Location / Setting
Lacasapark Art Residency and Guest House is located in Gardiner, New York in the wild Hudson Valley countryside. Adjacent to the 23,000-acre Minnewaska State Park, but only an hour and a half away from New York City, the property is nestled in the Shawangunk Mountains, surrounded by forests with abundant wildlife, streams and ponds.
LaCasaPark Art Residency sits in the heart of the rich and vibrant Hudson Valley arts scene, close to institutions such as Dia:Beacon, Storm King Art Center, Magazzino, Dorsky Museum, Art Omi, and more.
LaCasaPark offers artists one to three month residencies with onsite accommodation and studios. Originally built in the 1960s as a printing press workshop, the residency is housed in a 4,000 square foot barn that now serves as a multifunctional work space, gallery, and loft. Big garage doors and windows infuse the rooms with natural light. The space opens to a covered outdoor area intended for work or relaxation, providing a fluid transition between interior and exterior. Studios range in size depending on the residences needs. LaCasaPark hosts up to four artists at a time, fostering an atmosphere of creative interaction.

Application and Selection
The program operates from April 1st to November 1st
Applications are open for submission all year around.
LaCasaPark Advisory Board collaborates with institutions and foundations to invite artists who produce work of exceptional quality and are expanding the vocabulary of their art. We regularly conduct studio visits, and invite emerging and established artists whose work we encounter at museums, galleries, and fairs around the world. Invited artists submit materials for review; final candidates will then meet the Advisory Board to coordinate all aspects of the residency.
Artists who are interested in LaCasaPark Residency must complete the application form on our website. Applications will become available on our website in Spring 2019.
