only.
The Artist Residency program is available to all artists in any medium. Applicants may be emerging or established artists on a regional, national or international level. Beaver Brook will provide living quarters and local transportation for the recipient. In exchange, residents create a site-specific sculpture or project or exhibition, with at least one mutually agreed to work of art left to Beaver Brook.
Art materials, travel and other expenses are not included. There is a car available for limited use if a current US or International Driver’s License is presented. Recipients will also be asked to interact with the staff and public in some way, which may include but not limited to participating in the development or the making of the work, supporting ongoing staff-initiated projects, public workshops and/or lectures. Beaver Brook and the recipient will reach an agreement together regarding the work to be donated and the proposed public interaction.
Nestled on the Delaware River and the Pennsylvania border, Barryville is just a two hour drive from the City. It’s a really small town, but all the necessities are just a short trip from the property. Small grocery with beer, farmers market, antiquing galore and a couple bars.
