Residencies are offered to artists who work in one of the following media: ceramics, new media, photography, furniture design, woodworking, painting, drawing, printmaking, and sculpture. There are no specific educational qualifications for entry into the Artists-in-Residence program. Awards will be made to those who, in the exclusive opinion of the jury, have submitted the best work by the application deadline.

The residency is offered during two terms each year (approximate dates):

  • Fall Term: October – December 2016 (ten weeks)

While in residence, artists will be encouraged to pursue their own work amidst a group of artistic peers. The residency is designed to allow artists to take risks and pursue new projects and ideas. Artists-in-Residence are encouraged to pursue a multidisciplinary approach toward their work while at the Ranch. Resident artists will be provided housing, studio space, meals and certain other benefits and will be required to submit a residency fee of $1,500.

Four of the 28 residencies are fully funded fellowships awarded by the jury panel.
