Fort Union National Monument Artist in Residence

Fort Union National Monument Artist in Residence

This Deadline Expired: Wednesday, October 7, 2020

The National Parks Arts Foundation is inviting applications for its Fort Union National Monument Artist in Residence Program.

The program, located at Fort Union National Monument, in Mora County near Watrous, New Mexico, was the hub of commerce, national defense, and migration at the final stretch of the Santa Fe Trail. The richly evocative traces of a post-Civil War era adobe fort, it became a National Monument in 1954 under the Eisenhower administration. The location is close to historic Las Vegas, New Mexico, the Great Plains, local sights like Wagon Mound and Montezuma Castle, and is only an hour and half away from Santa Fe, the art capital of the Southwest.

The program will offer one Artist in Residence term, October 4 through 28, 2021, and one veterans residence term, April 5 through April 29, 2021. Artists working in media/genre may apply for one of the 2021 residencies at the monument, which offers a venue for a workshop or public lecture about the artwork or process (if the artist is interested in public interaction or performance), as well as an opportunity to donate artwork, through NPAF, that may be included in a national collection or exhibits. Though there is no stipend, no fee to apply. (Note: there is no Wi-Fi at the location.)

Constance Culpepper is a contemporary artist located in Philadelphia, PA (USA). Her large, vibrantly colored oil paintings primarily depict domestic scenes, including interiors, still life, the female figure, and chairs. The paintings are representational, yet deconstructed, and full of pattern. With her paper collages, Culpepper is more abstract, yet the themes of domesticity can still be found.

My art spans many disciplines and areas. Being a self taught, learning and experimenting has become an ingrained part of my practice and as such there is a diverse range of subject matter and on some occasions style.  Majority of my works are oil paintings, created in series, in a representational style,. Some of note are “Buddhas on Handmade Paper”, “Bicycles in Snow” “#Savetheelephants”. The common thread in my diverse art is the feeling of serenity and tranquility, with the ultimate objective in every painting to capture the harmonious existence of different elements in nature, that evidences life is strong, calm and beautiful.
