A Resource for Performing Artists, Scholars and Audiences.
Contemporary Artists Center
The Contemporary Artists Center has recently opened its newest residency program on the campus of the Woodside National Historic Register Site in Troy, NY. Two neo-gothic stone church buildings now house our artist program and welcome artists from all over the U.S. and abroad.
The CAC is located 2.5 hours north of NYC, and is currently accepting applications for the Fall season.
DEADLINE August 1
The CAC focuses on emerging and early career artists and accepts applicants who offer quality in their art and encourages diversity of style, medium (2-D, 3-D, 4-D) and concepts.
Our facility features high-ceiling, adaptable studio space open 24 hours a day with some specialized studio facilities, exhibition opportunities, weekly critiques, and free access to all CAC events. The living area includes lofted bedrooms, living room / library, dining room, and kitchen & bath.
The residency program offers artists the time and support to create new work and fosters an environment that encourages creativity, dialog, and experimentation.
Fellowships available. All residency artists receive some level of financial assistance.
