OPPORTUNITIES AT WOMEN'S STUDIO WORKSHOP
WSW is an artist-run studio located in Rosendale, New York, 90 miles north
of New York City. Facilities include printmaking, papermaking, artist's
books, photography, letterpress, offset and ceramic.  Our programs are
designed to support artists in the various stages of their careers.  To
that end we offer grant and fellowship opportunities, intensive workshops,
internships and studio rentals.

ARTIST'S FELLOWSHIPS
Fellowship opportunities are available in water-based screen printing,
intaglio, photography, papermaking, letterpress and ceramic.  Fellowship
awards are designed to provide artists with concentrated work time to
explore new ideas in a dynamic and cooperative community of women artists,
in a rural environment.  Fellows have unlimited 24-hour access to the
studio of their choice, and may work in two- to six-week sessions from
September through June. Fellowship awards subsidize a portion of the studio
operating expenses.  The cost to fellowship recipients is $200 per week
plus materials, (about one-fifth the actual cost of the fellowship), and
includes on-site housing.  Fellowships are awarded through a jury process.

SPECIAL OPPORTUNITY FOR CLAY ARTISTS
A limited number of special scholarships are available to potters who can
trade bowls for time. Each year, WSW hosts a Chili Bowl Fiesta fund raiser,
and to help with bowl production we are offering fellowships at half
price.  Fifty glazed bowls or 100 bisqued bowls plus $200 covers a two-week
residency.  Please indicate on your application that you are interested in
this opportunity.

TO APPLY: Send a resume, six to ten slides of your work, purpose of
residency, proposed dates and length of fellowship, studio requested and an
SASE for return of materials.  An application is available on our Web site,
www.wsworkshop.org, or call (845) 658-9133.

DEADLINE: Applications must be postmarked by November 1, 2001 for March
June, 2002 fellowships.  Mail to: Women's Studio Workshop, PO Box 489,
Rosendale, NY 12472.

UPS/FED EX address: 722 Binnewater Lane, Rosendale, NY  12472.

ARTISTS' BOOKS RESIDENCY GRANTS Artists' Books Residency Grants enable
artists to produce a limited-edition bookwork at WSW. Working intensively
in our studios for six weeks, selected artists are involved in all aspects
of the design and production of their piece.  The grant includes a stipend
of $1,800 for six weeks, materials up to $450 and access to all
studios.  On-site housing is provided for visiting artists. Each artist is
responsible for meals, but on weekdays, everyone gathers for a pot-luck lunch.

ARTISTS' BOOKS PRODUCTION GRANTS Production Grants are for artists working
off-site.  The grant is designed to assist artists working in their own
studios with the publication of smaller scale projects.  Funds cover
production costs up to $1,000.  This grant is not intended for reissuing
already published material.  If used as partial funding for a larger
project, proof of the additional funds will be required.

TO APPLY: Applicants should submit a one-page description of the project,
the media to be used to print the book, number of pages, page size, edition
size (at least 100 copies preferred), a structural dummy, materials budget,
resume, 6 to 10 slides of recent work and an S.A.S.E. for return of
materials.  An application is available on our Web site,
www.wsworkshop.org, or call (845) 658-9133. DEADLINE: The application must
be postmark by November 15, 2001 and notification will be made by February
1, 2002.  Mail to: Women's Studio Workshop, PO Box 489, Rosendale, NY
12472. UPS/FED EX address: 722 Binnewater Lane, Rosendale, NY  12472.
