Two Coats of Paint Residency Program:
In 2015, Two Coats of Paint began a small residency program for artists. The program's goal is simply to provide a short-term space(up to one week) where artists based outside the NYC area can hang work and have studio visits with curators, other artists, and gallerists. The residency is by invitation only because space is extremely limited. Read more about the project here.
