Ox-Bow (IL), International Call for Applicants: Fully-Funded 2017 Fall Residency for Artists or Writers
Deadline: May 1st, 2017, midnight CST
Two, three, and five week residencies, September 3rd – October 7th, 2017
From their call: Fall residents are given the time, solitude, and focus often unavailable to so many working artists and writers. Each fall between 25 and 30 artists participate in the residency creating a diverse community of engaged peers. At Ox-Bow, artists can enjoy 24-hour access to their studios, and an inspirational setting, free from the expectations of commercial and academic demands. During the fall season, Artists in Residence have the opportunity to work in studios not available during the summer session. The fall is an ideal time for writers to apply as there are studios dedicated specifically to them. It’s also a great time to propose group or collaborative work. The residency provides:
- Studio (access to ceramic, printmaking, and painting studios—if you would like access these facilities make sure this is clearly stated in your application)
- Private room (shared bathrooms and showers)
- Meals (three meals a day)
- A diverse community of engaged artists
- Opportunities to share work: slide presentations and/or readings
We are happy to announce that in 2016 Ox-Bow furthered our commitment to the needs of artists by no longer charging fees for the residency program (including application, room & board, and residency fees). All accepted residents continue to be fully funded. Artists may apply for additional stipends to help pay for the cost of travel, supplies, and time away from work.

About: The Ox-Bow School of Art was founded by the School of the Art Institute of Chicago faculty in 1910. Ox-Bow’s serene natural environment offered its founders the opportunity for intense focus and a community of support on its secluded 115 acres, located approximately 150 miles from Chicago near the resort town of Saugatuck, Michigan. This tradition continues today. Every summer, over 500 artists travel to the Ox-Bow campus to study, teach, and make art.
