Lyons Wier Shashoua Artist in Residency Program

The Lyons Wier Shashoua Artist in Residence Award offers a three-month residency program to young artists whose artwork supports the gallery's mission to discover and champion the next generation of representational artists whose work within our vision of "Conceptual Realism."

The Lyons Wier Shashoua Artist in Residence Award is a multifaceted program offering a select artist an exclusive three-month studio space (non-living) located in the heart of Chelsea. The residency is open to artists currently enrolled or recently graduated from an accredited MFA program.
