Who: Colorado Art Ranch provides one-month residencies
to writers and visual artists from around the world. We encourage emerging
artists, as well as established artists, to apply. Because Colorado Art
Ranch is located in a different area each session (with varying studio
space), we can accommodate the following art disciplines: painting,
sculpture, drawing, photography, and mixed-media, performance, eco-arts, and ceramics. Writers of every
genre are eligible to apply.
What: Each residency has a mix of artists and
writers. Each Artist in Residence receive free admission to the Artposium and living
and studio space for one month. Residents are responsible for travel,
food, and an application fee,
shipping or removing their work at the end of the residency. Each resident
gets their own room, but may share a bath and cooking facilities. The rooms are private, but this is a group living situation.
Where: Colorado Art Ranch nurtures the creative spirit
in beautiful, secluded, and supportive environments throughout Colorado.
Artist Residencies are located in donated or rented space in selected towns
of rural Colorado. The landscapes of Colorado--open meadows, rock outcroppings,
and mountain views--inspire artists at a visceral level. The simplicity
of the setting is a dramatic foil for the residents' struggle
to express complex ideas.
How: Artists will be selected by a panel
chosen by the executive director and board members.
