Selected Artists-in-Residence | March 7 – 20

Artists are invited to submit an application for one of two selected artists-in-residence.

Artists will be provided with lodging, workspace, and a weekly stipend to work in either the multi-use Founders Hall Studio or in the Eco-friendly Printmaking Studio. Two artists may also apply to work in a collaborative residency. See attached application and instructions.

Mentor Residency Workshops

The Art Colony will host five mentoring artists in 2016. Each artist offers a unique personal and philosophical approach and teaching style. While students will bring independent projects to work on, workshops are cooperative in nature, characterized by critical group dialogue, focused time to work, and mentored guidance.

Contact the Art Colony for details or to register.
