2012 COM.EN.ART Residency

2012 COM.EN.ART residencyThe Huyck Preserve is accepting applications for the 2012 COM.EN.ART program (PDF Application Link).

COM.EN.ART (COMmunity.ENviroment.ART) is an Artist-in-Residence program for natural history illustrators offered by the Huyck Preserve, a biological field station and 2000-acre nature preserve in the picturesque Hudson Valley hamlet of Rensselaerville, NY.

This two-week residency is designed to provide concentrated field experience and study for illustrators, as well as encourage interaction and discussion about nature among artists, with scientists and with the community. The artists contribute a finished piece of artwork and submit a sketch to the Preserve’s ongoing artists’ sketchbook in exchange for studio and rustic living quarters.

The residencies can take place in June between the 4th and the 24th or in August from the 17th to the 31st. Applications must be postmarked or emailed by March 15, 2012.

To learn more or to download an application, please visit our website: www.huyckpreserve.org or contact the Preserve at [email protected] or (518) 797-3440.
