In News

We’re thrilled to announce our incoming lineup of artists who will be participating in ECA’s studio residency program, Art Workspace Easthampton (AWE)! It was an exceptionally competitive process, as we received more applications than ever before, and it inspired us to add an additional session at ECA Gallery, in addition to the five upcoming residencies at MAP Space in Eastworks. We look forward to working with these incredible individuals and encourage you all to become familiar with their work.

We extend our thanks and acknowledgements to each and every artist who applied–and we also offer our thanks and appreciation to both CitySpace and Eastworks for their ongoing support of this program. Many thanks as well to the members of the AWE selection panel, who worked closely together to see a thoughtful and thorough process through. Members of the selection panel are listed below.
