Joseph A. Fiore Art Center Residency

Joseph A. Fiore Art Center
Deadline: March 1

Joseph A. Fiore Art Center
Jefferson, ME

The Visual Arts Residency is one month long, with 2 artists per month attending for July, August, and September. It includes a private room with shared bathroom in the renovated farmhouse at Rolling Acres Farm, shared kitchen and living space, and a very basic private studio space in the barn with a large art table and easel.

Aside from a fellow visual artist, resident artists can expect to share the house with a resident gardener and either a writer or performer/interdisciplinary artist/musician. All residents share the common thread of creating work that relates to the land or the environment in some meaningful way.

The residents will have three shared dinners a month which will be attended by the residency directors and one or more guests from the art/creative/farming community (two dinners will be prepared by a local chef, one will be a potluck). At these gatherings, there will be opportunities for structured critiques by established artists. Beyond these shared dinners, residents will be responsible for all their own meals.

Residents will receive a $1,000 stipend and access to fresh food grown in the Center’s garden.

Fees: $15
