Listhus announces a call for artists for the Skammdegi Residency And Festival. Take the challenge of living with and respond to the dark, cold winter in north Iceland through any art form. Selected artists will have the opportunity to be secluded. Surrounded by mountains and snow, work in a quiet, creative space for ten weeks. This residency provides an excellent collaborative environment that encourages community engagement. The Skammdegi Festival will be held from 15-18 February 2019 for the final presentation of the challenge.
Deadline: 15 Jun 2018
Skammdegi, in Icelandic, means the Dark Winter, a condition that is a yearly right of passage in this part of the world. At its darkest on December 21, the mysterious local daylight is present for less than four hours. The rest is night. Surrounded by mountains on three sides and looking directly at the Northern Atlantic on the other, Olafsfjordur, in North Iceland, is the uniquely beautiful location of Listhús.
During the months of December and January, the sun never rises higher than the surrounding mountains. The land is covered by a mysterious light reflected from the snow-covered mountains. The atmosphere creates a special environmental and emotional challenge. Local people eager to raise their spirits in the long night light up their houses with colorful lights and celebrate the distinctive Icelandic Christmas traditions till January 6th. As the winter progresses, the sun gradually climbs the mountains until the first ray of sunshine glows on the highest local peak on January 21. By the end of the month, the sunshine will once again reach the town itself.
Having recently completed its forth running, the Skammdegi Residency And Festival has formed a distinct character. It provides a hospitable environment and rare atmosphere for artists doing experiments that they cannot implement elsewhere. While the location is remote and doesn’t have the resources present in a larger city, artists feel the freedom of creation. The residency duration is long enough for artists to explore a new place, establish a new idea, and achieve its implementation.
Skammdegi Residency And Festival Fee For Ten Weeks
- 900 euro: a single bedroom without extra studio, desk in the bedroom
- 1,100 euro: a single bedroom with working studio 5-7 sqm. shared or private

Dacia’s Artist Residency provides an academic program to inspire, refine and redefine the creative direction of artists in a painting intensive two-week program. The application is open to visual artists worldwide, including all mediums and styles of artwork. We are accepting artists that want to dedicate their time to painting, learning the ins and outs of the New York art world and exploring all the wonderful opportunities that the city has to offer artists. Art classes will alternate between figurative painting and drawing, the business of art, guest speakers and lecturers. We will explore the contemporary art galleries of Chelsea and the Lower East Side and visit the great museums of New York. Additionally, an exhibition and opening reception will be held for the participating resident artists at Dacia Gallery.
Dacia Gallery is a contemporary art gallery presenting museum quality solo and group exhibitions of established and emerging artists in the Lower East Side of Manhattan. Since 2010, Dacia has gained extensive attention amongst collectors and art connoisseurs by mounting increasingly ambitious representational, landscape and abstract exhibitions, which have included notable artists: Janet A. Cook, Stephen Early, Max Ginsburg, Kristy Gordon, Maria Kreyn, Travis Little, Daniel Maidman, Christopher Pugliese, Nelson Shanks and Patricia Watwood. Dacia’s success is a result of a fresh and unconventional apparoach as to what a gallery should encompass, and by partnering with artists to build a strong community of like-minded individuals willing to support and promote each other’s achievements. In addition, exhibiting artists are always present at our opening receptions where we invite them to give an artist talk and to meet and greet the admiring public.
