Roswell Artist-in-Residence Program

Roswell Artist-in-Residence Program

This Deadline Expired: Monday, March 15, 2021

Well known by visual artists as the “Gift of Time”, the Roswell Artist-in-Residence Program was established in 1967 to provide gifted studio based visual artists with the unique opportunity to concentrate on their work in a supportive, collegial environment for a whole year. This “gift of time” allows artists to work without distraction in an effort to break new ground and focus on individual goals.

The Roswell Artist-in-Residence Program’s interest is in strengthening the vitality of the visual art in New Mexico and has been a catalyst in broadening community understanding of contemporary art for over fifty years.

For over fifty years the Roswell Artist-in-Residence Program has provided talented artists working in any medium a full year to focus on their creative endeavors. Start dates of the six annual residencies are staggered throughout the year. The residency provides each artist with a comfortable 3 bedroom house with an attached 600 square ft studio with utilities paid. A stipend of $1100 per month is offered along with $100 for a spouse/partner and each child living at the resident. We are currently able to give an extra $100 per child ($200 total per child) thanks to a matching grant from the Sustainable Arts Foundation.  

Very few demands are made upon the artist in residence but The Roswell Museum of Art generally extends an offer to residents to exhibit and lecture during their year. Spouses and partners who travel with the artist are offered a studio and use of the facilities on a first-come, first-serve basis.
