International Call for Applicants: Roswell Artist-in-Residence Program (NM) 2018 – 2019, with stipend
Deadline: June 1st, 2018, 10:00pm MST
The Roswell Artist-in-Residence Program provides year-long residencies for visual artists. A stipend, or living allowance, of $800 per month is offered along with $100 for a spouse/partner and $200 per child living with the grantee. The additional stipend for children is sponsored in part by a grant from the Sustainable Arts Foundation. A generous materials stipend is also available through a grant by the Frederick Hammersley Foundation.
In-residence grants are offered to artists involved with painting, drawing, sculpture, installation, printmaking and other studio-based art making. Grants are not made in the disciplines of performance art or production crafts.
The studios are large, open spaces that measure approximately 30 ‘x 25 ‘x 10’. These areas are well-lighted and convertible to the artist’s requirements. Artists are housed in a complex of six houses and 10 studios located on fifty acres of land. Each artist is provided with a house that can amply accommodate either a single person or a family. Rent, utilities (except telephone), repairs and maintenance costs are borne by the Program. Houses are furnished with major furniture items, appliances and utensils within reason. The printmaking facility is a small, fully operational studio – basically lithographic/etching in nature.

About: Well known by artists as the “Gift of Time”, the Roswell Artist-in-Residence Program was established in 1967 to provide gifted studio based visual artists with the unique opportunity to concentrate on their work in a supportive, collegial environment for a whole year. This “gift of time” allows artists to work without distraction in an effort to break new ground and focus on individual goals. The Roswell Artist-in-Residence Program serves as a contemporary counterpoint to the traditional arts of the Southwest, reinforces the Program’s interest in strengthening the vitality of art in New Mexico and has been a catalyst in broadening community understanding of contemporary art.
