All of our residency applications are evaluated by our review panel, our Co-Directors, and our Director of Artistic Programming. Our panelists are established artists, curators, gallery directors, and writers (among other things). Most of them have passed through Wassaic themselves, and all of them are dedicated to giving emerging artists the space to explore and expand their practices.

Residents are selected based on the quality of their work, commitment to their practice, and ability to interact positively with the community at large.
