There are presently no open calls for submissions.
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 three-bedroom house with an attached 600-square-foot studio with utilities paid. A stipend of $1100 per month is offered along with $100 per month for spouse/partner and each child living at the residency. A $250 monthly materials stipend is now generously underwritten by the Hammersley Foundation.
Very few demands are made upon the artist in residence but The Roswell Museum generally extends an offer to residents to exhibit and lecture during their year. Spouses and partners (who are artists themselves) traveling with the artist are offered a studio and use of the facilities on a first-come, first-served basis.
The 2022 call for applications opens on January 1st and closes on March 15 at 5 pm Mountain Time.
We will have the notifications of the selection process by mid-May, 2022.
Rough start dates for the 2022/23 residencies will be:
2 residencies beginning September 1, 2022
2 residencies beginning February 1, 2023
