The Long Meadow Art Residency was conceived in 2021 to support artists who create using
diverse mediums, studying a range of disciplines, from different backgrounds, of all ages
EXPERIENCE: A three-month art residency committed to our vision of incorporating wellness. The participant will have access to a thorough medical evaluation, room and board, a state-of-the-art studio, art supplies, a stipend, access to a vehicle, support of an artistic community, and assistance from a diverse professional board.
This opportunity offers the artist an experience to live in a two-bedroom home with a large, private studio space in an adjoining building, in the stunning Berkshire mountains - a serene and beautiful location to not only explore physically but also creatively.
Mentorship will be provided in a variety of ways, including guidance from artists and gallerists.
The Berkshires is a mecca of holistic health, yoga, meditation, and self-healing. The house/studio is in a secluded, quiet, beautiful location with an abundance of views, vistas, and fresh air.
The Berkshires has a thriving, intellectual, and curious community that is eager to receive, engage, and welcome artists. Although this is not a requirement, we would be excited to celebrate any of your accomplishments before, during, or after the residency.
The residency applicants will be given the hold open houses and a final show and/or photo booklet of work will be determined based on the individual artist.
