The Post seeks artists who want to produce, explore, test new concepts and expand the current debates and ideas in today’s art and culture. Time spent in residence allows artists to revitalize their ideas, develop their work, meet peers and explore new options.
The Residency Program focuses on emerging and early career artists and accepts applicants who offer quality in their art and encourages diversity of style, medium (2-D, 3-D, 4-D), and concept. Click here to learn more.
The Woodside Church and chapel are National Historic register buildings. They were commissioned by industrialist and inventor Henry Burden who paid for them with the wealth he had accumulated, in part, by producing almost a million horseshoes a week during the Civil War. The Church was designed by Henry Dudley, a prominent English church architect, and played a significant role in the life of the nineteenth century mill workers. It was, for many, their only social outlet, and formed the center of the neighborhood’s community. It has recorded the births, deaths, marriages, trials and triumphs of Victorian era life. The building has a remarkable pedigree that has garnered it a place of importance in the Gothic Revival movement in American church architecture. Click here to learn more.
