Goetemann Artist Residency
The Goetemann Artist Residency welcomes artists from across the globe to live and work for one month on Rocky Neck’s beautiful seaside environment. The Residency is a solo studio space for your personal exploration.
Renowned artist and teacher, Gordon Goetemann founded the Residency 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, the summer season is 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 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.
