The 6-Month Artist Retreat at the Historic Studios is designed for working professional artists and curators. We especially encourage tenured art faculty on sabbatical to apply as they are unable to partake in our one-year artist-in-residence grant. This opportunity gives professional artists a chance to live in the southwest, work in an artists community, and explore New Mexico. We require a statement describing how this opportunity will benefit your work, 3 references and a link to your portfolio.
The Historic Studios is a small community of working artists who live and work in close proximity to one another. It is imperative that all residents are professional artists who are mature, kind and respectful of others and their live/work spaces. Criteria is based on references, portfolio and dedication to studio practice.
The fees to attend are $1,500 per month, which includes a furnished two bedroom house with an office (which includes utilities, wifi, dishes, linens and a shared laundry facility), a private 600 sq. foot studio with North light and access to Roswell’s vibrant art community with openings, art talks and local community events. Artists are invited to have an open studio and give an art talk, if they wish.
