About AIR Studio Paducah

AIR Studio Paducah, now in its 16th year as an artist residency program, is situated in the heart of the LowerTown Arts District, Paducah, Kentucky. Since 2004, creatives from around the country and abroad have passed through the 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 however by working retreat experiences in California, Costa Rica, Connecticut, Wyoming, Colorado and Virginia, Davis decided instead to establish an artist residency program. Not only would visiting artists benefit, but also interaction with a changing influx of creatives from outside could lend an additional dynamic to the evolving LowerTown community. An active residency program would also heighten arts district visibility in the world of artist’s communities nationally and internationally.

About AIR Studio Prior Residents

In 2004 and as soon as renovations at 621 Madison Street were complete, AIR Studio Paducah welcomed its first resident—painter, Pinkney Herbert of Memphis. Soon to follow was printmaker, Maritza Davila, also of Memphis and on her heels, Adriene Cruz, a fiber artist from Portland, Oregon arrived. Other early residents included Benjamin Kelley, sculptor, Dave Malone, poet, the art quilter, Anita Knox, and digital artist, Monica Smith. Paducah area artists and writers also utilized the space from time to time.

For most of its existence, A.I.R. 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, residents hail from all over the U.S. east, west, north, south, and Canada.

Click here for the application / registration

Deadline: 29 Feb 2020

In addition to accepting applications from established artists, the Pine Needles Residency includes an emerging artist category to encourage and support upcoming artists with this same calling. Emerging artists show some evidence of achievement. To date, they do not have a substantial record of accomplishment and are not yet recognized as established artists by other artists, curators, critics, and arts administrators. Emerging artists will be considered in a separate pool and must be 21 years of age or older.

About St. Croix Watershed Research Station

The St. Croix Watershed Research Station is the environmental research station of the Science Museum of Minnesota. It is a private, non-profit laboratory dedicated to better understanding humanity’s relationship with our most precious resource by studying how land use, climate change, atmospheric deposition, and other factors affect aquatic systems.

The setting for the Artist at Pine Needles Residency is the James Taylor Dunn Pine Needles Cabin, located just north of the village of Marine on St. Croix, Minnesota, on the bluffs of the St. Croix River. In 2019, the artists selected were: large-scale, 2D and 3D visual artist Katherine Steichen Rosing of Madison, WI; botanical printmaker Linda Snouffer of St. Paul, MN; installation artist and sculptor Peter Krsko of Wonewoc, WI; and emerging artist, lyrical essayist and poet Kate Lucas of Minneapolis, MN.

Applications for 2020 will be accepted from writers and artists who focus on environmental or natural history topics and strive to connect the complex world between art, nature, and the sciences. As part of the program, artists will be encouraged to design an outreach project to share their work with the local community.

Artist at Pine Needles Residency Artist Benefits

The 2020 Artist at Pine Needles Residency offers artists the unique opportunity to interact and learn from freshwater paleolimnological scientists who study how lakes and rivers are changing over time and what can be done to mitigate those changes brought on by land use practices and climate change. This interaction between artists and scientists fosters a deeper understanding of the connections between their artwork, the science currently being done to protect lakes and rivers, and how they interpret that art/science interplay to the public.

Pine Needles Artists get the sole use of a historic, 3-room cabin built before World War I. This rustic, comfortable cabin includes a full bath, bed/sitting room, and kitchen. A generous enclosed porch, overlooking the river, is suitable for writing, sketching, and reflection. It is located on a 20-acre site on the bluffs of the St. Croix River, a nationally designated Wild and Scenic River. The secluded site is heavily wooded, with spring-fed streams, native wildflowers, and local wildlife.

A short walk, bike ride, or drive will bring artists to the quaint village of Marine on St. Croix, Minnesota. A coffee shop, community-run library, family-owned restaurant, art gallery, gift shop, and seasonal ice cream shop provides entertainment and home-town feel to visiting artists.

Click Here For The Application / Registration

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.

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.

Deadline: 15 Nov 2019

The Hawai’i Volcanoes National Park (HAVO) summer residency is one of three residencies offered to artists at the park in the summer of 2020. The residency is just outside the park. It is very close to the Kahuku Unit of HAVO and about 45 minutes by car to the park headquarters and / or the summit of the volcanoes. The house is large, near the famous beaches of green sand, and can accommodate a family, art collective, or musicians group. There is a studio and a demo booth (for musicians and podcasters) at the house.

Located on the Big Island, Hawai’i, USA, HAVO is one of the jewels of the U.S. Park System. It is home to Mauna Kea and Kīlauea Volcanoes, some of the most sacred places in the Hawaiian Islands, and many unique and precious flora and fauna. A vehicle is required for this residency. (Lyft or Uber are not practical workarounds on the Island.)

Hawai’i Volcanoes National Park AiR: July 2020 Artist Benefits

Selected artists will receive a $2000 stipend and one month housing at a multi-bedroom house which includes an artist studio and a demo booth for musicians / sound artists / podcasters. 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 was 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.
