The Monhegan Artists’ Residency announces the opening of the application period for summer 2019 grants on Monhegan Island, Maine. The program provides studio space, comfortable living quarters, a modest stipend, and time for visual artists to reflect on, experiment, or develop their art and ideas while living in an artistically historic and beautiful location.
The application period runs from February 1st through March 17th and is open to all artists with significant ties to the state. There will be two 5-week grants, one in June and another in September; as well as a 2-week grant in July designed for artist-teachers (grades K-12) who work in Maine.
The jurors for 2019 applications are photographer Margo Halverson, chair of the graphic design program of the Maine College of Art; the Portland painter and art instructor John Knight; and Rockland-based artist and arts administrator, Leith MacDonald of the Farnsworth's Wyeth Study Center.
Artists in all visual media, including painting, drawing, sculpture, photography, printmaking, digital, video, or other new media are encouraged to apply.
Successful applicants will be notified by April 15th.
