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 an entire year.
Professional visual artists 21 years of age or older, involved in painting, drawing, sculpture, printmaking, photography, video, digital media and installation are invited to apply. Grants are not made in the disciplines of performance art, writing, music or production crafts.
The studios are large, open spaces that measure approximately 30 ‘x 25 ‘x 10’. Artists are housed in a complex of six houses and 8 studios located on fifty acres of land. Houses are furnished with major furniture items, appliances, and utensils within reason. The compound also has specialty workshops: printmaking studio (stone litho/etching), digital media room, woodshop, welding shop, and ceramics studio.
A stipend of $1100 per month is offered by RAiR to each artist-in-residence.
