Chateau Orquevaux "New Works 2017" Artist in Residence
Deadline: December 15
Orquevaux, Champagne-Ardenne, France
Chateau Orquevaux offers a respite from "real" world energy. This magnificent estate in the French countryside of Champagne-Ardenne offers artists a place with limited distraction and an abundance of natural inspiration. The idea for an artist residency was conceived by the owners in an effort to share this exceptional environment with other artists. The residencies are self-motivated and self-catering so that artists can fully immerse themselves in the environment and the french country life style. There will be no more than eight or nine artists in residence at a time. Artists are provided private rooms with a shared bath. Linens and towels are provided as well as housekeeping. The Chateau will be lightly provisioned with snacks and water. Upon arival a champagne reception will offer an introduction to other artists in residence and an orientation of The Chateau, Parc and Studio spaces. Transportation will be available for visits to the market and other area attractions. There will be some planned visits to regional areas but participation is optional.
