About Residency 108

Residency 108 is a rural residency program with a focus on landscape and ecology. They program is unique in that it invites artists to engage with a specific site, 108 acres of pastoral land which was used as a horse farm in the last century. The property features rolling hills, mowed paths, meadows, densely wooded forests, wetlands with a few ponds of varying size, and a seasonal stream. In addition to these ecosystems, a variety of native plant species host habitats for birds, reptiles, and amphibians. The program is ideal for artists who wish to engage with the landscape and prefer isolation to interaction. If you require constant contact with civilization this may not be the program for you.

About the International Centre for Sculpture

Since the dawn of human history, men and women have shaped everyday objects into special forms. In so doing, they have left behind traces of their own lives and the world of their imagination. All cultures known to us, on any of our continents, have thus created sculptures in which past, present, and future are intertwined in forms of everlasting beauty. They will continue to generate significant expressions of mankind’s own perceptions in the future.

As part of our wholehearted commitment to this tradition, CIS strongly believes in the potential for development that is offered by three-dimensional art. With the aim of promoting the artists working in the field, CIS is committed to the creation of the Centre as a place where this tradition is developed and will be celebrated further in the years to come.

Chaco Culture AiR: October 2020 – Call For Artists

The National Parks Arts Foundation announces a call for artists for the Chaco Culture AiR: October 2020, an all media artist residency at Chaco Culture National Historical Park. Call open to any level artist working in any medium including writers, poets, filmmakers, video artists, new media, screenwriters, sculpture and 3D artists, and visual artists. Outdoor site specific installations are generally not accepted due to the delicate setting and may require special permissions and permitting for the National Park Service.

Deadline: 29 Nov 2019

The Chaco Culture National Historic Park  October residency is one of two residencies offered to artists at the park in 2020. The residency is inside the park, in National Park Service housing, and there is no studio. Artists will work plein air or in their lodging. This is a very isolated location.

Located in the four corners area of New Mexico and founded as an Antiquities Monument in 1907, Chaco Culture National Historical Park was operated for most of the 20th century as an anthropological storehouse of knowledge and evidence of the Chacoan Culture. This beautiful and isolated complex preserves the historical traces of the sacred ancestral culture to many of the existing pueblos of the Southwest. The park is a Dark Skies certified location, an ideal place for astronomy and astrophotography. The Monument expanded to its present boundaries and park designation in 1980.

The park is located in the open plains of Northwestern New Mexico, sharing borders with the Navajo Nation and BLM land.  It is approximately one and a half hours from the closest city, Farmington, and two hours and forty minutes from Albuquerque. A vehicle is definitely required for this residency. (Lyft or Uber are never practical workarounds in the beautiful, isolated open spaces of this corner of New Mexico.)

Chaco Culture AiR: October 2020 Artist Benefits

Selected artists will receive a $1000 stipend and one month housing at NPS Housing in the National Park. This is a rare privilege usually available only to occasional visitors and anthropologists. The residency includes at least one public event at the park which allows the artists to engage with park visitors and discuss their work. Selected artists are eligible to donate a single artwork through NPAF that will (by mutual agreement) be a part of the NPS’s historic art collection. The National Parks Arts Foundation’s residencies were recently named one of 7 Artist Residency Programs ‘with career launching power.’ NPAF and this park were recently the subject of a Hyperallergic Feature about the usefulness of art in the National Parks as a way to counter rampant oil and gas development strategies.

Pond Farm Artist in Residence Program (Guerneville, CA) – Call For Artists

Pond Farm Artist in Residence Program (Guerneville, CA) – Call For Artists

Stewards of the Coast and Redwoods announces a call for artists for the Pond Farm Artist in Residence Program. This is a unique opportunity for artists to be immersed in nature; inspired by the spirit of past Pond Farmers, as Marguerite’s students are known; and have space and time to create. 1-3 month residencies begin in March 2020.

Click here for the application / registration

Deadline: 1 Dec 2019

Pond Farm is a rustic oasis nestled in the middle of Austin Creek State Recreation Area in Sonoma County, CA, which is contiguous to the majestic old growth forest of Armstrong Redwoods State Natural Reserve. In addition to access to the 5,000 acres of inspirational space, residents experience the grandeur of Austin Creek, a dramatic natural setting near the Pacific coast.

Pond Farm Artist in Residence Program Artist Benefits

Pond Farm is a special place, originally started as an artists’ colony in the late 1940s, then transitioned to Pond Farm Pottery, where studio pottery artist Marguerite Wildenhain lived, worked, and taught annual summer workshops. Her work and her teachings had a significant impact on the Studio Pottery movement in California.

