Open Call for Applications: Artist Residency at Marble House Project

Open Call for Applications: Artist Residency at Marble House Project

This Deadline Expired: Sunday, December 16, 2018

Marble House Project is currently accepting applications for its 2019 residency season. The multidisciplinary artist residency program fosters collaboration and the exchange of ideas, by providing an environment for artists across disciplines to live and work together. Marble House accepts approximately 56 residents each year and is open to artists living in the United States and abroad. Residencies run from April through October, scheduled into six three-week residencies and one two-week family-friendly residency for artists with children. Each session accommodates eight artists and is curated to bring together a diverse group of creative workers, to maximize potential for collaboration and dialogue while in residence and beyond.

All residents live together in the historic, eight-bedroom Manley-Lefevre house, a communal space organized around responsibilities-sharing systems which highlight sustainability and community. All residents will be paired and asked to cook for shared dinners three times over the course of their residency, Monday-Friday. A substantial amount of the food we provide comes from our organic garden, which also serves as a space for gathering and an educational tool. Each session culminates with ART SEED, our public open house weekend event. Artists are invited to share their work with our community through artist talks, readings, performances, and open studios.

Marble House Project provides private bedrooms, food, private studio space, and artist support. We are not able to cover costs related to travel or materials. There is no fee to attend the residency.

Applications are accepted in all creative fields including but not limited to writing, dance and choreography, performance, music composition and sound, film and video, visual arts, and culinary arts.

Deadline: December 16th, 2018 for residencies between April and October, 2019

I enjoy the manipulation of materials and how process itself contributes to the life and form of the image. Dramatic, gestural lines describe the play of light and wind across the water, while softer marks add life to the slow movement of rain laden clouds. Areas of sky, water, and land are knit together with brushstrokes to represent their seamless interaction under the common conditions of weather and time. In my acid etched tin pieces, areas of watery marks are left visible to suggest the underlying layers of the landscape. I  do not strive to recreate the particulars of  places that inspire me, but rather the timelessness of the elements of light, weather, and geometries that inform them. My work is not about how the landscape looks as much as about how the landscape makes me feel. I try to create an image that allows the viewer to engage with it in such a way as to invite similar introspection.
