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.

Through abstract geometric paintings, Philadelphia artist Melinda Steffy translates music into color patterns, exploring ideas of translation, information and data, and how music weaves throughout human experience. Melinda Steffy’s RUINATION DAY series (acrylic on wood panel) deconstructs folk and blues songs that reference the date April 14, which is when Lincoln was shot, the Titanic hit the iceberg, and the Black Sunday dust storm devastated the Midwest. Melinda Steffy’s BACH PROJECT series (watercolor on paper) converts classical music by J.S. Bach and Bela Bartok into grids and pie charts. Rather than hear one note after the other through time, the paintings show all of the notes and rhythms simultaneously on one visual plane.
