Location: Columbus, New York
Mission: In 2012 the Sam & Adele Golden Foundation for the Arts opened its doors to a one-of a-kind artist residency for artists working in paint. In the beautiful rolling hills of central New York and just several hundred yards from the Golden Artist Colors manufacturing facility, a 19th century barn has been transformed into a 21st century artist residency, with large studio spaces and private residency apartments. Artists-in-residence will participate in a completely unique opportunity to explore the widest, most innovative range of materials and technology available today for professional artists working with paint.
Our residencies are based on the exploration of innovative uses in waterborne materials and oil paint technology. Residents will discover materials that will challenge the way they think about paint. They will be introduced to materials that will open up new methods and new channels for expression and the creative process.
Cost: The goal of the Golden Foundation financial assistance is to ensure that all artists who have been selected into the residency program can attend, regardless of their financial status. An artist may receive a partial or fully funded residency from the Golden Foundation. The residency includes all paint materials and technical services.
Application Fee: $30 fee
Number of Artists: Up to 3 artists at a time
Accommodations: Over 30 years ago as they sat at their kitchen table, Sam and Adele Golden would look out over the picturesque countryside and dream of a community of artists living, working, and creating.
With the purchase of the Huth Farm in 2004, the Golden Family began the process of bringing into focus the dream of Sam and Adele. Located just several hundred yards down the road from Golden Artist Colors, the newly transformed Golden Foundation Residency Barn is home to the Golden Foundation.
The Golden Foundation Residency Barn’s lower level features three residency apartments with individual bedrooms and bathrooms, a modern, fully appointed communal kitchen, an inviting shared dining room, and a comfortable shared living room.
Offices and a gallery space occupy a portion of the second floor, while a 2,400 sq. ft. open-plan painting studio occupies the rest. The studio is divisible into smaller spaces, depending on the needs of the artists. The third floor consists of a smaller loft studio, approximately 900 sq. ft., and another open floor plan studio, approximately 1,200 sq. ft. A catwalk bridge spans the third floor materials area. (Because of shared open studio space, solvent use will be limited)
The Sam and Adele Golden Foundation Residency resides on 140 acres of fields and woods in the town of Columbus, New York. Columbus is a small rural farming community about a four hour drive from New York City. The residency property has a beautiful brook running through it, along with miles of groomed walking paths.
