Rush Arts Galleries

Established in 2011, the Artist in Residence Program at Rush Arts Gallery provides a recent graduate of a MFA program or the equivalent of with a summer studio space in Chelsea, NYC. With the provided studio space, artists can build on a body of work and invite mentors or colleagues in to discuss their artistic development and visual aesthetics. The residence program culminates with a solo pop-up exhibition at the Rush Arts Gallery Project Space. Candidates for the AIR program are hand selected by the Gallery Director with recommendations from our Rush Arts Gallery Artist Advisory Board.
