Roswell Artist-in-Residence Program 2022

Roswell Artist-in-Residence Program 2022

This Deadline Expired: Tuesday, March 15, 2022

The Roswell Artist-in-Residence Foundation is inviting applications for the Roswell Artist-in-Residence Program (RAiR). Conceived by businessman and artist Donald B. Anderson in 1967, the RAiR program aims to enhance the cultural environment of Roswell and southeastern New Mexico.

The residency will provide each artist with a three-bedroom house with an attached 600-square-foot-studio and utilities paid, plus $1100 a month for residents and a new $250 materials stipend for all residents each month, provided by the Hammersley Foundation. Additional awards include $100 for spouses and $200 for artists with partners and families for each child living on the compound. Spouses and partners who travel with the artist are offered a studio and use of the facilities on a first-come, first-served basis.

The studio compound has a woodshop, ceramics studio, litho and etching facilities, and a digital print room. Artists are generally offered opportunities to exhibit and lecture during their stay at the Roswell Museum but are not obliged to accept. There are some opportunities to collaborate, teach, and work in the Roswell community with a casual social schedule, but these are optional, leaving artists free to structure their time. Artists are expected to be in residence during their year.

For complete program guidelines and application instructions, see the Roswell Artist-in-Residence Foundation website.

I attribute the source of my artistic inspiration to my love, fear, and awe of nature as it both represents and defines the tension and optimism of life. My “Take Any Road Series” encourages the viewer to have the confidence to experience life no matter how difficult or confusing, beautiful, or powerful. All of this exists with an underlying structure of assumptions.
I think we all see the world a little differently and feel our own experience uniquely.  I paint using what all of my senses have given to me as the experience.  When I paint the sky, I am feeling the wind, putting it to music in my head, remembering the smell of the chance of rain, tasting the air, seeing the clouds dance.
