this is an semi-informal artist residency located in my living space- wherever that may be.

currently its in Arroyo Seco, NM in a 100+ year old adobe cabin nestled beneath El Salto mountain 7,000 above sea level. 10 miles from Taos.

length of stay can vary greatly, but expectations of contributions by the artist will change accordingly to the amount of time. 1 month maximum.

 

a more detailed list of guidelines will be sent if accepted.

 

expectations will vary based on multiple factors such as what type of ‘art’ you will be focusing on, and length of stay. these will be discussed upon the acceptance of your application. however, there are a few universal expectations:

respect for the space and those around you.
this means not being obnoxious or rude, and cleaning up after yourself.

contribute to the living space.
an arrangement will be worked out based on length of stay for what you can do around the house to karmically ‘pay’ for use of the space. this can be something as simple as going on a recycling run once a week, a couple hours of yard work, or any other kind of chore around the house.

something left behind
once again, based on the length of stay and the kind of artwork you are perusing, at the end of the residency you must leave something behind. this can be a piece of artwork, or perhaps a skill. regardless this will be discussed on a person to person basis.

 

 

open but not limited to :

painting, drawing, photography, collage, mixed media, sculpture, fibers, wood, video, performance, music, sound, writers, poets, thinkers, explorers, herbalists, gardeners, or anybody who could use a break from reality.
