These 18 artists will live and work in a completely renovated chicken barn for 4 weeks and have access to an unlimited supply of acrylics, oils, watercolors and custom materials. Additionally, there is an educational component to the program including topics such as frugal use of water in the studio, varnishing, best practices in studio waste management and packing and shipping ones artwork.

We are celebrating another amazing year with no residency fees to the artists! This has been possible due to the friends and supporters of the Foundation. THANK YOU!
