Roswell artist-in-residence program

September 17, 2014

WHO:

Artists should actually need studio time to focus on their work.

WHAT:

For over forty years the Roswell Artist-in-Residence Program has provided talented artists a long-term opportunity to free themselves from the entanglements of their jobs, careers and other responsibilities, to focus on their creative imaginations. Roswell is remotely located, away from the trends and noise of our cultural capitals and provides the artist an opportunity to look inwardly, over an entire year, at the sources of their vision and the reach of their talent. The Roswell Residency is not project based nor is it directed by the issues of any moment in the world of art ideas. The Program is solely dedicated to the development of the individual artist. Production of artwork is seen as a byproduct of creative introspection, not as an end in itself. Nor is there any effort on the part of the Program to enforce interaction among the artists through predetermined activities or requirements. The goal of the Program is to be as free of institutional rigmarole as humanly possible. As a consequence, the usual apparatus of prestige, status and reputation are ignored. While the artists that receive the RAiR Fellowship enjoy a reasonable standard of living, most will have to make personal sacrifices to participate. The RAiR Program appreciates that the time, distance and isolation can come at a cost. Those artists who do immerse themselves, undertake a long process of personal discovery and it is hoped, a stronger connection to the sources of their personal vision.

In residence grants are offered to artists involved in painting, drawing, sculpture, printmaking, photography, installation and other fine art media. Grants are not made in the disciplines of performance art or production crafts.
