Residency Programme since: 2014
Description of Organisation:

Guttenberg Arts is dedicated to increasing opportunities for artists that encourage artistic evolution while creating cultural experiences for the community that promote creative thinking. Since 2014, we have promoted the visual arts through providing practicing artists with the space and time to develop their work, engage with the public, and expand their community.

Participating artists benefit from increased career opportunities and public exposure through peer collaboration and promotion to curators and collectors in the tri-state area.

We enable artists to explore new techniques in our studio (a 4,500 sf facility for the visual arts accommodating working in 2-D & 3-D including printmaking and ceramics) and to share their experiences through artistic mentorship, creating new opportunities for artistic evolution. Supporting Guttenberg Arts will provide artists the space and time they need to develop work that represents the uniqueness of their voice and the platform to share it.

Guttenberg Arts hosts a dynamic array of public programing that includes, free community workshops for all ages, panel talks and artist lectures providing diverse perspectives and actively engaging a range of audiences inspiring new dialogs. Guttenberg Arts aims to be a cultural cornerstone that serves the arts and artists within the community to create meaningful experiences.
