Residency 108 Fall 2017 Session Artist Benefits

Residency 108 invites artists to immerse themselves in their creative practice. Those who work with nature, ecology, and the installation of temporary outdoor land-art works are welcome to apply. The residency is free apart from the cost of travel and material expenses which must be assumed by the individual.

Two four week-long residencies are offered each year. One during the month of October and one in May. The program accommodates three artists at a time. Each resident is provided with a room, working facilities, and a weekly stipend for food. Participants are responsible for cooking their own meals. Each resident will be asked to present their work during the residency. Weekly critiques are held as a group and sometimes with a visiting critic.

About Residency 108

The program takes place on 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 residency is located in a remote area. It 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.
