Osage Arts Community Residency

September 18, 2014


Emerging and advanced visual artists of all disciplines, as well as writers, and composers, are encouraged to apply for residency at Osage Arts Community. We also invite collaborative teams to apply. However, students are not eligible. At this time, we do not accommodate for performance or production crafts. Our primary criteria is the quality of your body of work and your ability to work in an extremely isolated environment. Although preference is given to new applicants, we look forward to seeing artists at Osage on a regular basis as alumni! Feel free to update and resubmit your application for review.


OAC’s current facility consists of a 6,000 sq. ft. multi-purpose shop, two general purpose studio spaces (25’ x 45’ and 20’ x 40’) both for painting/drawing/sculpture/mixed media, equipped with easel, tables, hand tools, and large wall space. The 155-acre site of land that surrounds the buildings can supplement indoor studio space. The studio’s best feature is privacy, which can serve as outdoor studio space, a beautiful view of the natural environment, excellent natural light, and walls upon which one can easily attach paper, canvas, and other art materials. There is wooded and cleared land available for outdoor installations or workspace. Our location on the Gasconade River allows extended explorations of the river.

Your submission will be reviewed by a panel representative of diverse artists and community members. They will select the resident from the applicant pool. All applications will be reviewed on the basis of: seriousness of purpose; harmony with OAC mission; creative use of the time, space and environment; and quality of proposal.


Application Deadline: None
Resident Season: Year-round
Average length of residencies: 2 months