“If you have the will to learn, and the eyes to see, and the mind to search, someday too, all the facts you have discovered through nature will be visible in your work, whether you know it or not.”
Marguerite Wildenhain, The Invisible Core

Marguerite Wildenhain dedicated her life to her craft. After finishing her studies at the Bauhaus she became the first female master potter in Germany. She was a remarkable woman who touched many lives through her work and her teachings. Marguerite strongly believed that the journey to become a true artist was not about learning a technique, but much more about the development of the whole person, an “opening of the soul.” She taught her students for over 30 years at Pond Farm Pottery — to look and see into nature, sketch, discuss philosophy, and, of course, be truly dedicated to the rigor of the craft – really to teach a way of life.

Much effort has gone into preserving Pond Farm and its legacy. The Stewards of the Coast and Redwoods are excited to announce that they will begin accepting applications for its Artist in Residence program in the Fall of 2018. Bringing artists to live and work at the site again will ensure that the vision of Pond Farm is not lost. It will provide an opportunity to encourage a dynamic engagement with park visitors and the broader community.

About Stewards of the Coast and Redwoods

Stewards of the Coast and Redwoods (Stewards) is a non-profit organization that partners with the Russian River Sector of California State Parks to promote, restore, and protect the natural and cultural resources in our parks. The sector includes Armstrong Redwoods State Natural Reserve (outside Guerneville), Austin Creek State Recreation Area (a park Stewards is now operating), Sonoma Coast State Park (from Bodega Bay to Jenner). State Parks depends on Stewards to provide funding for the Volunteers in Parks program, educational and interpretive activities, for resource management and stewardship projects, and to assist in the development of interpretive facilities and displays.

The State Parks of Sonoma County’s coast and Russian River valley are rich in natural and cultural history, biological diversity, and distinctive geology. The Stewards’ mission is to promote, restore and protect the natural and cultural resources of Russian River area State Parks through interpretation and public stewardship. They do this (with the help of 300 volunteers) by providing park visitors of all ages with a variety of programs and opportunities to experience and explore these exceptional parks.

Klots International Program For Artists 2020 (Lehon, France) – Call For Artists

The Alfred and Trafford Klots International Program for Artists 2020 provides time for uninterrupted work in an inspiring and historic setting made unique by Brittany’s extraordinary light, distinctive landscape, and rich cultural traditions. The program awards successful applicants with free housing and studio space in the village of Léhon, France. Residents are responsible for most meals and incidental expenses. MICA charges no fees for application to or participation in the Alfred and Trafford Klots International Program for Artists.

Click here for the application / registration

Deadline: 1 Feb 2020

The selection committee and program directors seek four to eight practicing American visual artists, regardless of affiliation. Applicants must not be students at the time of their application. They are looking for artists who can use the specific character of the residency experience productively and whose mix of media, approaches, styles, and focus will create a dynamic and collegial community. The residency is best suited for artists working in the traditional two-dimensional disciplines of painting and drawing.

The natural landscape of Brittany and its historic (and prehistoric) built environment, to say nothing of the magical light in the west of France, are ideal for those artists working on site, en plein aire. Photographers using digital media will find the residency’s setting inspiring. Artists working three dimensionally might find the residency useful if their residency work takes the form of two-dimensional paintings or drawings produced as research or complements to later three-dimensional work accomplished in their home setting.

The committee does not accept applications from artists proposing film, video, or other time arts projects. They offer large shared studio space that opens into the expansive Abbey gardens; however, the residency has no kilns, darkrooms, tools, or technical spaces necessary for complex or large-scale fabrication.

Klots International Program For Artists 2020 Artist Benefits

This residency supplies a rare opportunity for talented artists to deepen their practice for a period of eight uninterrupted weeks in an inspiring setting in the west of France. The residents participate in an important closing exhibition sponsored by the commune of Léhon.

Residents have an opportunity to interact with townspeople and important officials as well as local artists. They can explore intriguing megalithic monuments and Roman ruins that dot the landscape. Artists experience aspects of French village life, including amenities available in Dinan, such as a local outdoor market. The residency is close to historic sites, such as Saint- Malo, Mont-Saint. Michel, and the spectacular Brittany coastline.

About The Maryland Institute College of Art

The Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA) was established in 1826 in Baltimore, Maryland. It is the oldest continuously degree-granting college of art in the nation. MICA has become the leader in the education of artists and designers by fostering a community of talented, creative individuals committed to redefining the boundaries of art and design and to expanding their own vision and perspective through rigorous study.
