About BAC Residencies
BAC resident artists work together in spaces designed to accommodate their artistic form.
The artist living spaces are inviting and comfortable with expansive views of our scenic property. Residents have full access to our facilities and 25 acre grounds offering a fruit orchard and meditation trail. At the heart of the campus is our commercial kitchen and dining area where artists in residence and visitors of BAC’s can gather for daily meals. These gatherings encourage the exchange of ideas and the development of collaborative relationships within the community. BAC encourages artists to engage in studio visits, group commentary, and presentations of works-in-progress. This allows the artists to gain familiarity with each other’s’ work and establish a vigorous, engaging dialogue that supports collaboration and connection.
BAC resident artists will participate in events that are open to the public.
This will include the opportunity for the public to witness the innovative and diverse examples of the artist’s work in progress. Informal studio visits, lectures given about their work and career and hold exhibits at the end of the residency.
Feature Artists Showcase
The Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Company is embarking on a new partnership with Bethany Arts Community in Ossining, NY and will be in residence at BAC May 7-June 1, 2018. During this four-week residency, the company will be creating a new work and expanding existing work. They will use the facilities at BAC to immerse themselves in the creative process, spending valuable time together and with the BAC community through open rehearsals, community dialogues and public events. The nature of a residency outside of the city, even if just a few short train stops away, allows the artists to truly leave mundane activities that can sometimes get in the way of process and focus on engaging on the art form and their colleagues.
