Visits to area cultural centers, galleries, and performance venues as well as short trips to regional arts facilities can open up a range of networking possibilities. AIR Studio Paducah features a storefront gallery/multi-purpose space that can be used for exhibitions or presentations during the residency.
About AIR Studio Paducah
AIR Studio Paducah is in its 14th year as an artist residency program. It is situated in the heart of the LowerTown Arts District, Paducah, Kentucky. Since 2004, creatives have passed through the AIR doors to make the most of the space and a stretch of undistracted time as envisioned by founder Alonzo Davis, himself an artist.
Drawn to Paducah by the Artist Relocation Program, Davis initially considered LowerTown as the location for a personal studio/retreat. Inspired by working retreat experiences in California, Costa Rica, Connecticut, Wyoming, Colorado, and Virginia, Davis decided to establish an artist residency program. Not only would visiting artists benefit, but also their interaction with a changing influx of creatives from outside could lend an additional dynamic to the evolving LowerTown community. An active residency program would heighten the arts district’s visibility.
For most of its existence, AIR residents have been visual and fiber artists, a few photographers, and a scattering of creatives in other disciplines. The application process has since expanded and opened up to writers, architects, composers and improvisational choreographers. Geographically, AIR residents hail from all over the U.S. east, west, north, south and Canada.
“The perks of a residency at AIR Studio include time to focus on getting work done and the chance to work in the close-knit atmosphere of the community, which is generally supportive of artists… the studio space is a large open space which accommodates work in a variety of disciplines.”

The Skopelos Foundation for the Arts (SkopArt) located on the Greek Island of Skopelos is offering artist residencies for 2019. Greek Island Residency studios are equipped for painters, printmakers, ceramicists, digital photographers, and videographers. Residencies are from two to four weeks from April-October. Perched high above the Aegean Sea, find a welcome respite from the hurly-burly world. Feel freedom to work in one of the best equipped studios in Europe. Experience the food, history, landscape, music, and the welcoming people of the island.
A Greek Island Residency has much to offer all ages and needs. A younger artist may need to boost their resume. Another may be working on a deadline for a project and require the time to work alone and concentrate on their project. Others may need time away from their culture and environment to find a different form of inspiration. Some bring friends or families so they may spend their free time in other pursuits. Others enjoy the exchanges that occur with artists working in the studio in different mediums or sometimes the same medium.
The journey to the island on the hydrofoil or ferry presents all residents with a 2-1/2 hour experience that is relaxing to the spirit and visually exciting as one leaves the shore and first arrives at the Port of Skiathos. It then continues for another hour to the Port of Skopelos. The quaint villages with red tile and slate roofs dot the mountains. The lush pine forests of Skopelos are in view. The coves and beaches tucked away from full view stir the imagination and call for exploration. The Skopelos staff will greet residents at the port and make sure their needs are provided as they make their way the short distance to their lodgings and the studio. The staff at Skopelos wishes the residents to find freedom to explore, experiment, and expand their artistic expressions.
Greek Island Residency Artist Benefits
A workshop is offered in painting, drawing, printmaking, and book arts on July 8-20, 2019. It is designed for all levels. The workshop begins in the historic Plaka district in Athens then continues to Skopelos Island. The instructors, Beth Curren, Carolee Jakes, and Cindy Tidler, are accomplished artists from the Washington, DC area. They have been resident artists at The Skopelos Foundation in past years. Their expertise in travel to Greece will assure participants a great creative experience.
About The Skopelos Foundation for the Arts
SkopArt’s location on a Greek Island midway between Athens and Thessaloniki in the Aegean Sea is called the green island because of the lush pine forests that meet the sea and natural springs that they say come from Mount Olympus. In spring, the pastures are awash with a varied palette of wildflowers. Goats and sheep graze on the mountains. Valleys are dotted with grapes and olive trees. Winter can be harsh with fierce winds. Some years, snow is heavy and welcome rains that replenish the water supply.
People have inhabited the island from around 2800-2000 B.C. On the area of Sendouka are found what look to be chiselled graves from what is said to be neolithic times but this is argued. Myths flourish from those times and continue today with all sorts of ways to do things especially to keep the evil eye away. Through the ages pirates, Romans, and Venetians often plundered the island until Turkish rule, though there was never a Turkish settlement on the island. Roman and Venetian ruins can still be found. In the 1960s, the state supported the development of the neighboring island of Skiathos, but it was left alone. In the 1980s, the town came under an order of preservation which has kept the village unchanged and is of extraordinary beauty.
