SUMMER 2018 ARTIST IN RESIDENCE

Each artist has been accepted for a 5 night stay in a private room at our facility. Each artist has access to a two room artist studio, community kitchen, lounge and large garden. Artist will offer a work of art, lecture or workshop sharing the themes of their practice for the local community. No artist is expected to complete a project, but relax, create and repose for their short time here. Artists are in different stages of their career and we believe they will each lend to the theme of finding a foundation in this first year.
