Goetemann Artist Residency
Renowned artist and teacher, Gordon Goetemann founded the Residency program to benefit the artists who lived and worked in the Rocky Neck Art Colony. Originally called the Artist Residency Program it was renamed in his honor in 2010.Together with his wife, the artist Judith Steele Goetemann, they envisioned a program that would invite artists to share their methodology and creative ideas with the Rocky Neck Art Colony and the community at large.
That initial foundation led to the program that we are so proud of today. Because of the work of a devoted volunteer committee of artists, three months of the summer season are now dedicated to welcoming artists from across the globe to live and work for one month in this beautiful seaside environment.
Applications are juried each spring by our committee and three gifted artists are each awarded a one month residency term which includes a waterfront live-work studio space and access to a rich cultural community. Residents chosen are requested to host an opening and closing talk, and have a few open studio hours to engage with our community. We accept applications from January 1st to March 1st of each year.
The GAR committee is pleased to announce that the artists Alex Peyton-Levine and Ian Everard have been chosen as the 2017 Goetemann Artist Residents. Alex Peyton-Levine is the artist resident on Rocky Neck for the month of September, 2017. Then Ian Everard is the Goetemann Artist in Residency from October 1 to October 31st, 2017.
