Artist Residency (old page)


Spruceton Inn artist residency

The short version: A handful of artists. One week each. Free stay. No strings attached. 

The little bit longer version: Every September we accept applications online from writers and 2D artists, about seven of whom will be awarded a no-cost, week-long, solo Artist Residency here at the Inn between January and March. We don't require that you produce anything, show us anything. If part of your process is simply walking in the woods and never putting pen to paper then that's A ok with us! That said, one of favorite parts of this Residency is spending time with the Artists at the Bar and learning about what they're up to. 

Want to apply? Check back in right here next September. Or join our mailing list so you'll be one of the first to know when we open applications!
