I just received an email with a long listing of artist opportunities, so I thought I'd share a few. When I see residencies like this posted, I think of the thousands of artists who aren't selected each year.

Many organizations (such as Smack Mellon) started as small, half-assed, artist-run programs that have grown into formidable grant-funded non-profits.
NARS International Artist Residency Program provides national and international artists with the opportunity to produce new work while engaging with the vibrant arts community in New York City. Artists-in-residence have access to an individual studio space and various professional development programs. Residents have an opportunity to share and present their work through artist talks, workshops, and lectures and receive studio visits by prominent New York City curators, critics and gallerists. The NARS Foundation seeks applications on two levels. The first level includes emerging and mid-career artists, for whom appointments as residents may make a significant impact on their careers. The second level consists of artists with established national and/or international reputations for whom a change of environment may offer refreshment and inspiration. Deadline April 6, 2012 Application fee: $35

WAC is accepting applications for six-week residencies through February 17.
