Notification: December 7, 2018

Gregory Vita (1990-2017), was a dedicated, perseverant, and talented papermaker, paper marbler, bookmaker and printmaker. During his time with us, he wore many hats: a resident artist, a teacher, our resident skateboarder, and a friend you could run your wildest art ideas by. Due to the generosity of Greg’s family and friends, we are proud to offer a new artist residency opportunity in his honor.

Selected artist will receive:

  • A three month residency in Pyramid Atlantic’s paper studio
  • Key to studios and 24 hour access
  • Two papermaking workshops (from our summer workshop line-up)
  • Three (4 hour) lessons in other studios with Pyramid Atlantic’s artistic associates
  • Storage space and flat file for tools and materials
  • Use of standard shop supplies

Eligibility: Each applicants will be judged on the artistic merit of his/her work and interest and potential in paper arts. Artists who work includes papermaking, paper sculpture, paper marbling, book arts, printmaking (or combination thereof), are encouraged to apply.

Selection Process: A panel, including members of the Vita family, artists, and arts administrators will jury each round of applications.
