FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
MONHEGAN—The Monhegan Artists’ Residency Corporation (MARC) is pleased to announce that it is now taking applications for its 2018 summer program. Two 5-week residencies are available to Maine-based visual artists during the weeks of May 26 to June 29, and September 11 to October 16. There is also a 2-week residency for a Maine art teacher (grades K-12) from June 30 to July 13. Applications are being accepted online through Submittable.com from February 1 through March 17.
For well over 150 years, Monhegan Island has inspired countless artists and continues to attract contemporary artists to its unique coastal island landscape. MARC keeps this tradition alive and well by providing housing, studio space, and a weekly stipend to its artist residents. Not just for landscape painters, the residency is open to artists working in new media, photography, sculpture, drawing, painting, and multi-media. For more information about the program, its past residents, and applications details, visit monheganartistsresidency.org.
This year’s applications will be reviewed by a panel of three jurors: Kathryn Jovanelli, Assistant Director, University of Maine Museum of Art, Bangor; Henry Wolyniec, artist and building manager, Space Gallery, Portland; and Nathaniel Meyer, artist and teacher, Lewiston High School, Lewiston. Founded in 1989 the Monhegan Artists' Residency is a volunteer-run 501(c)3 nonprofit supported by donors, art galleries, corporate sponsors, and foundation grants.
