THE TWO COATS OF PAINT RESIDENCY / Over the years, intimate, artist-run residency programs have helped move my work forward in unexpected ways. In 2015, grateful for the residency experiences I had at Peter Dudek’s Bascom Lodge , Austin Thomas’s Pocket Utopia, Helen Chellin’s Red Cinder Creativity Center, and Simon Draper’s Habitat for Artists, I introduced an artist residency at Two Coats of Paints’ HQ in Brooklyn. The residency 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. For the time being, because space is extremely limited, the residency is by nomination and invitation only.
