Trestle Residencies are professional development programs that aim to provide space, community, & opportunities for emerging artists. These goals are achieved through six to twelve month residencies. The Trestle Artist Residency (Open Studio or Private) comes with access to affordable studio space, and includes monthly advisor meetings with one of three advisors Jason Stopa, Adrienne Tarver, Christina Kelly, or Jennifer Schmidt. Each of the twelve meetings include formal critiques, studio visits with NYC curators and art world professionals, and opportunities to exhibit resident artwork curated by prominent guest curators. Visiting Artist Residents receive a free studio.

Former residents who have completed the program have gone on to do great things. 100% of Trestle Residency Alumni have had the opportunity to show their artwork in group or solo exhibitions. Most seeking further career advancement have gone on to be awarded professional opportunities such as acceptance to graduate school, participations in group or solo exhibitions at other galleries, and/or have acquired artist visas. Many have gone on to work with other artists in community building in some capacity. Examples include: several alumni have attended other residencies, started art collectives, and otherwise become leaders in artist-run spaces.  Click here to see a list of Trestle Residency Alumni and what some of them are up to post-residency. Please note: we do not provide housing.
